Manchester United fans disappointed with Paul Pogba’s performance vs Brighton

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United fans were clearly unhappy with Paul Pogba’s performance in the defeat to Brighton in the Premier League on Friday night.

The Frenchman started the match in his preferred 4-3-3 formation but failed to make the kind of impact that would justify Jose Mourinho altering his own preferred tactics.

The Portuguese manager is known for loving to use the 4-2-3-1 formation but has specifically altered it to a three man midfield just for Pogba’s sake.

The truth is that the midfielder has dominated in games and performed poorly in games that he was used in with either formation.

It’s simply come down to a matter of consistency and it’s clear what United fans think about Paul when it comes to performing regularly.

Paul Pogba is certainly making a case to not feature in the Red Devils’ FA Cup final against Chelsea or even to start with France in the World Cup.

A manager’s worst nightmare is an inconsistent player as it means the player is not reliable and therefore cannot be trusted regardless of pure ability or talent.

There’s no denying Pogba’s quality but if he fails to show it regularly then there’s no point and Jose Mourinho may quickly lose faith in him.
