Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani named in BBC TOTW following 3-1 win over Villa

A key Man United duo have been named in the latest BBC Team of the Week after a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa.

Manchester United Football Club play again later today, with games coming thick and fast over the next few days.

Before then, though, is time for reflection. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would come from behind yet again, in order to defeat Aston Villa 3-1. Goals from Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani would ensure the three points, all-but guaranteeing we’ll finish second in the league this term.

To us here at Old Trafford Faithful, that’s improvement. Sure, there’s still work to be done but we’re heading in the right direction. For their individual performances against Villa on Sunday, two Red Devils were named in Garth Crooks’ latest BBC Team of the Week.

Check out the BBC Team of the Week in full here:

First and foremost, we have Edinson Cavani. This selection is interesting, given El Matador didn’t even start this game. Our Uruguayan was a second-half substitute and it was his headed goal that ensured our victory.

His movement, rapport with Bruno Fernandes and overall ability is a massive reason as to why our front line has looked so potent recently. Long may that continue.

The second Red included in this XI is Paul Pogba. Although our Frenchman didn’t score, he would win the penalty which turned the tide in our favour. The overall performance from La Pioche was particularly pleasing. Body strength, intricate passing and good old-fashioned hard work. He was excellent.

I can make a strong case for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who in our opinion, should have also been included in this side. He was excellent on both sides of the ball for 90 minutes as he continues to improve as a footballer.

Congratulations, lads.
