Paul Pogba has hit out at Jose Mourinhos tactics following Manchester Uniteds 1-1 draw with Wolves.

The Red Devils have won only three of their opening six matches in the Premier League and were held at home to newly-promoted Wolves after Joao Moutinho cancelled out Freds opener.

While Jose Mourinho focused on the attitude of his players in the aftermath of the disappointment at Old Trafford, Pogba believes Uniteds cautious game plan was what hurt them most.

David De Gea was Uniteds standout player, denying Wolves with several top-class saves, while Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez struggled in attack.

We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves, the Frenchman said.

When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack. Thats Old Trafford. We are here to attack.

I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake.

Maybe the attitude should be better and we should play better because, again, we are at Old Trafford and we should just attack and press like we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal last season.

When we play like this its easier for us.

Asked why United failed to pose more of a threat versus Nuno Espirito Santos men, Pogba replied: I cant tell you because Im a player – its not me.

Im not the manager, I cannot say that, but obviously we should show more option of playing, but I cannot say that because Im a player.

Thats my way of thinking – we should move better, we should move more.

Mourinho questioned the desire of his players after the defeat and Pogba believes Uniteds Champions League tie in midweek may have had an impact.

Yeah, its true that maybe we should have showed more hunger in some parts, the midfielder said.

Maybe as well we felt a bit of fatigue because we played Champions League. Maybe hes right, I dont know.

We didnt lose, but for me we should have won. We are at home, they are three points that we should get.

I dont know how many games weve had at home – three – and weve got only four points. Its not enough.

Weve played six games in the Premier League, its not that we should get worried, but we should obviously get closer – get closer and closer (to the leaders). Its better for us if we get close.
