Paul Pogba: Man United have found form because they’ve gelled as a team under Jose Mourinho

Paul Pogba believes Manchester United have found form in recent weeks because they’ve gelled as a team under Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese boss endured a mixed start to life at Old Trafford as he got familiar with his players, winning just five of his first 15 league games.

However, he has turned the ship around and has guided the side to a nine-game win streak, which could see them move into the top four if they beat Liverpool on Sunday.

Speaking about the squad, Pogba feels United are hitting form just in time to make a title challenge.

“I think it’s because we know each other even more now, we’ve been playing together for some time now so we have this connection and combinations on the pitch,” he said.

“I know how to find Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] for example or [Anthony] Martial or [Marcus] Rashford… we’ve been together for six months now and the group is more compact I would say and you’ve seen the results come with the manager and the coaches as well.

“I think everything is going in the right way and that’s what we want. It’s always hard when you take new players in because they need to adapt to English football and everything here. That’s happened and we’re doing great.”

United have been in brilliant form recently and Pogba has played a vital role in the club’s resurgence, but they still sit nine points behind leaders Chelsea.

Hopes are United can extend their unbeaten run against Jurgen Klopp’s men as a win on Sunday would be a big statement.
