Paul Pogba responds to Man Utd’s win over Man City

Manchester United beat Manchester City 2-0 on Sunday to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his third win over Pep Guardiola in his first full season as manager at Old Trafford.

Goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay went unanswered as the home side moved to within three points of fourth-placed Chelsea, leaving the injured Paul Pogba feeling delighted.

The France international hasn’t featured since the 4-1 win over Newcastle on Boxing Day and underwent ankle surgery the following month, but he is expected to return to full training next week.

The 26-year-old responded to his team’s triumph on Instagram , with an image with text that reads: ‘Manchester is Red’.

Solskjaer was delighted with the three points that puts his side to within touching distance of Chelsea, as he mentioned after full-time.

“For me, it shows we're on the right track and improving,” said the Norwegian.

“We're Manchester United and we're looking to catch the teams in front of us.

“We feel we're improving all the time. We know we lack one, two or three players to be considered a title contender, as well as some experience.
