Pogba Inspires Manchester United to another Win
Manchester United playmaker, Paul Pogba scored twice to inspire his team to their third consecutive win in the English Premier League.
Manchester United thrashed Bournemouth at the Old Trafford to increase their winning streak since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as manager of the club.
Pogba opened the scorecard in the 5th minute to give the home team the lead, he was on the scoresheet again in the 33rd minute to double the lead. Marcus Rashford makes it 3 in the 45th minute before Nathan Ake put one past David De Gea just before the Half Time whistle to make it 3 – 1.
The second 45 minutes started fine for the home team as they continue to attack till Pogba set up Lukaku in the 72nd minute to increase the lead. Eric Baily was sent off in the 79th for a bad tackle on Ryan Fraser. The game ended 4 goals to 1 in favor of Manchester United.
The Red Devils were comfortable throughout the game and they played like a team who wanted to win.
This is the first time Manchester United will win 3 consecutive matches in the EPL this season. They also scored 12 goals in 3 matches for the first time in the league this season.
The only area the new manager needs to work on is the defense, the team is yet to get it right in this area. Man Utd have only been able to keep 2 clean sheets in 20 league games this season.
Paul Pogba has been instrumental to the success of the new manager, Solskjaer. The French international midfielder who was having a quiet season when Jose Mourinho was in charge of the club has suddenly found his form as he has now scored 4 goals in 3 matches under the new manager.
Manchester United are still 6th on the log but only 3 points away from the fifth team and 8 points away from top 4. Bournemouth, on the other hand, are 12th on the EPL log.
