Pogba And Bruno?
“Am not happy we didn’t win,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
“Football can be strange. Last year Spurs had us for 40 minutes and today it is the opposite. The performance is not that bad.
“First 25 minutes we started slowly. Paul Pogba is one of the best footballers in the world and it is great to have him again. He is happy to be back, he has endured a 10-month injury nightmare. I am sure everyone can see he is hungry for games.
“It is a different team now compared to when he got injured. We are a club that want all best players in the world to play together. Pogba showed he can play alongside Bruno.”
Fernandes’ penalty cancelled out Steven Bergwijn’s goal in the first half after awful defending from Manchester United defenders in the first half.
