“Today I just had one shot and I kind of know the goalkeeper and I’ve been trying it in training,”he told Sky Sports post-match.
“I’ve been trying to score in the last games but it didn’t come, and today it arrived. I’m just really pleased to help the team as much as I can.”
That win means United set a new Premier League record and have become the first side in the competition’s history to win four consecutive matches by three or more goals.
“We are really pleased with ourselves, but we know we have to carry on,”insisted Pogba.
“We say before training that we have to carry on. That’s what Manchester United is and we want to keep the level up always.
“The performance today and in the last weeks has been very good and that’s the standard of Manchester United.
“I’ve been injured for a very long time and I just focused on myself, getting back and helping the team as much as I can,” Paul added on his own form.
“This year we have two goals: to win the Europa League and the FA Cup. So we focus on that.
“We didn’t win the Premier League and that’s the goal. We didn’t win anything [so far] this year and there’s a lot still to do.
