Manchester United Football Club suffered another embarrassing loss to Newcastle United over the weekend, with Jose Mourinho’s men putting up little fight in the 1-0 defeat.
Perhaps Paul Pogba’s day as a whole sums it up perfectly. The Frenchman looked to be limping in the warm-up, before putting in an abject display and getting hauled off just after the hour mark. Then, as he sat on the bench, he cut an extremely frustrated figure, looking rather glum and somewhat moody.

I don’t know what’s going on with Pogba at the moment, but he’s just not firing on all cylinders right now. Perhaps he is carrying a slight injury, perhaps the system doesn’t suit him, or perhaps he’s just out of form. We’ll never know.
With the Champions League starting up again soon, we’re going to need Pogba to rediscover his best, and quickly. We’re so reliant on him when it comes to success and when he plays well, the team as a whole looks so much better. Hopefully, this is just a blip and we see our star midfielder putting in the commanding performances that we know he’s more than capable of.
