Draxler insists PSG can stop Man Utd star Pogba

Julian Draxler is confident PSG can stop Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba when the two sides face off in tonight's Champions League last-16 clash first leg at Old Trafford.

Pogba has scored eight goals and provided five assists in ten games since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as United manager.

But Draxler thinks his side will have no problem stopping the rangy Frenchman.

Asked if it was impossible to stop Pogba, Draxler said: "I've known Paul for a long time.

"I've played against him when we played Germany vs France. Sometimes we managed to stop him, we have managed to stop him on a few occasions.

"He's a great player, a top player with lots of qualities and the kind of player who excels in a top game in the Champions League.

"But we've got some good players, who I think will be capable of stopping him."
