Pogba reflects on win over Fulham at Craven Cottage

Paul Pogba wasn't bought for a world-record fee to stand out against teams second from bottom in the table like Fulham, but there are no complaints when he does.

Just brilliant. For a guy who looked to be on his way out of the club under Jose Mourinho, he is one of the many who have been revitalized under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 25-year-old lashed a lethal left-footed finish past Sergio Rico in the first half and converted a 65th-minute penalty to bookend Anthony Martial's fine solo effort in a confident showing three days out from the Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford.

"You don't know what you're doing" chanted a number inside Craven Cottage as Ranieri brought on Cyrus Christie for Schurrle, with fans singing the name of substitute Ryan Sessegnon.

Owen replied: "Well, I think he's already made it his own in many ways, Robbie". We want to be in the top four.

"But my job description was, until the summer, get us playing in a certain way, get the mood back, get results - of course, I love every single minute of it and I'll take whatever comes when it comes".

A very forward thinking attitude but, unlike the players themselves, we can afford to look back and reflect upon the performance.

After sweeping Fulham aside with a 3-0 win at Craven Cottage yesterday for their 10th win in 11 matches under the Norwegian, he found it hard not to praise his team to the skies.

It turns out him and Pogba are class - Mourinho should've used them. That's what we're trying to do at the moment.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is fast becoming "the best Premier League player", according to pundit Jamie Redknapp. This game was really important.

His ability to pick out a player from over 50 yards away can be uncanny when he's on form and he even seemed to form a connection with Dalot on the right flank.

United, by contrast, remain unbeaten under Solskjaer ahead of matches against PSG, Chelsea and Liverpool.

"He's been a threat in the first 20 minutes like you wouldn't believe".

The England global has scored nine Premier League goals this season, six of which have come since Solskjaer took over in December. Have your say in the comment section below.
