Manchester United fell to a dismal 4-0 defeat against Everton on Sunday as their poor run of form continued under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and club-record signing Paul Pogba was one of a number of hugely disappointing performers on the day.
If the Red Devils want to qualify for the Champions League next season then they need to turn their form around quickly, as they once again failed to show up against the Toffees at the weekend.
Because of his price tag Pogba will always be one of the players that fans scrutinise first, and there wasn’t a lot to be impressed by from the Frenchman on Merseyside.
While he did produce a neat pass through for Marcus Rashford early on, he once again failed to exert himself on a game like we know he can.
It was a hot day but that is no excuse – the 26-year-old hasn’t been good enough for the majority of the time since his return to Old Trafford.
Who would win out of Man Utd’s treble winners and Man City today? Fans discuss in the video below…
While some United supporters may feel that the 2018 World Cup winner doesn’t really care about the club, there was one image from the heavy loss that suggested that isn’t the case.
In a photo where Nemanja Matic and Chris Smalling are pictured with their hands on their hips looking dejected, Pogba is at least showing some raw emotion and some leadership skills as he shouts at his teammates.
While the Frenchman clearly shouldn’t be devoid of criticism having not turned up again, this does disprove any possible myths that he may have given up on the club.
It’s a small positive step, and now he needs to step up and help the team secure a top-four finish in the coming weeks.
