'Pogba Isn't Standard, He Is World Class'

Following his match-saving cameo in Manchester United's recent draw with Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur, Paul Pogba has been praised as a player who is different from the rest.

Man Utd Legend Slams 'Overrated' De Gea After Error

Last Friday, the Frenchman was introduced in the second half with Spurs in the lead, and came up with a special piece of skill that resulted in Eric Dier taking him down the box.

With Bruno Fernandes stepped up to convert the spot-kick, Pogba also produced some other exciting moments during the encounter, including a long-range half-volleyed pass directly into Marcus Rashford's path.

It was a cameo that had United supporters licking their lips, especially as they got to see Pogba and Fernandes play together for the first time. Speaking about the 27-year-old's impact from the bench, Michael Owen has since claimed that the France star is different from the average midfielder.

"These players are the difference. That is the difference between just a Premier League player and someone that we all talk about, all the time," he told Premier League Productions.

"That (Pogba winning a penalty) is just a moment of brilliance when the game is hard, when Tottenham get 11 men behind the ball.

"You need something out of the ordinary, and Paul Pogba has got that about him. The little shimmy and that's it.

"If it wasn't for him, then they would have got beaten 1-0. It's brilliant play. That's the difference between standard Premier League players and world-class players."

Pogba is expected to start on Wednesday night, when the Red Devils host Sheffield United in their second match since the 2019/20 Premier League campaign resumed.
