Paul Merson criticises Paul Pogba performance against Chelsea and says he must up his game

Paul Merson has criticised the performance of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in Sunday?s victory over Chelsea despite the Frenchman laying on two assists in a comprehensive win.
United started the new season in emphatic fashion, beating Chelsea 4-0, with Pogba playing a key role in the demolition; he set up Marcus Rashford for the third goal with a brilliant pass and then threaded a pass for Daniel James to open his United account.
However, Chelsea controlled the first hour of the match before being ripped apart and Merson felt Pogba could have done more to affect the match while it was still in the balance.
Merson says Pogba ‘wasn’t all that’ against Chelsea despite his pair of assists (Picture: Getty) ?Everybody was raving about Pogba. I don’t know which game I was watching, but I can’t remember him being involved in the first 60 or so minutes. He didn’t take control of the game,? Merson told Sky Sports.
?When they went 2-0 up, United were like the Harlem Globetrotters, with everybody rolling their foot over the ball and Chelsea capitulated. I didn’t think his performance was great; he made a few flicks, and gave the ball away a bit.
