Paul Pogba insists he’s eyeing revenge in Manchester United’s clash against Chelsea in the Premier League at Old Trafford on April 16.
Jose Mourinho‘s side sit in fifth place in the Premier League, four points off fourth-placed Manchester City and must crack on as they aim to get back into the Champions League.
The Portugues boss believes there is no added emotion facing former club Chelsea, but following two defeats this season, 1-0 in the FA Cup and 4-0 back in October, Pogba is fired up for the fixture.
“Well, this season Chelsea have beaten us two times and, obviously, we don’t want that to happen a third time,” Pogba said. “We want to win.
“Obviously they are ahead of us, they’re playing for the title and, for them, it’s important to win this game. For us as well, because we’re playing for the top four as well, so it’s going to be a game that’s really important for each team.
“We have to be focused and get ready and show them revenge, it’s revenge for us. So, let’s be positive about it and hopefully go and win this game.
“They have a great team and everybody knows that.
“When you’re playing in the Premier League, you have to have a bit of luck as well but you create the luck.
“They have a manager who pushes them and they have players who want to show the world that Chelsea are still alive and, last year, that didn’t happen.
“But you never know, that’s what the beautiful thing in the Premier League.
“You never know what’s going to happen. They’ve done good this season.”
United have gone unbeaten in 21 league matches since the October’s Stamford Bridge clash, but 10 draws have left them further behind than they should be at this point.
The side needs to get rolling now as the Europa League continues to look like our main way back into the Champions League.
