EPL Boss: You Can't Stop Pogba!

A Premier League manager, whose team recently went up against Manchester United, has admitted that sometimes French superstar Paul Pogba is seemingly impossible to stop.

The 10 Most Lethal Trios In Europe This Season So Far

The midfielder has been very influential in United's turn of form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in the club's hot seat, contributing to 11 goals in his past nine matches for United.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel was full of praise for his countryman in a recent interview, crediting the 25-year-old for the Red Devils' recent resurgence.

"He's completely behind this. He's become the team's leader, playing higher up the pitch in a sort of No. 10 role," the French tactician told Le Parisien.

"He's decisive with his passing and his goals. He drags the team behind him. He was huge in the first games played with the new coach – in the physical dimension, in his ability to break lines, to carry the ball forward, to weigh into the penalty area, to score.

"You can't man-mark him. He's powerful, can sniff out the right pass in the box, drives forward quickly. You can't really stop him. It's a near-impossible physical duel. It's a challenge to try and read what he's about to do. He has great vision.

"With one or two touches, he can give amazing assists, especially over the defence. He sees everything quickly and is technically on point.

"Some players are so productive that you play around them. That's what's happening at Manchester United."

'Messi Is Tougher To Play Against Than CR7'

Pogba has scored 11 goals and assisted a further nine strikes in 29 matches for the Red Devils so far this season.
