Manchester United star, Paul Pogba, has compared Edinson Cavani to Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood following the Red Devils’ Premier League 2-1 victory over Fulham on Wednesday night.
Pogba believes Martial, Rashford and Greenwood don’t have the same quality as Cavani after the Uruguay striker scored in Man United’s win against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Cavani capitalised on an error from Alphonse Areola to equalize, before Pogba grabbed all three points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side with a brilliant left-foot finish from outside the box.
“Everybody knows that Edi [Cavani] is a top-class striker and there are a few strikers like this in the world, and we had the chance to have one,” Pogba told MUTV after the game.
“We know the hardest goals are those goals. We have talented players – Anthony Martial, Rashy in front, even Mason [Greenwood], that they can shoot from outside and stuff – but they don’t have this, the experience of Edi, and they don’t have the same quality of Edi as well.
“So I think we complete each other with the players we have in front, and Edi can obviously show his class like he did today.
“Those goals that we needed, at the right time, he’s always there at the right time and the right moment to help the team to win.”
The result against Fulham means Man United are now on top of the Premier League table with 40 points from 19 matches.
