It’s safe to say, Paul Pogba is improving drastically under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.
The Frenchman endured a difficult spell under Jose Mourinho but the change of management is seemingly working wonders for the midfielder.
Without a goal since October, Pogba bagged a brace against Huddersfield on Boxing Day and one more strike in Solskjaer’s reign will equal his tally under Mourinho this season.
Two second half goals from the midfielder ensured United clinched maximum points, beating the relegation strugglers 3-1 at Old Trafford.
What Phil Neville Said
And after the game, former Reds midfielder Phil Neville praised Pogba in spectacular fashion, saying via BBC’s Match of the Day: "They had the best player on the pitch and probably the best midfielder in Europe on his day in Paul Pogba who has had a disappointing, horrendous last 18 months at the club because of the fall-out with the manager.
“It looked like the shackles were off today playing with that freedom of expression, anything is possible type attitude, playing with arrogance. The passing was back to his best.
“Look, he is the best player at the club when he is at his best and with performances like this.
“He should be a 12-15 goal a season person – he hasn’t been that in his career so far but he can be.”
Incredible commendation from Neville there.
Stats certainly show Pogba’s improving under Solskjaer but maybe that’s a bit too far from the BBC pundit.
The viewers certainly think so, anyway:
United now turn their attention to Sunday when they welcome Bournemouth to Old Trafford as Solskjaer aims to maintain his unbeaten run.
And maybe if Pogba puts in another display like he did on Tuesday, Neville will have him down to win next year’s Ballon d’Or.
