Manchester United’s stars are clearly in a light-hearted mood ahead of their crucial clash with Manchester City in the Carabao Cup with Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba making fun of each other on camera.
The two midfielders have started alongside each other on occasion this season and are competitors for the same midfield position.
However, the spirit of the squad is high and the players are obviously in a good mood, both publicly and privately.
Matic is one of the more senior players of the squad in what is a relatively young team and his experience will prove vital at crucial moments of the season.
Many fans feel his long-term successor is still needed and it will be interesting to see if United purchase a defensive-midfielder this transfer window or not.
🗣️ Pogba: "You think you look good?"
🗣️ Matic: "Better than you for sure!"

Even though Pogba and Matic are the ones arguing here, Juan Mata subsequently posted a poll on his Instagram asking fans to vote who has the better outfit.
It’s safe to say the Serbian midfielder won that battle with ease so perhaps the talented Frenchman should take some tips.
Pogba and Matic may play alongside each other in the match vs Manchester City as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may opt for a mix of steel and playmaking in his midfield.
