Paul Pogba has urged Manchester United to become more attacking when playing at Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old believes his team can become a threat if they start to attack – with other sides fearing them.

United have now claimed just four points from a possible nine this season at home.

Defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, Saturday’s draw with Wolves and an opening day win over Leicester City has been a far from ideal start for the Red Devils.

Pogba said:

“We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves.

“When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack. That’s Old Trafford. We are here to attack.

“I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake.”

Joao Moutinho’s first goal for Wolves secured the newly promoted side a well-earned point at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils took the lead through Fred following a sensational assist from Paul Pogba.

However, the visitors stifled United’s attack after their equaliser causing for another disappointing outing at the Theater of Dreams.
