Solskjaer discusses the role of ‘top lad’ Pogba in Chelsea win

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised ‘top lad’ Paul Pogba and says the midfielder ‘can do everything’ after the Frenchman’s performance in Manchester United’s 4-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday.

Pogba was at his influential best in United’s win over Frank Lampard’s side, providing two assists as a Marcus Rashford double and goals from Anthony Martial and debutant Daniel James sealed a comprehensive win.

The 26-year-old was linked strongly with a move away from Old Trafford throughout the summer, but shone in the club’s Premier League opener and Solskjaer was full of praise for the World Cup winner’s attitude and performance.

“Paul can do everything a midfielder can,” Solskjaer told his post-match presser.

“Paul can do many jobs, he can do an attacking midfield job and against Chelsea he was more of a link player.

“He’s a top lad and such a professional who loves playing football. When he gets onto that pitch he grows.”
