Owen Hargreaves heaped praise on Paul Pogba for his combative midfield display for Manchester United in their 1-0 win at Celta Vigo on Thursday night.

The French midfielder played the full 90 minutes as he was named man of the match in the Red Devils’ victory over the Spanish side as Manchester United took a step closer towards the Europa League final.

Pogba and his Manchester United team-mates will now turn their attentions towards their crunch clash with Arsenal in the Premier League at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

And former Manchester United defender Hargreaves was clearly very impressed with what he saw from the France star in Spain on Thursday.

Speaking during BT Sport‘s coverage of the game, Hargreaves said: “He was a pillar of strength, Paul Pogba.

“He played really well in midfield, winning the challenges, controlling the tempo and making key passes.”

Manchester United head into their clash with Arsenal on the back of their 1-1 draw with Swansea in the Premier League last weekend.
