Paul Pogba revelled he is determined to finish in the top four with Manchester United this season after their 3-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday moved Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side into the Champions League places.
The Frenchman continued his fine run of form against Fulham, scoring twice to take his tally to 13 goals for the season so far, and was United’s standout player at Craven Cottage.
Anthony Martial created Pogba’s first before scoring a sublime solo goal for United’s second, and victory ensured Solskjaer is still yet to taste defeat as manager since replacing Jose Mourinho.
The Reds have won eight of their nine Premier League fixtures under the Norwegian, and Pogba revealed following the win that the squad are determined to continue their good form and finish in the top four this season.
It feels great to win, that is what we wanted. Since Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] came in we talked about this, we want to be at the top, in the top four. There is still a long way to go, but we are there, and we want to stay there now. We were very far away, but now we are back in the top four through good results. But like I said there is still a very long way to go and we have big games coming up and it’s not going to be easy.
United host Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their last 16 tie in the Champions League on Tuesday before facing Chelsea in the FA Cup and league leaders Liverpool.
