Solskjaer sends message to Man Utd players after Paul Pogba’s title statement

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Paul Pogba to take his Premier League title message into the dressing room and motivate his team-mates.

The Red Devils continued their unbeaten run with a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa, breaking a top flight record in the process by becoming the first side to win four consecutive games by three or more goals.

Paul Pogba has been back to his best since action resumed and scored the final goal in the convincing triumph.

After the game, he remained far from content with what they have achieved as he pointed out there have still fallen short of expectations.

Pogba told Sky Sports: "We didn't win the Premier League, that’s the goal, and we didn't win anything this year so we have to keep working."

His manager Solskjaer later responded to those comments – and he believes they can be used as motivation to remain focused on their bid to mount a title challenge in the near future.

"I'm sure Man United will mount a challenge and get back to winning the league," Solskjaer said.

"When that's going happen is up to every single one who's here and how quickly we can make this process go.

"We're developing as a team, improving and we've come a long way in one season, so let's take Paul's word into the dressing room and expect and demand more every single day."

Solskjaer was also full of praise for Pogba, who netted his first goal in open play since last February.

"I think he is getting better and better," he said.

"He's improving, which is natural because he is getting game time and fitter and fitter. Very pleased with the way he is coming on.

"Second-half we played really well and another clean sheet, very happy with the way we came out second-half and created chances, we kept them away from our goal. We took about 20-25 minutes to get going and then we picked up the tempo."
