Paul Pogba praised after brilliant performance against Bournemouth




– Paul Pogba has been challenged to show his current form in the bigger games

– Sky pundits Jamie Redknapp and Craig Bellamy want him to show consistency

– Pogba has scored back-to-back braces in United’s last two league matches

– He was the star man in Sunday’s 4-1 win over Bournemouth at Old Trafford

Paul Pogba excelled again for Manchester United in their devastating 4-1 win over Bournemouth but he has been warned he needs to show similar form in the big matches.

Sky Sports pundits Jamie Redknapp and Craig Bellamy hailed the performance of the Frenchman after he grabbed a brace and an assist for Marcus Rashford on Sunday.

But with high-flying Tottenham on the horizon and Paris Saint-Germain to come in the Champions League, Pogba has been challenged to dominate matches against the elite sides in Europe.

‘His critics will say he’s done it at Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth,’ Redknapp said.

‘He’s got to go and do it against Tottenham now at Wembley, that’s the benchmark. He was criticised and blamed for the manager going but it proves it wasn’t just him there were a number of players who were letting themselves and the club down but now that’s gone so it will be interesting to see where they can go now.’

Pogba was maligned under former manager Jose Mourinho, particularly near the end of the Portuguese’s reign when he was labelled ‘a virus’ having fallen out with his boss.

But since interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken charge, Pogba looks a new player, free of distraction and fall-out.
