Solskjaer identifies problem with Pogba & talks on catching up with Man City


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he has a ‘gripe’ with Paul Pogba after the midfielder missed an excellent chance in their 3-1 victory over Tottenham on Sunday.

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min fired the home team ahead a few minutes to half-time after Edinson Cavani’s goal was disallowed for a foul.

But United came back from the break scoring three goals through Fred, Cavani and Mason Greenwood to secure a 3-1 win.

Pogba had a clear-cut opportunity the second half to extend the Red devils lead but chose to go for an elaborate backheel which was eventually blocked.

And the Norwegian manager said he would continue to pester Pogba until he starts making use of opportunities front of goal.

“Yeah, he’s getting better and better, excellent,’ Solskjaer told beIN Sports. “He should have scored though, he should’ve volleyed it in.

“And that’s my gripe with him and I’ll keep pestering him on that.”

Solskjaer also said that it is not impossible to catch up with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City who currently sit eleven points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

“It’s not theoretically impossible, but it would take a lot and it would take a miracle, but sometimes miracles happen,” said Solskjaer.

‘For us though, we just have to get as many points on the board as possible and keep getting the wins that we need to make sure we’ve improved from last season and we want to at least get as close to them as possible.’
