Paul Pogba of Manchester United is inspiring the club to the top of the Premier League table with outstanding performance week in and week out especially since December 29, 2020.
His form in the last couple of games has pushed Manchester United to the first spot on the league table with 40 points in 19 league games. After 3-2 defeat Manchester United suffered in the hands of Leicester City on December 26, 2020, the coach of the club, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer realized the importance of the 27-year-old center-midfielder and has never stopped using him afterward.
In return, Paul Pogba has ensured that Manchester United maintained a perfect run in the last 5 Premier League games that the club’s coach allowed him to play 90 minutes of football. In those 5 league games, Paul Pogba scored two goals and provided an assist.
In Manchester United’s last Premier League game which was against Fulham, Paul Pogba was in action and scored the only goal in the match which established United at the top of the league table.
After the match, Pogba took to social media to urge his teammates not to relent, noting that it was “still a long way to go! Let’s keep it up boys”, in the caption of photos showing when he was celebrating his goal against Fulham.
While in an interview with reporters, Pogba noted how good it is that Manchester United are doing well in the league but said he and his teammates want the performance to “carry on again”.
“We want it more and more and more. Never enough, we’re still far from the trophy”, the Frenchman said.
“This is the Premier League, it’s not going to be easy. It’s hard to get there, it’s going to be even harder to stay there.
“We know we have to keep focused, and keep working, keep playing, keep pushing and believe in ourselves. Not arrogance, but be arrogant in the way that, yes – we’re proud to be there, but we’re not there yet.
“We didn’t do nothing, you know? We haven’t done anything yet, so we have to keep working.”
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba has been in the news for the wrong reason since Friday, January 23, because he declared the club’s free signing Edison Cavani a better striker than the likes of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Mason Greenwood.
Pogba praised the experience of the striker who joined Manchester United last summer from Paris Saint Germain. According to the French midfielder, Edison Cavani knows how to be at the right place at the right time.
“We have talented players – Anthony Martial, Rashy in front, even Mason, that they can shoot from outside and stuff – but they don’t have this, the experience of Edi, and they don’t have the same quality of Edi as well”, Pogba said.
“So I think we complete each other with the players we have in front and Edi can obviously show his class like he did today. Those goals that we needed, at the right time, he’s always there at the right time and the right moment to help the team to win.”
Since Paul Pogba made this statement, most football fans across the world believe that it is a jab at the younger strikers at the club who are more regular in Ole’s squad than the 33-year-old Uruguayan striker.
