Manchester United's Paul Pogba calls for more attacking football at Old Trafford

Jose Mourinho has told his Manchester United players to learn from the attitude Wolves displayed in Saturday's 1-1 draw.

"We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves", he added. "Then after the second half we tried to defend a bit more against the counter-attack". 'When we play like this it's easier for us'.

"It's not me", Pogba noted, even as he failed to respond when questioned, if there was enough pace and movement in United play during the match.

Having already lost to Brighton and Tottenham prior to the last worldwide break, they are now eight points off league leaders Liverpool after six games.

The result came as another blow to Manchester United's Premier League title hopes, and it left them sixth in the table and eight points behind early leaders Liverpool FC.

Manchester United's Paul Pogba.

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is set to sign a new contract despite being linked with a departure from Old Trafford, the Star reports.

Pogba joined United from Juventus for a then world record £89m in 2016 and helped France win the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation in the summer.

"I'm not the manager, I can not, like, say that, but obviously we should show more options of playing". "Obviously we should show more options of playing but I can not say that because I'm a player", Pogba said. "That's my way of thinking - we should move better, we should move more, yeah. Overall we don't deserve more than this". He is just outright failing to influence games where it counts the most, also missing four of his five big chances since joining the club - including an infamous open goal against Newcastle United last season. They fall into a pattern of sitting back once going ahead in games, whether at home or away, and allow other teams to regain a foothold in the fixture.

"We've played six games in the Premier League, it's not that we should get anxious, but we should obviously get closer - get closer and closer". Maybe he's right, I don't know.
