Manchester United (33/1 Premier League Outright) midfielder Paul Pogba says his side need to “change something” as they were beaten 4-2 by Leicester City on Saturday.
The Red Devils suffered their second defeat in three Premier League games, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men only taking one point from a possible nine. Saturday’s defeat means they dropped to fifth in the table, and Pogba says they must improve quickly if they want to win the league title.
“We have been having these kind of games for a long time and haven’t found the problem. We have conceded easy and stupid goals,” Pogba told Sky Sports.
“If we want to win the title, these are the games we need to win, even if they are very hard.
“We need to find the key for this change because we deserved to lose. I don’t know if it is the mindset of the players. We need to change something.”
Leicester grabbed all three points thanks to goals from Youri Tielemans, Caglar Soyuncu, Jamie Vardy and Patson Daka, with Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford scoring United’s goals.
In the first game of the day, Liverpool made a statement as they thrashed Watford 5-0, with Roberto Firmino netting a hat-trick. Sadio Mane became the third African player to score 100 Premier League goals, while Mohamed Salah (2/1 Premier League Top Goalscorer) scored his seventh goal of the season.
Chelsea (5/2 Premier League Outright) remain one point clear at the top of the table, but they were lucky to hang on as they beat Brentford 1-0 on their travels. Ben Chilwell scored the only goal of the game as Brentford were denied on several occasions by Blues keeper Edouard Mendy.
Manchester City kept pace with Chelsea and Liverpool, as Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne grabbed the goals in a 2-0 win.
The game of the day took place at Villa Park, as Wolves came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 against Aston Villa.
Dean Smith’s men were two-nil up thanks to goals from Danny Ings and John McGinn, but Romain Saiss, Conor Coady and Ruben Neves all scored in the final ten minutes to hand Wolves an incredible victory.
Southampton striker Armando Broja scored a goal on his first Premier League start as his side beat a depleted Leeds United 1-0, while Norwich City and Brighton played out a 0-0 draw at Carrow Road.
