Man Utd’s incredible never-say-die attitude revealed with 21 points snatched from losing positions… DOUBLE anyone else

MANCHESTER UTD have racked up a remarkable 21 points from losing positions this season - more than double anyone else.

Paul Pogba's rocket completed another turnaround last night after an early setback at Fulham.

And it fired the Red Devils top of the Premier League again and continued their stunning away form.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have won eight and drawn two of their ten away games this season.

Their haul of 21 points from losing positions is more than double that of closest comeback rivals Liverpool, who have ten, while Leicester have collected eight.


Those two teams are the only sides Man Utd have failed to beat on the road in the league this season.

Burnley are the only team yet to pick up a single point this season from a losing position.

Pogba's strike sealed a 2-1 win at Fulham on Wednesday night and three more away points.

It was the second midweek in a row that Pogba scored a winner away from home after his strike at Burnley.

After the match, Old Trafford legend Rio Ferdinand described him as 'one of the best' when he's on form.

Ferdinand, 42, told BT Sport: "I think today he (Pogba) was brilliant, he did both sides well - defended well but created chances.

"The big difference is that he is playing quick, not dilly dallying on ball, the efficiency he is playing well is amazing.

"I don't think Ole completely trusts him in the centre of midfield with the pace that some sides counter with, so he plays him out of those area, but in this game they felt they would dominate and so he can allow him to do it.

"One of the best when he is in this form. He loves the game, (he) wants to showcase his talent.

"I saw Pogba grow up, I saw his talent first-hand, I think he is capable of playing in the midfield (alongside Fernandes), if he has the players around him he can do it."

Man Utd boss Solskjaer said: "We've always said Paul Pogba can do everything, he can play wide, in central midfield, create chances and score goals.

"He's really come on. The key was getting him match fit. Today he was in midfield and he was so committed and got tackles in as well as his goal."
