Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba urges his teammates to be more attacking in home games following his side's 1-1 draw with Wolves at Old Trafford.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has urged his side to "attack, attack, attack" during their home matches following Saturday's 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford.

United have picked up just one point and scored only one goal in their last two home outings, whereas away from home they have won their last three games and scored seven goals across all competitions.

Manager Jose Mourinho's perceived negative tactics have been criticised on a number of occasions since his arrival at Old Trafford, and Pogba believes that the team are at their best when they are able to cut loose.

"When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack. That's Old Trafford," Pogba told reporters.

"We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves. We are here to attack. I think teams are scared when they see Manchester 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 it's easier for us."

United will now turn their attention to Tuesday's EFL Cup tie with Derby County.
