Former Red Devil, Gary Neville, has hailed Paul Pogba’s influence in the win against Burnley on Tuesday.
Pogba was the man of the match, scoring an important goal, as Manchester United overcame a stubborn Burnley side to move three points ahead of Liverpool on the league table.
Neville used to be very critical of Pogba before now, but after the game, the pundit couldn’t help noting improvements in the Frenchman’s game.
He said, “I’ve been critical of Pogba because he’s been nowhere near his standard in the past few years.
“But he’s been the best player in the second half for Manchester United.
“Quite often Bruno Fernandes gets the plaudits, but his aerial presence has been fantastic in the last few weeks. He’s winning headers in the centre of midfield and then he gets forward after it, and it’s such a true strike.
“His influence on this second half has been big. That goal’s been coming.”
United have a huge obstacle next on their way to challenging for the title, as they take on Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, but we’re sure Solskjaer and his boys will be very prepared for the task ahead.
