Brother reveals Paul Pogba wanted to leave Manchester United

Brother reveals Paul Pogba wanted to leave Manchester United

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the afternoon after Paul Pogba intercepted a loose pass by the Foxes and played the striker in with a beautifully weighted ball over the top, which was promptly slotted into the bottom corner.

He is United's No 1 forward now and Romelu Lukaku won't get near the team.

The 13 time Premier League winners are now back in the race to finish in the top four, are still in the FA Cup after a win away to Arsenal, and are certainly more positive about their chances against PSG in the Champions League.

"In the Premier League it's impossible to go unbeaten from when the manager came, to have 25 or 30 games unbeaten", he said.

But Herrera refused to weigh in on whether Solskjaer should get the job permanently or compare what he has done to predecessor Jose Mourinho, despite the immediate turnaround since the Portuguese was sacked in December. "We are benefitting", said Lukaku in an interview with Canal.

In fact, United have kept away clean sheets in their last three league matches under Solskjaer - with the penalty Victor Camarasa netted for Cardiff in the Norwegian's first match in charge the only Premier League away goal United have conceded during his reign.

"Fulham is a massive game for us because I think Chelsea is playing City".

The 29-year-old is now a regular starter in a three-man midfield with Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.

"[Pogba] is happy. In training, he is told all the time: 'Paul, we see you happy!' And after he laughs". I feel good with them and I think we work well together but we have a big squad and a busy schedule and we're going to need everyone.

"Eric Bailly was a nervous wreck away against Brighton earlier in the season and Victor Lindelof wasn't much better - but the pair looked like the superb former Italy defenders Fabio Cannavaro and Alessandro Nesta at their best against a very unsafe Leicester team".
