Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba believes the club’s resurgent form is down to better team cohesion and a greater understanding of their duties on the pitch.
The French midfielder has played a vital role for United and has helped extend their current unbeaten run to 16 matches across all competitions.
Pogba adapted to first-team duties having spent roughly six months sidelined through injury, and has returned in excellent form and established a formidable partnership with Bruno Fernandes in midfield.
The creative duo have played a big part in United's resurgence, and the World Cup winner has pinpointed exactly what has changed for his side in recent weeks.
“You can tell that the team is improving a lot,” he told United Review.
“We play more as a team than we did before, we enjoy it even more, we defend together, we attack together, and this team is stronger as well. The players who are on the bench or who don’t play every time, when they come on they help the team so the mentality is good and is right. All this together has put us where we are today.
“As well though there is the defensive work that people don’t talk about – they do it. The pressing – they do it… that’s what you maybe don’t see that much. Football fans who know football see that and that’s the difference that we have and it’s great to see them at their best.
“I think it’s about the mentality – the attacking and defending that they do every time – that helps us, it helps the midfielders and the defenders and obviously the talent speaks for itself – the goals and the action and the football, everything.”
