Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba revealed last night that he has not given up hope of catching Pep Gaurdiola’s Man City at the top of the Premier League table.
The France international told Sky Sports:
“Obviously we see Manchester City in front of us and they lost,” he told Sky Sports.
“They are first so we always want to catch them, so it was good that they lost, so for us we have to think about ourselves.
“It’s good that they lose points but we have to go back to winning because we want to catch them again.
“We’re not looking to the past. We’re just looking to the future and the next games.
“We just want to catch City. We just have to focus on ourselves, keep winning and I think we will be okay.”
United strolled to a 3-0 victory over a struggling Stoke City at Old Trafford last night, and Pogba was in sensational form.
The 24-year-old displayed all the talent that made him the world’s most expensive player not so long ago. He put in a performance full of pace, power and supreme passing ability that saw him provide his eight and ninth assists of the season, a total which now ties him with Kevin De Bruyne at the top of the Premier League assist charts.
United’s victory and City’s loss to Liverpool this weekend, see’s the Old Trafford club move within 12 points of their bitter rivals. However, despite Pogba’s optimism, realistically it would take a monumental meltdown from Gaurdiola’s side for the Premier League title not to end up at the Etihad this May.
