Hugo Lloris warns Tottenham teammates about Paul Pogba ahead of Manchester United fixture

Hugo Lloris has warned his Tottenham teammates Paul Pogba will do everything he can to get Manchester United into the top four ahead of the two sides' meeting in North London.

United travel to Tottenham on Friday night for their first game Premier League game since March 8.

French midfelder Pogba is expected to feature in some capacity for United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium despite not having started a competitive game since last September.

Pogba's last senior appearance came as a half-time substitute on Boxing Day last year with the World Cup winner missing the first three months of 2020 through injury.

The 27-year-old has since returned to full fitness during and international teammate Lloris knows all about the threat he will pose next week.

“For Paul, it’s even a longer period than Harry (Kane) without playing," Lloris said. "But I know Paul and as soon as he gets on the field, he just wants to win.

“He’s going to make everything possible to be at his best level to help Manchester United to get the top four.

“About the title, it’s almost done, but for the fourth place, or the fifth place, there will be a big battle and for the relegation, it will be an even bigger battle. It’s the final sprint, you can win or lose everything.

“In March we were all in different form and unfortunately the Covid came from nowhere. No-one could have expected that.

“At the time we were not at our best. But it belongs to the past. We all wanted to finish the season and now we are getting close. All teams have recovered players from injuries. It’s been a very strange season. But it has to end.”

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …
