Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba insists that his side's "luck will change" if they continue performing as they have in recent home games.

Paul Pogba has joked that Manchester United's inability to pick up three points at home in recent weeks is starting to make him think that his side may be cursed.

The Red Devils have largely dominated each of their last four games at Old Trafford but have failed to win any of them, culminating in Sunday's 1-1 stalemate with West Ham United.

Not since 1980 have United racked up four home league draws in succession but, despite being 11 points adrift of Premier League leaders Chelsea, Pogba is refusing to panic and says that it is a matter of time before results finally turn around.

"We're going to start to think we're cursed," he told SFR Sport. "It doesn't matter which team comes here, we dominate them, be it Arsenal or West Ham.

"Our luck will change at one time or another, and it's then that we'll have to take it. I'm still confident because we create chances. It'll come. I'm confident in my team. We just have to pay attention to the small details.

"We conceded a daft goal [against West Ham], against Arsenal it was also the small details. I'm still confident, it'll come right. We are dropping silly points, but it'll come right."

Man United turn attention to EFL Cup action on Wednesday evening, with a rematch of sorts against West Ham United in the quarter-finals.
