This season has seen a flying start for the Mancunian red as they came into this match with immense self-belief following two back to back victories. And with a strong display by Pogba during the home game against Southampton, it felt like nothing could stop the Red Devils at the KC stadium.
But it was a night of extreme hardwork for the Red Devils who looked to get nothing more than a point even after 28 shots and a good amount of possession. Hull were solid and looked like a team that would only let off a single point for Mourinho’s men. But Marcus Rashford had other ideas as he scored during the dying moments of the game courtesy some beautiful play by the skipper Wayne Rooney to make the Devils relive Fergie time.
Here are the talking points from the showdown at the KC.
1. Pogba looked sluggish:
After a dream 2nd debut, it was pitched Pogba would destroy Premier League newbies Hull. But Pogba looked rather contained by the Hull midfield. His flicks and tricks that earned him the title of the most expensive player in the world were not falling through as he ended up playing quite a few square passes. He had a great attempt with a free kick inside the last 10 mins only to see it drift wide.
While he may possess the talent to be one of the best players in the world, it is clear that the Frenchman needs some time to adapt back to the Premier League. United face Manchester City in their next fixture after the international break and Jose Mourinho will need his midfield to be in top form if they are to beat Pep Guardiola’s men.
