The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for big things from Paul Pogba this season…
It’s going to be a big season for the Frenchman on so many levels, and he’ll be expected to start paying back his massive price tag.
Last season, he never looked in with a chance of making a particularly big impact in the Premier League. He struggled to dominate games, and that was reflected in Man Utd’s results. This season, though, it appears as though that tide has changed somewhat.
Man Utd have made a fantastic start to the Premier League season, and Pogba has been a big part of that. He is really putting his mark on games like never before, contributing going forward and defensively – with goals also creeping into his game.
He has been freed up by the arrival of Nemanja Matic, and that looks set to be a real game changer for the Frenchman. His average rating, as per Who Scored, has increased to over 8.0 in the Premier League so far this season, which when compared to just 7.7 last season shows a marked improvement.
The season may only be a few games old, but it’s clear that he has come on leaps and bounds over the last few months. Perhaps with the transfer fee over his head now put to the background, he has been able to free himself and perform, or perhaps Jose Mourinho’s methods are finally having a positive effect on him.
Whatever the case, it’s good news for Man Utd, and given that Pogba has been the standout figure at Man Utd this season – could a Player of the Year award be in the distance? We think so.
