Paul Pogba: Liverpool deserve Premier League title

Paul Pogba believes that Manchester United arch-rivals Liverpool deserve to win the Premier League title as they have been above every team this season.

Liverpool extended their lead to 22 points with a 3-2 win over West Ham United on Monday night and Pogba feels the Jurgen Klopp side deserve to be where they are despite them not wanting their rivals to win the title.

Speaking to ESPN, Pogba said: "They are so way ahead of everyone else. They have not lost a single game yet this season in the league. They already have one hand on the Premier League trophy.

"As a Manchester United player and with the rivalry between us, we don't want them to win the title. We don't want anyone else to win apart from us, but as a football lover and a respectful player to the opposition team, I have to say that they deserve to be where they are today.

"They have been even better than last season when they won the Champions League and the season before when they lost the final to Real Madrid."

Pogba has not played for Manchester United since Boxing Day but he has since returned to training with the player targeting a comeback next month.
