Can the Souness favourite dazzle for a second week running? If he has even a quarter of the joy we can still make good money.
The criticism of Paul Pogba is that he doesn’t fulfil his immense talent on a regular basis. That’s perhaps hard to deny, but he can be a streaky player, so I have few doubts that we will see more gold from him this afternoon - as he is clearly in the mood.
Much has been made of the Frenchman’s four assists against Leeds on opening weekend, and rightly so. Paddy Power are offering a boosted 3/1 on him having just one against Southampton, which seems too good to resist.
United beat these opponents 9-0 in February with Pogba left on the bench. It won’t be that horrific for the Saints again, but the form of Greenwood, Fernandes, plus the possible return of Cavani mean that if the 28-year-old keeps creating chances, we should expect them to be converted.
