Paul Pogba sent Manchester United to the top of the Premier League with a superb performance in their 1-0 win over Burnley on Tuesday night.
And now the Red Devils star is ready to do the same when they face second-placed Liverpool in a top-of-the-table clash on Sunday.
Pogba’s stunning 71st-minute deflected volley was enough to help United to the top of the league for the first time in January since Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013.
Not only did he score the winner to earn United their ninth win in their last 11 outings, but according to Squawka the 27-year-old had the most touches (104), won the most duels (12), the most aerial duels (5), made the most clearances (5) and also won the most fouls (4), while creating the joint most (2) chances.
Turning his attention to fierce rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, Pogba says: “It will be a beautiful game for everyone.
“It’s a big game coming up so let’s get ready for it.”
A win over the Reds will see United open up a six-point gap on the champs.
And coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows his team has to be at its best if they want to do so.
He adds: “Of course we know we’re going to the champions, they’ve had an unbelievable three-and-a-half seasons so we know that’s going to be a difficult game for us but we’re ready for it.
“I think we couldn’t have asked for a better time to play them, because we’re in good shape, in good form.”
