Manchester United returned to winning ways at the weekend, with a less-than-convincing 2-1 scoreline at home to West Ham United.
To the Hammers’ credit, they put up a real fight and on another day they could have easily scooped all three points. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side remained resilient, though, and pulled through to take all three points and keep their hopes of a top four finish alive.
Paul Pogba scored both United goals from the penalty spot so it’s no surprise to see the superstar Frenchman named in Garth Crooks’ BBC Team of the Week. Although the XI was mostly dominated by Liverpool and Manchester City players…
Credit where it’s due, Pogba took both of his penalties excellently and without him we wouldn’t have won the match. However, on the whole, I still thought he had a quiet afternoon.
The Frenchman didn’t create enough or demonstrate those powerful runs forward that we’ve become accustomed to watching. He’s one of the best players in the world, I feel there is still so much more to come from him.
One thing’s for certain, he deserved his spot in the Team of the Week but he will have to have a far more complete game when United visit the Camp Nou tomorrow evening.
