Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Paul Pogba’s loss of form is not something he should be worried about.
The World Cup winner was once again underwhelming on Tuesday as United slumped to a 2-1 Premier League defeat to Wolves.
Scott McTominay’s first goal for the club gave United the lead at Molineux, but Diogo Jota equalised and United captain Ashley Young saw red after being booked twice for fouls on the Wolves forward.
After netting nine goals in Solskjaer’s first 12 games in charge, Pogba has not scored in his last seven games for the Red Devils in all competitions.
Ole said, “He could easily have had an assist after some great play with Romelu [Lukaku]. That’s just numbers and figures.
“Paul is working as hard as any player in the team – some days it just doesn’t come off.”
On Young’s red card in the game, Ole said, “When you are on a yellow before, you are always in danger if you go down, hit the ball first and follow through,” he added. “It’s a yellow card again.
“Probably a bad decision [by Young] but in the heat of the moment he thought he could reach the ball. It was just a little bit too high. I think Ash would like to have stayed on his feet.”
