The Genius Media Nigeria reports that on a freezing cold night and with the odds looked stacked against them, Paul Pogba and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United proved their doubters wrong once again, as they went three points clear at the top of the Premier League with a 1-0 win at Burnley.
Sometimes, it’s luck you need to reach the summit. Sometimes, it’s a bit of world-class quality. And, every so often, it takes a mixture of the two.
Pogba’s 71st-minute winner was a case in point. His strike may have taken a decisive deflection off Matt Lowton but the Frenchman’s volley was a demonstration of excellent technique. He deserved his good fortune.
