UCL: Wenger gives verdict on Pogba, Fernandes’s performances as Man Utd beat Atalanta

Published

on

Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has given his verdict on Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes’s performances following Manchester United’s Champions League 3-2 win over Atalanta on Wednesday night.

Wenger said Pogba did very well against Atalanta, adding that the France international gave the visitors more power when he came off the bench in the second half during the encounter.

According to him, Fernandes, who had a poor first half, played well in the second half of the match.

Man United came from 2-0 down to beat the Serie A side at Old Trafford, thanks to three goals from Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Pogba entered the fray for McTominay in the 66th minute with United trailing 2-1 and Wenger was impressed by what he saw in the midfield trio of Fred, Bruno Fernandes and the France international.

Speaking as a pundit on beIN SPORTS, Wenger said: “Pogba, I thought, did well. Pogba gave them more power out from deep in midfield by creating more dangerous balls.

“And when Pogba came on, Fernandes became better. Fernandes had a poor first half, but in the second half, he came alive as well.”

Man United’s next match is against Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend.

EPL: Azpilicueta, Alonso reveal secrets behind Tuchel’s success at Chelsea

Chelsea duo, Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso have revealed the secrets behind manager Thomas Tuchel’s success at Stamford Bridge so far.

Azpilicueta and Alonso won the Champions League and UEFA Super Cup under Tuchel, who took over from Frank Lampard in January, this year.

The Spaniards are now chasing Chelsea’s first Premier League title since 2017.

Speaking on how Tuchel was able to turn things around so quickly for Chelsea in less than a year, Azipilicueta told Metro UK ahead of the Blues’ Premier League clash with Manchester United on Sunday, “There was not a lot of time, there were games every few days and there was good work in the meeting room, every day in training and every game trying to improve.

“Results bring confidence too, which was important. Of course, we knew that we could still fight for trophies and we were very happy to end the season in the way we did.”

Also speaking, Alonso added, “It was different from day one. I remember the manager’s first game against Wolves (a 0-0 draw). We had one session to prepare for that and you could already see the difference.

“I don’t know why but it was a good feeling and I think everyone felt the same way. We went on to get better and better until the end of the season.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea are currently on top of the Premier League with 29 points from 12 games ahead of the Man United clash.
