Solskjaer expects Pogba to get better with fitness

The 27-year-old tested positive for COVID-19 in late August and was forced to self-isolate for two weeks, meaning he was forced to drop out of the France squad for the UEFA Nations League games against Sweden and Croatia.

Our no.6 only returned to first-team training a week before our opening match against Crystal Palace – meaning he also missed out on the Reds’ only pre-season friendly, against Aston Villa on 12 September.

Pogba has started both of our two Premier League games so far, completing around 65 minutes in each, and Solskjaer believes we’ll see the midfielder continue to improve as he gets more game-time in his legs.

Ten minutes into the second half, United went in front through a wonderful goal from Marcus Rashford. Bruno fed the forward behind the home defence before the Wythenshawe man dribbled his way into the Brighton box.

With his left foot, our no.10 expertly scored the 10,000th goal in the club’s history.

Solskjaer’s verdict on Brighton 2 United 3

Neal Maupay put the hosts in front from the penalty spot on 40 minutes and United equalised almost straight away, via an own goal from Lewis Dunk, which was first attributed to Harry Maguire. 

Marcus Rashford then put us 2-1 up midway through the second half but, frustratingly, it looked like three points had been taken away when Solly March levelled in the 95th minute. 

In a remarkable conclusion, VAR awarded United a penalty after Maguire’s header struck the hand of Maupay and Bruno Fernandes duly scored to clinch an unpredictable victory on the south coast. 

While Solskajer was not pleased with United’s overall performance, the manager was delighted by the never-say-die attitude on display and commended his players for fighting until the very end…

Here’s our interview with the boss…
