Paul Pogba reacts to thrilling Spurs win reveals secret to Ronaldo’s form

In his post-match interview with the BBC, Paul Pogba said: “It was a beautiful game and a beautiful reaction from us.

“We hurt them [Tottenham] at the right times and [Cristiano] Ronaldo did what he does best.

“He [Ronaldo] has never been a problem. You have the best striker in history in our team, he cannot be a problem. Today the performance from him and all the team was very brilliant.

“I think that’s all we needed – a reaction. We scored beautiful goals. Even when we conceded a goal, we came back and scored again. The mentality was there again today.”

The Manchester United midfielder continued: “Everybody knows Cristiano – there’s no need to talk about him. That’s what he does.

“He didn’t play in the last game, but he comes back and scores three goals. Everybody’s happy.

“It was good today. You can hear the fans – they were pushing us and feeling it. I think today was a very good performance as a team and a very good reaction from the City game.

“We kept believing. In the second half we didn’t get the nice passing, and the movement I think wasn’t there.

“We gave them a bit of confidence, that’s why they scored. But we got a corner and scored the winning goal.”

Ronaldo’s hat-trick was all it took for United to bag a much-needed three points against Spurs.

Harry Maguire’s own goal made it 2-2 and looked like another draw was on the cards. However, the 37-year-old forward never gave up and added another one to become the highest goalscorer in history.
