Pogba was back to his blistering best after a miserable night last week in the UEFA Champions league round of 16 match against PSG in which he saw red card. After giving a brilliant assist for Herrera’s goal, he finished the game with a well taken goal.
“It was a great response, playing against one of the best defensive midfielders in the world with [N’Golo] Kante next to him,” Solskjaer told a news conference. “We know [Pogba] is one of the best attacking midfielders in the world.
“He has vision, so the cross for Ander’s goal was fantastic. Then the way he plays the ball out to Marcus [Rashford] and gets into the box for the second was fantastic, too” – Ole Solksjaer
Since Ole took the job at Manchester United, Pogba has been in top form, showing signs of the midfielder we knew at Juventus before making the switch to Old Trafford. He has definitely been enjoying his football under Ole Solksjaer, scoring goals and making assists. Meanwhile Chelsea’s misery continues, after getting thrashed by united’s Manchester neighbors, Manchester City, they suffered another blow in the hands Manchester United, leaving them out of the FA cup.
So far, the former Juventus star has scored 9 goals and provided 6 assists outpacing the five goals and four assists he managed in 20 games under Mourinho. The win against Chelsea is also Solksjaer’s 11th win in 13 matches. It would be no surprise if he got the job on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
Manchester United face Liverpool next in the league, Pogba will hope to continue his brilliant form going into that match
