Plenty of Liverpool fans have been reacting on Twitter after Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba said in an interview originally published by ESPN that the Merseyside outfit deserve to be where they are and to win the Premier League title.
Jurgen Klopp’s men made it 18 straight top-flight victories as they came from behind to beat West Ham United 3-2 at Anfield on Monday night, and now only require four more victories between now and the end of the season to guarantee their first-ever title of the Premier League era.
Incredibly, with 11 games still to play of the 2019/20 campaign, they sit 38 points above Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils side in the table, showing the gulf in class between the two sides.
Nevertheless and despite the fact that he has perhaps underwhelmed in general following his return to Old Trafford in 2016, there are those Liverpool supporters who would still sign the 2018 World Cup winner.
Come to Anfield @paulpogba mate

Other individuals believe that the comments are actually part of a “come-and-get-me-plea” to Red boss Jurgen Klopp, who of course is currently enjoying a hugely successful period with the Merseyside club.
At 26 years of age, it would certainly be interesting to see Pogba in this current Liverpool midfield, and whether the German boss could get the midfielder performing on a consistent basis.

Others are imagining that exact scenario, and obviously their comments suggest that he would perform much better under Klopp than he has under Solskjaer and Jose Mourinho previously.
If the Liverpool manager could get him reproducing the form that saw the Frenchman score 16 goals in 47 outings last season, that would certainly be the case.
I know it’ll never happen
But imagine Pogba under Klopp 😭 https://t.co/7t8a37uxgM
