    Pogba has been fine. He’s been fantastic. It doesn’t matter what the media is saying because they are wrong. He’s been good his entire time at United.

    He is the least of their problems for sure.

    Agreed. I still think that right now it’s hard to judge United with arguably their most important player last season still missing (Matic). Pogba Fred and Pereira have been really good but none of them have the stabilization ability that Matic has

    Yeah I mean I said that before the left Juventus for United; the talent is all there but he just isn't smart enough as a player to be a top 5 player maybe even in his position let alone the world. He needs to be in the right structure and environment to really shine (like many players) but he is still a world class talent, incredibly skilled and athletic, so of course he's a great player regardless, and with the way that Sanchez has taken a complete nosedive he's also United's best player by a fair margin.

    If you’re including De Gea I wouldn’t say a fair margin. Right now I see Pogba and DDG as the top 2 most important players on this team. I think that Lukaku and Matic can take that step but right now it’s them and the rest.

    De Gea is a better player than Pogba. But overall I agree.

    I generally don't lump keepers in with outfield players because their jobs are so very different and the way they impact the game is very different, but yes de Gea is a better keeper relative to his peers than Pogba is as a midfielder.

    Fun fact: No team has spent less time in the final third than Manchester United during these first two games. Not even Huddersfield, who faced Chelsea and Manchester City.
