Chelsea

held them to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.

Pogba

admitted his mistake that led to team’s defeat against Arsenal. He tripped

Hector Bellerin

Criticism against Red Devils has been countless since then, but the scrutiny against Pogba goes back further having arguably failed to enjoy a single standout match this term. However

Solskjaer

has defend him.

  "Paul knows with that exact incident he could have done better," Solskjaer said ahead of Wednesday's Champions League trip to

Istanbul Basaksehir

.

"Every player is frustrated, himself too, after a defeat. We need consistency from every one of our players. 

"Paul has been going through a difficult period with injury last season, with coronavirus this season, so I think we have seen plenty of positives recently and hopefully it will continue." 

After winning over

Paris Saint-Germain

2-1 and brilliant 5-0 demolition of

Leipzig

, Manchester heat to Istunbul to play against Baskasehir.
