The World Cup winner continued his fine start to the season by supplying another assist for Manchester United over the weekend.

Paul Pogba insists he would rather win the Premier League than pursue individual records following his stellar start to the season.

After bagging four assists in Manchester United’s 5-1 thrashing of Leeds, Pogba set up Mason Greenwood on Sunday to help the club salvage a 1-1 draw at Southampton.

The point kept United within touching distance of leaders, while Pogba increased his tally to five assists for the season. He is the first Premier League player to accomplish this feat in a club’s first two games of a single campaign. His efforts also helped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side extend their unbeaten run on the road to a record 27 games.

“It’s always great, but I prefer to win the league and not have the record,” Pogba told MUTV.

“It’s good, it’s positive. Next time what we want to have a record of is winning away – that would be the best and not draw when we know we can win these games, the same [with a] clean sheet. We learn from that, stay positive and we go again.”

Pogba will hope to keep his solid start going next Sunday when United take a trip to Molineux to face Wolves in their next Premier League outing.
