Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Paul Pogba is getting back to his best as he played impressively in the game against Aston Villa.

Paul Pogba

has been criticized for much of his second spell with

Manchester United

, particularly during the time he was injured and ill.

But now with his impressive performance in the game against

Aston Villa

, the Red Devils manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

has come to believe that the France midfielder is getting back to his best.

“He’s getting better and better, fitter and fitter,” Solskjaer said. “He played well today. They’re a physical side. Paul’s one of these boys who can hold players off and get hold of the ball for us.”

He was also pleased with his team’s performance.

“You are always delighted with three points. The performance was good and we created chances. We had a good save at the end and Eric Bailly made a fantastic block so that probably saved two points for us,” he added.

“It was maybe a little too open and we wasted chances. We tried to play the Hollywood pass instead of securing the first one and using the space that was there.”

Solskjaer then talked about moving joint top of the league.

"Of course we are happy with what we are doing. We have shown we have improved a lot in a year. We lost to Arsenal away last New Year’s Day. We have improved immensely. We are getting fitter and fitter and stronger and stronger,” he said.

"These players have a great age. They are learning and are hungry to learn which is important. They come in every day with a hunger and desire to be the best on match day. They have been focused."
