Manchester United v Chelsea is the Perfect Opportunity For Paul Pogba

Manchester United v Chelsea is the Perfect Opportunity For Paul Pogba

Manchester United take on Chelsea in one of the biggest matches of the Premier League so far and the mouthwatering clash is the perfect opportunity for Paul Pogba to hit back at some of his critics.

Pogba hasn’t started any of the previous four United matches, and some tabloids have even suggested his relationship with Jose Mourinho is so damaged that he’ll try and leave the club this summer.

However, the French midfielder looks set to be recalled for this weekend’s match at Old Trafford after coming off the bench against Sevilla on Wednesday night and performing well, and he’ll be hungry to prove a few doubters wrong.

United go into the match as 5/4 favourites with 888sport, with Chelsea priced at 5/2, and blockbuster matches like these always tend to come with an electric atmosphere inside the Theatre of Dreams – something a player like Pogba thrives upon.

For three years at Juventus, Pogba was undoubtedly one of the best midfielders on the planet, ironically whilst playing under current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, where he played a crucial role in the Old Lady reaching the 2015 Champions League final.

Whether or not he has the skills to be the best isn’t up for debate; United were fully justified in paying £89 million for him in the summer of 2016 and it’s only a matter of time before the cream rises to the top.

The fact that Jose Mourinho seems to have Switched to a 4-3-3 formation, as he did against Sevilla, could be a crucial moment in Pogba’s United career.

With Ander Herrera injured, Pogba looks set to finally be given the opportunity to torment teams from his favourite position on the field, and there’s every chance this Sunday’s match could be the game we look back on in years to come as the day Pogba finally justified his mammoth fee.
