Speaking to Sky Sports (h/t Manchester Evening News) after their win against Burnley, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that Paul Pogba is showcasing his best version at the club right now.

The Frenchman scored the only goal of the game against Burnley on Tuesday. He struck a sweet volley from 18 yards out after he was found by a Marcus Rashford cross.

Pogba, who was the Man of the Match against the Clarets, has been in great form in the past few weeks. And his manager believes that the midfielder is playing his best football right now.

New-found consistency

This was Pogba’s 7th appearance in the last 8 league games for United, and Solskjaer believes that injuries and Covid-19 are to blame for Pogba’s inconsistent start to the season.

“We’re seeing the best of Paul I feel. He’s getting better and better every game. He’s been injured and had Covid.”
