Man Utd star Pogba takes shot at referee over Maguire disallowed goal


Resurgent Man United back on top of the Premier League

Plotting the course of Manchester United's league position over the years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired leads to a graph that resembles a heart-rate monitor which, if hooked up to a patient, would inevitably prompt a prescription for stress relief. Tuesday's 1-0 win at Burnley completed an incredible 33-point swing in United's favour in the time since.

The video assistant referee provided the main talking point of a tense opening period, with last man Robbie Brady avoiding sanction for bringing down Edinson Cavani due to a Luke Shaw foul in the build-up.

"We're ready, we're excited, we're hungry for it", Solskjaer said, "and it's a test of character and quality again".

Josh Brownhill struck a shot wide for Burnley and substitute Matej Vydra saw an effort deflected into the side netting by Bailly as the hosts finally went on the attack, with the VAR checking a handball against Maguire in the box. But because the Shaw incident came first, Brady was let off the hook.

"I thought in the second half we played really well and then you expect the onslaught in the last five minutes but we held out".

Pogba has now scored 27 Premier League goals for United, but this was only the third time one of them has decided a game where the margin has been one goal.

A trip to Anfield is up next for Solskjaer's men as they look to build on their lead at the top of the table. That is the kind of influence a player of Pogba's stature and reputation should have on a much more consistent basis.

Wolves has now won just once in eight league games since striker Raul Jimenez fractured his skull in a match at Arsenal at the end of November.

"But at the moment we are where we are". While United have the talent, questions remain over whether they have the depth. Today was a difficult game and it's going to be harder and harder. "In football, the next one is always important; the next one is the biggest final, and we will see", he said.

Pogba was controlling the game from midfield and it was fitting he was the match victor as his volley from Marcus Rashford's cross deflected off Matt Lowton and through the legs of Pope. If it's the first game or the last game, it's a big, big difference.

United pushed to get this game in hand played this week, and going into Anfield with a three game advantage may turn out to be a masterstroke for the players' confidence.
