Former Manchester United star Louis Saha has compared Paul Pogba with Paul Scholes in the aftermath of the Red Devils’ FA Cup triumph over Arsenal on Saturday. The France international has experienced an upheaval in league form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge at the helm and Saha has now gone to compare the midfielder with one of the club’s greats.
Pogba had gone through a mixed spell under former boss Jose Mourinho and there was one point where he could not command a role from the starting lineup. However, things have changed with the dismissal of the Portuguese and he has contributed five goals and four assists from the previous seven matches under Ole.
Despite the positives, the midfielder has yet to showcase the consistency through an extended period of time and it will be interesting to see whether he can exhibit the same during the remainder of the ongoing campaign. United are currently the in-form Premier League club after winning eight straight matches across all competitions and they have the opportunity to continue the run when they entertain Burnley in the midweek league game. United’s current form has put them within three points off Chelsea, who are currently holding the final Champions League qualification spot.
