Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United manager yesterday was pleased by Paul Pogba’s performance against Sheffield United.
Solskjaer was happy with Pogba’s performance in Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Sheffield United yesterday.
United manager Solskjaer applauded Pogba for his great performance.
“We made a decision. Of course, we know [Pogba’s] strength in the air. We knew he was going to be important for us. He won almost every single header,” he told a news conference.
“His vision, creativity. Paul’s responded really well to the work he’s been doing. He’s fit now. Excellent performance.”
Marcus Rashford scored a brace, either side of Martial’s goal, while Mason Greenwood was the only other United player to have multiple shots.
Solskjaer hopes the trio can build on their performances.
“I don’t think it’s a key to get them on the pitch, it’s key to get them performing. We need them to kick on, to start scoring goals,” he said.
“We’ve done okay without them really firing. They showed their capabilities, now we need their consistency. Very happy with all three of them.”
United, who climbed into sixth in the table, made another slow start as a Dean Henderson error allowed David McGoldrick to open the scoring, with the Sheffield forward also netting a second late on.
Solskjaer was delighted to come away with three points, with United only five points behind leaders Liverpool.
“I don’t have any frustrations. We got three points from a difficult game, a difficult place. You don’t expect it to be comfortable,” he said.
“The goals we scored were excellent. You have to accept the opposition have weapons, armoury that can hurt you,” Solskjaer concluded.
