Paul Pogba wants Manchester United to continue replicating the fast-paced style that saw them over the line at West Ham.

The Red Devils again came from behind the pick up the three points at the London Stadium.

It was Pogba who scored the equaliser as they ran out 3-1 winners with Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford also getting on the scoresheet.

And the Frenchman singled out Rashford’s goal as the epitome of what they are trying to do.

“We played. We play how we love to play football,” Pogba told MUTV after the win.

“Remember against Leipzig, when we played, when we scored the goals in the second half it was the same. It was two touch, two touch, one touch.

“The goal of Rashy was one-touch football. It was beautiful. That’s what we are, we have the quality to do that, and we have to do it from the start.

“There are so many chances, we conceded, it was hard for us in the first half and we showed character in the second half and that’s what we have to remember.”

United have now fallen behind in each of their last five away league games before coming back to win.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seen his side see off BrightonNewcastleEvertonSouthampton and the Hammers.

But after the game Rashford, who was called upon at half-time having been left on the bench, called on his United team-mates to start better in games.

“We need to stop doing that (letting teams score first),” he told Sky Sports.

“If we keep more clean sheets we will definitely win more games.

“It is good that we showed spirit, but ideally we don’t want to be conceding.”

United’s win closed them to within two points of Tottenham who play Arsenal today.
