Pogba’s future at Manchester United is pretty much up in the air. His current deal with the club runs out in the summer and he has not agreed a contract extension yet. As a result, it is very possible that he could walk out as a free agent in the not too distant future.
That has not appeared to have an effect on his recent performances though. The French midfielder has been absolutely superb since returning to the pitch from his injury and appears to be thriving in Ralf Rangnick’s style of football.
Leeds United are exactly the type of team against whom Pogba can thrive. They leave a lot of spaces open at the back, which the French midfield maestro can exploit by using his impressive range of passing.
When the two sides had met in the opening game of the Premier League season, Pogba had produced a staggering four assists. Thus, we have already seen what kind of an impact he can have on this fixture. Will he be able to repeat that this weekend?
David de Gea
While Ronaldo and Pogba might thrive due to Leeds United’s weakness at the back, one cannot overlook the immense quality that Marcelo Bielsa’s side have going forward and on their day, they can score a bunch of goals past any team.
On the other hand, it is no secret that Manchester United’s defence is not the best, although they have shown signs of improvement since the arrival of Rangnick as interim manager.
Thus, this could be an opportunity for De Gea to pull off some impressive saves, as he has been doing throughout the course of this season.
The Spaniard has been a shining light between the posts for Manchester United throughout this campaign and looks very much back to his best right now, which is fortunate for the Red Devils. Otherwise, their season would have been going a lot worse.
