Jose Mourinho’s side are looking like a typical club managed by the Portuguese coach. Strong, physical, and most importantly, clinical. We’re no longer a side based on measured possession, but now attacking at every possible opportunity which is exciting to watch.
Manchester United grabbed an excellent 2-0 victory at home to Southampton on Friday evening, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring both of the goals. There was also a stunning debut for Paul Pogba, fresh off of his £89million world record transfer back to Old Trafford.
The pair were both named in WhoScored’s second Premier League Team of the Week this season, and more than deserved their place in a side that really impressed.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic came in with an excellent 8.30 rating thanks to that super header and clinical penalty. Paul Pogba has one of the highest ratings in the side, with an 8.85, thanks to completing the most take-ons of any player in the league all weekend (8). The only player to score higher in the team was Curtis Davies of Hull City.
