Paul Pogba: Manchester United must 'attack, attack, attack' more at Old Trafford

Paul Pogba: Manchester United must 'attack, attack, attack' more at Old Trafford

Wolves could've easily nicked a win at United on Saturday and United's defensive deficiencies are the biggest problem for Mourinho to sort out as he chops and changes defensive players. Paul Pogba has now stepped up to the plate and criticised Mourinho's approach with the Red Devils.

He may have arrived at Manchester United on a free transfer, but Alexis Sanchez's Old Trafford career can still be classed as an expensive flop so far.

United ended their weekend match with Wolves 1-1 at home, putting another dent in their hopes of chasing the Premier League crown this season.

In fairness to Sanchez, he is a player who is expected to take risks and has attempted the sixth-most dribbles (74) in the Premier League during his time at Manchester United.

Asked why the Red Devils failed to pose more of a threat to Wolves, Pogba added, "I can't tell you because I'm a player - it's not me".

He had played a starring role for France under Didier Deschamps at the World Cup this summer, but has struggled to replicate the form on a consistent basis for his club.

"We're at home, and we should play much better against Wolves", said Pogba. "That's my way of thinking - we should move better, we should move more, yeah".

Manchester United have won only three of their opening six matches in the Premier League this season.

"When you're the manager of Manchester United, when you have the CV and the background of Jose Mourinho, and this is not ancient history, this is fresh history of the Europa League and the FA Cup or whatever, then of course you have it". Maybe he's right, I don't know. 'I remember him coming to the Lowry because we were with the England squad pre-Euro 2004, ' he said.

"What we can't do is go there and walk away at the end of the game and say "oh, we should have done that, we should have shown more against this team or on this occasion".
