Arsenal legend feels Man Utd star back to his best after dark days

Manchester United have been in terrific form ever since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as the manager of the club

The Red devils have won all 7 of their fixtures that Solskjaer has overseen. 6 of these have come in the Premier league. Their resurgence under the treble-winner has seen them close the gap between them and the top 4 sides. Going into the next round of weekend’s FA Cup fixtures, Manchester United are placed sixth with 44 points from 23 games. Their FA Cup opponents Arsenal are level on points with them, but ahead on goal difference. Chelsea occupy the 4th spot with 47 points.

Solskjaer’s Manchester United has been completely different from that of Mourinho’s. Some of the stars who were struggling for form and consistency under Mourinho have now emerged to be their best players in the last few games. There is no better example than Paul Pogba. The world cup winner had fallen out with Jose Mourinho, but has been a completely different player under the former United forward. Former World cup winner Emmaneul Petit feels the 25 year old is enjoying and looking much better now,

We all know that if you don’t enjoy what you are doing you will probably face big frustration on the pitch, disillusions and Manchester United had to change on the pitch,” he said.

“The results and the behaviour on the pitch, the body language as well… if I look at Manchester United now, I see happy players, smiling – I can’t remember the last time I saw that.

“For me, Pogba is one of the best examples. (Marcus) Rashford as well, those guys never smiled and of course they have won seven games in a row. The confidence is back and this team is not the same as the team I saw five or six weeks ago.

“This is the way we are living now – he can hide, we all know that the power is not in the manager’s hands, the power is in the player’s hand.”

Author’s Take

Paul Pogba is finally looking like the player he was at Juventus and is certainly justifying why Manchester United paid such a huge amount to bring him back to Old Trafford.
