Paul Pogba Opens Up About His Controversial Sending Off Against Arsenal

Do you think United can beat City without Pogba?

Graeme Souness has laid into Paul Pogba after his performance in Manchester United 2-1 win against CSKA Moscow last night.

Second-placed United now sit eight points behind leaders City, who have only dropped two points from their 15 league games so far this season. That task has been made monumentally harder with his absence, which is unfortunate, having been sent off for going studs up on Hector Bellerin.

But what is it exactly that Pogba does that nobody else in a Manchester United shirt can?

Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba are the midfield pair after establishing an axis which brings out the best of both of them.

It was hardly ideal preparation for one of the most intense fixtures in their schedule but Fernandinho thinks the loss could be just the jolt the City team needed to stave off any complacency. We need to win as well. We need to be 100 per cent ready and focused to do our best and try to win the game'.

'So if you have to choose a moment to lose then this would be the right one. They are unbeaten in 40 home games after Tuesday night's win against CSKA, a stunning record, a club-record. "They need to win because they know that we are behind and we are closing and closing". There will still be a long way to go'.

"Of course you want Paul Pogba to play in an ideal world and I'm sure he [Jose] will say that".

Despite that it is expected that City wil come to the Theatre of Dreams all guns blazing, and Mata has insisted that they need to keep the "pace" that they have had in the last few matches to defeat City and to be in a "position" for the title come May.

Eight points now separate the two sides at the top of the Premier League with City yet to taste defeat in the English top-flight, but United will be boosted as City's 27-game unbeaten run came to an end on Wednesday with Shakhtar Donetsk defeating them 2-1 to secure their own passage into the European knockout stages.
