Manchester United weren’t at their best in the 0-0 draw against Valencia in the Champions League. Try as they might, the players could not score against the Spanish side and that had a lot to do with our lack of creativity in the final third.
Marcus Rashford did hit the post with a free-kick but that was as good as it got. United started with Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Rashford but the spark was missing from our play, once again.
The draw left us a couple of points behind Juventus in our Champions League group but there was a lot of criticism for the players and manager.
Jose Mourinho has had a tough time in recent weeks but Pogba was below par for the Red Devils on Wednesday.
The Frenchman had one moment that is being called out by many as he tried to defend against a Valencia player and was beaten with skill. Pogba acted like he picked up an injury too after the player breezed past him.
Miraculously, the midfielder got back on his feet in seconds and many fans were unimpressed by his antics on the pitch.
Pogba suffered a season ending injury there, but was back on his feet in 5 seconds. Hallelujah ! pic.twitter.com/1ofz0HMkxU

Let’s see you do your talking on the pitch Paul. You need to really pick your game up and take this team forward. You have all the ability but we aren’t seeing it. We need to see much more 🙏
