Paul Pogba predicts where Man United will finish this season
Paul Pogba is confident that Manchester United will be able to win the Premier League this season
Paul Pogba is confident that Manchester United can win the Premier League title this season.
The Red Devils have certainly started the new season strongly, after having recorded back to back 4-0 victories over West Ham United and Swansea City in their opening two games.
Manchester United’s Premier League form last season left a lot to be desired, with the Red Devils struggling to find consistent form in the top flight and eventually ending up in sixth place.
However, they still secured their return to the Champions League this term by winning the Europa League in Jose Mourinho’s first campaign in charge.
Now, Manchester United will be setting their sights on winning the Premier League title for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement back in 2013.
And France midfielder Pogba is confident that the Red Devils have what it takes to prise the title away from Chelsea this season.
Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, Pogba said: “The biggest challengers? We are our own rivals and we think about ourselves first. But we don’t have to be scared of anyone in the league because we know we are a strong team as well. We know we can do great this season.
“I hope [we can win the title]. Every team is strong, like when Leicester won it two years ago and nobody expected it, so you don’t know what’s going to happen.
“We started very well, but we can end up bad and we don’t want this. We want to be focused from game to game.”
Manchester United are currently preparing to host Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon as they look to continue their strong start to the new Premier League season.
The Red Devils also won the EFL Cup in Mourinho’s first season in charge last term.
