Paul Pogba believes that Manchester United can rebound from their poor start to the Premier League. The Red Devils endured a massive 3-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford yesterday.This is the first time since 1992 that Manchester United have lost two of their first three Premier League matches.
Pogba said, “I think it was an undeserved defeat for us, in our desire, in everything we put into it. But football can be cruel. We just have to bounce back. It won’t be easy, but it’s just the start of the season. I prefer to start badly and end well than start well and finish badly. It’s bizarre. (Against Tottenham) we were determined, we started well, and in the end we lost 3-0. It’s a shock.”
Manchester United began the match well and had a really good first half. However, the second half was the complete opposite of the first half. Pogba said, “Even we don’t understand what happened. We started the game really well, we conceded two goals in the second half. The first goal was a real blow, we didn’t understand why, because we had the game in hand. One goal, two…we kept pushing, we had chances, and we conceded the third. The fans kept pushing us, they were really behind us. We feel really sorry for them, very disappointed, we wanted to do better.”
Manchester United next take on Burnley on Sunday.
