Speaking of his opponents in his post-match press conference, the Manchester United manager said: "Wolves, by the way they faced the game, I think they deserve it". That's Old Trafford. We're here to attack.

But United star Pogba, who has voiced his desire for more attacking football from the club , is adamant the 29-year-old will overcome his woes in Manchester. "That was our mistake".

United are seventh in the standings, eight points behind leaders Liverpool after six matches.

Paul Pogba has accused Jose Mourinho of holding Manchester United back with his negative tactics. "We should move more, yeah".

"I'm not the manager, I can not, like, say that but ... obviously we should show more option of playing but I can not say that because I'm a player", Pogba said.

'I don't know how many games we've had at home - three - and we've got only four points. It's not enough. We've played six games in the Premier League, it's not that we should get anxious, but we should obviously get closer.

They were held 1-1 by Wolves on Saturday, a result that might easily have been worse were it not for the excellence of goalkeeper David De Gea, having been thrashed 3-0 by Spurs in the previous home fixture.
