United came back firing and it was Edinson Cavani, in the 25th minute to get the equaliser for a 1-all scoreline at the breather.
On the hour mark, Pogba stepped up to decide the contest, firing a superb angled drive across the diving Areola and into the far corner from 20 yards.
The win takes them to 40 points, two more than both Leicester and Manchester City, who had briefly taken top spot from the Foxes with a 2-0 win over Aston Villa.
Fulham remain in the bottom three, four points behind 17th-placed Burnley.
