Paul Pogba is still thinking about the last time Manchester United played Tottenham as the two sides prepare to meet again on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs hammered United 3-0 at Old Trafford in August thanks to a Harry Kane opener in the second half and two goals from Lucas Moura.

The result was Tottenham’s third win from their first three games of the season, while United were left with just one win in the same period of time.

Pogba played the full 90 minutes at Old Trafford on that Monday night in August and the experience is still bothering him.

‘I remember the first game [against Spurs] when we lost 3-0 at home,’ Pogba told Manchester United’s official website. ‘I’ve still got it in my mind. We don’t want to let this happen again.

‘It’s Tottenham, you know. They’re a very good team, they’re in the top four, so it’s going to be a big game. It’s going to be a tough one.

‘We need points and they need them as well. We’ll see – it’s going to be a tough one.’

Pogba is in fine form since the departure of Jose Mourinho and won Manchester United’s Player of the Month award for December.

The Red Devils are sixth in the Premier League, nine points off Chelsea in fourth, and the Frenchman admits that there is still a lot of work to do to make ground on the Champions League places.

‘We’re still far [away] but it’s good that people forget about us a bit,’ he continued.

‘We’re just coming our way, staying focused and trying to do our things – that’s what we need to do.’

Spurs host United at Wembley at 4.30pm on Sunday with the last eight games between the sides resulting in four wins for each team.
