Manchester United's Paul Pogba calls for more attacking football at Old Trafford

MANCHESTER, England -- Paul Pogba questioned why Manchester United can not muster more attacking football at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho's team were held to a 1-1 draw by Wolves on Saturday and afterwards Pogba said they had not been able to create enough chances to win the game.

"We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves," he said. "When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack. That's Old Trafford. We are here to attack.

"I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake."

- Is frustration the new norm for Manchester United?
- Player ratings: Alexis Sanchez 4/10 as United stumble

Asked what was stopping them from attacking, Pogba said: "I can't tell you because I'm a player. It's not me."

Pogba was instrumental in Fred's opener against Wolves and when pushed about what was limiting United going forward, the 25-year-old World Cup winner reluctantly suggested it was down to a lack of pace and movement up front -- both hallmarks of Sir Alex Ferguson's best teams.

"I'm not the manager, I cannot say but obviously we should show more option of playing but I cannot say because I'm a player," he said.

"That's my way of thinking -- we should move better, we should move more, yeah."

Alexis Sanchez was one of the United's players who drew most criticism for his performance against Wolves.

He was substituted after 63 minutes -- the third game in a row he has been replaced -- leaving his record since arriving at Old Trafford in January at just three goals in 23 games.

Pogba, though, defended the 29-year-old and said he is still adapting after leaving Arsenal and that the best is yet to come.

"What you have to know about Alexis is he is a hard worker," Pogba said. "He trains very well, he always tries to help the team, talks with the team and everything. He will get used to it.

"When you play a long time with another team and you play different football in that other team you have some kind of adaptation that you have to have.

"It's not that he is playing bad. We know that Alexis Sanchez can bring a lot and I'm sure he will.

"I'm sure he will. But he's not playing bad and he keeps being positive, you know, so that's the good thing we have to think about."
