Manchester United are more willing and better prepared to attack opponents under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer than Jose Mourinho, according to midfielder Paul Pogba .
The French World Cup winner ’ s own return to form is in keeping with a rejuvenated United as a whole since the Norwegian replaced the sacked Mourinho last month .

Pogba , who was dropped by Mourinho for his final three Premier League games in charge , has scored four goals and provided four assists as Solskjaer has become the first United manager to win all of his first six games.

“ The way we are playing we have more possession of the ball . We know more where to attack and where to go . We have more of a pattern of play and more of a structure , ” Pogba told Sky Sports News .

“ That makes it easier for everyone . So I would not say it is only myself . Yes , I have scored a few goals and had a few assists but it is all the team . ”

Pogba was the provider for Marcus Rashford ’ s winner in a 1 – 0 victory at Tottenham last weekend that allowed United to close to within six points of the Premier League top four , having been 11 points adrift when Mourinho departed on December 18 .

However , United were also indebted to goalkeeper David de Gea , who made 11 second – half saves at Wembley .

“ It was great for us . It was great to show we are coming back and getting closer to the top , ” Pogba said . “ We needed points and we showed that we could beat a big team .

“ I wouldn ’ t say ( we had ) luck because you create your own luck . David did his job and I thank him for that . ”
