The French midfielder had been in and out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side due to lack of form injuries at the start of the season.

However, Pogba has since picked up his form and has been key helping the Red Devils move top of the Premier League standings.

“I've been feeling very good in myself, physically and mentally as well. I've been playing and when you're playing, you get your form," he told Sky Sports.

“It's a huge difference when you start one game and don't start another one, or if you don't start for a few games. Obviously, the team helped the players to be in good form, we've been playing very well. The players and the staff have been playing me, trusting me.

“I have to focus in myself and give my best. On the left, on the right, in the middle, striker, defender, anything. As long as I'm on the pitch I give my best and as much as I can do to help my team.

“I hate to be on the bench, I don't like it. It doesn't mean that other players don't deserve to be playing but for myself, I don't like it. I'm a winner, I just want to play football and help my team. When I'm on the bench and I don't come on, I feel like I can't help my team-mates so I feel bad and I don't like it.”
