But what is it exactly that Pogba does that nobody else in a Manchester United shirt can?

Paul Pogba has claimed he would "stop playing" if he thought Manchester City could not be caught in the Premier League title race.

United's chances of gaining ground on Man City were dealt a huge blow when Pogba was sent off for his foul on Hector Bellerin against Arsenal last weekend.

"Of course, any team that loses such a good player, they are going to miss him", he said, as quoted by Sky Sports.

He can join the defensive side of Manchester United's game but he can also help the forward players because of his legs and passing ability so he makes them an very bad lot of a bigger threat.

"They're certainly more of a goal threat when Pogba's in the team but in terms of if you're on the back foot and you're looking to nick the game, he's not your man to be in the team, for me". They were beaten 2-1 by Shakhtar Donetsk in an inconsequential Champions League group match in Ukraine on Wednesday.

"The people around the club, when we start to win a lot of games, they start to say a lot of things and it's not good", he added.

"Manchester City against Manchester United has always been a big, big derby". To win those games, you need to give everything.

And also went on to score two against Arsenal in his Premier League debut, and then scored the only goal in the Manchester derby, making him the youngest ever scorer in a Manchester derby in the Premier League era. "They need to win because they know that we are behind and we are closing and closing". There will still be a long way to go'.

"But deep down in his mind, he'll want to stop Man City and that might be how to do it".

"It's a derby, we have confidence, we feel really strong and we want to win".

United have an embarrassment of numbers in the role behind Romelu Lukaku (who just gets the nod on account of Zlatan Ibrahimovic being yet to score since his return) and while Jose Mourinho struggles with who to pick from Rashford and Martial, we have no such issue so we can pick them both.
