Manchester United can win title next season, Paul Pogba key - Ryan Giggs
From ESPN - February 7, 2018

Ryan Giggs has said he believes Manchester United can win next season's Premier League title, with Paul Pogba a key part of the challenge.

Old Trafford legend Giggs said he would like to see Manchester United use Pogba on the left of a midfield three to boost the team's attacking power.

Giggs told Sky Sports he believed United had enough threat to reclaim the league crown.

Questions have been raised over their attacking intent in some games this season, but he said: "They have got pace, guile, goals, experience and make up a really top forward line.

"I would say the forward line is as good as Manchester City's, but the difference is the way of playing, with Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva behind consistently finding the front three for City.

"United have Paul Pogba who could potentially be as good as them, but then Nemanja Matic is more defensive, so it is just that creative area where City have got the upper hand."

Giggs said he believed one of France midfielder Pogba's best games for United had come in the win over Everton last month, in which he played on the left of a midfield trio.

"He was on the left of Matic -- in a similar position to the one he played at Juventus -- and Ander Herrera was on the right," Giggs said.

"I think that position where he's on the left of a midfield three is where he's at his best. He's a brilliant crosser of the ball and I do not think he's as effective when he's having to do more defensive work in central areas.
