Paul Pogba insisted that Manchester United deserved to lose to Leicester City, and admitted that "something has to change" within the team.

Ole Gunnar Solskajer's side suffered a chaotic collapse at the King Power Stadium as the Foxes beat them 4-2 in a thrilling clash on Saturday evening.

Jamie Vardy and Patson Daka scored late goals to condemn United to a first away league defeat since January 2020. Speaking after the game, Pogba admitted that the Red Devils "deserved to lose" the game.

“To be honest, we’ve been having those kind of games for a long time,” Pogba said. "We haven’t found the problem. To concede goals, easy goals, stupid goals… the fans are going to push and put pressure on us.

“We need to be more mature I think. We need to play with more experience and arrogance, in a good way. We have to take the ball and play our football. Now we have to find what the key to this change is. I think we deserved to lose today.”

He also admitted that a shift in the team's mindset is needed if they are to challenge Manchester City, Chelsea, and Liverpool for the Premier League title this season.

“It’s all of us. We need to find something,” Pogba added. “We need to change something. We really don’t know. It’s frustrating because it’s something we don’t understand, but we have to find out very fast to compete.

“If you want to win the title, it’s those games you have to win – even though they’re very hard, even though we’re playing away. We need to find the right mentality, the right tactic, to win those games. We will have time to think about it, and we have to stick together and find the problem.”
