GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS
United hero Paul Pogba bade an emotional farewell to Timothy Fosu-Mensah as the new Premier League leaders prepare for Sunday’s showdown with Liverpool.
Holland defender Fosu-Mensah, 23, has joined Bayer Leverkusen for £1.8million.
And Pogba, whose Tuesday winner at Burnley put United three points clear, admits he will miss his close friend.
He said: “My brother from another mother. Blessings to you bro.
“I don’t watch a lot of Germany, but now, we are going to miss you too much. Who is going to make me laugh?
“But I’m happy for you, too much.”
United have a staggering stat in their favour as they bid to win the Prem for the first time since 2013.
Eight of the last ten champions have been top after the same 17-game period.
In that past decade only Liverpool have not lifted the title after leading at this stage in – 2013-14 and 2018-19.
Meanwhile, Moises Caicedo is now tipped for Brighton after United reportedly ended their pursuit of the Ecuador and Independiente de Valle midfielder, 19.
