Jamie Carragher salutes ‘sensational’ Man United star
Jamie Carragher praises Paul Pogba following his fine display for Manchester United against Stoke on Monday
Jamie Carragher has lavished praise on Paul Pogba following his sparkling performance in Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Stoke City on Monday night.
The France international was in superb form for the Red Devils on Monday night as he helped them claim all three points to move to within 12 points of leaders Manchester City in the table.
Pogba notched up two assists for the Red Devils as goals from Antonio Valencia, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku secured the victory for Jose Mourinho’s men.
The 24-year-old now seems to be approaching his best form for Manchester United after having struggled with injury at the start of this season.
And former Liverpool FC star Carragher was extremely impressed by what he saw from Pogba in the victory over the Potters on Monday night.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Carragher said: “His passing was sensational. There were a couple of left-foot passes in the first half…
“It’s hard to put Pogba in a box in terms of what his position really is. He’s a central midfield player on paper but he rarely finds himself in that position.
“That’s what he’s about, breaking through from that central midfield position.”
Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they travel to Turf Moor to take on Burnley.
The Red Devils, who finished in sixth place in the table last term, are aiming to keep the pressure up on leaders Manchester City in the second half of the season after Pep Guardiola’s men lost 4-3 to Liverpool FC last weekend.
