Paul Pogba has revealed the debilitating effect that contracting Covid-19 had on his fitness.

The Manchester United midfielder tested positive for coronavirus in August, forcing him out of the France squad and into quarantine.

Pogba’s form clearly suffered in the early part of the season, culminating in United’s dismal 6-1 home defeat by Tottenham in which he conceded a penalty.

The 27-year-old had started just one Premier League match since that Old Trafford debacle, but he was thrust back into the line-up at West Ham on Saturday and responded with a stunning goal and a fine all-round display in their 3-1 win.
