Tottenham boss Pochettino: Pogba threat just like Hazard

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says they can't obsess about Paul Pogba when facing Manchester United on Sunday.

Tottenham host Manchester United at Wembley Stadium this weekend as they look for their second big win of the week, having also beaten Chelsea in the first-leg of their League Cup semi-final.

"When you play in this Premier League, every weekend, or every three days as we've been playing in the last few months, always it's about the opponent have a few players that can make the difference," Pochettino said.

"Like last Tuesday it was Hazard, and now Pogba. Pogba is a very talented player, a great player of course. But it's not only Pogba or Hazard, there are different players around.

"Of course they are special players. Manchester United have a great squad with great players with a lot of quality. Of course we are not going to be only focused on Pogba, we need to be focused on the whole team not just one player."
