Too often against Wolves, Pogba would pick up the ball and be confronted with a plethora of static United bodies.
Sir Alex Ferguson probably didn't get the result he would have liked on his return to Old Trafford following a brain haemorrhage in May earlier this year.
United manager Jose Mourinho had boasted of his team's defensive improvements following a strong start to September in which his side had won all three of their games in the league and Europe.
"I'm not the manager, I can not, like, say that but ... obviously we should show more option of playing but I can not say that because I'm a player", Pogba said. They started better and were more aggressive, had more intent and I don't know why but they were more motivated.
I could say we were exhausted, Champions League, very bad pitch, the body suffers the different impact on an artificial rather than actual grass, not coming home after the match. They play like I like to play which is like the World Cup final.
"The attitude made the difference".
Jose Mourinho impressed by Wolves ahead of Manchester United clash
Jose Mourinho has said three straight wins has not changed his opinion that Manchester United are in for a tough season. Football is a little bit like this.
We talked about how this run of four matches being played at home from the next five was supposed to be a good thing, but Manchester United continued with their inconsistent performances.
"For me, it is hard to explain that". We come home with a good spirit, we come home let's say in peace because we recover.
"(Against Wolves), of course, we had a better result - one point is better than zero. "Fellaini played 20, 25 minutes, Fred played 60 minutes, Valencia also didn't play". "An attitude. And again one team was coming to play the game of their lives, the other to relax".
The hosts were on top after the break, but Raul Jimenez's clever lay-off set up Moutinho for what was a deserved equaliser for the visitors.
"I saw a very good game of football", Nuno told Sky Sports.
This is all you have to know about how unsustainable United's performances are if they are to actually try and do something special this season.
Mourinho said that his team has the talent but they are not able to cross the line owing to a mental situation.
