"I play a bit further forward and I've got the security behind me", Pogba told reporters at Wembley after helping United to a 1-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday.
The Spaniard proved once again that he is the man for the big occasion as he managed to keep a clean-sheet in the 1-0 victory. United were deeper in the second half, but to play against that system it was awesome to create 11 chances in the second half.
The Red Devils showed moments of quality in the second half but Spurs tested out the full extent of their defence and David responded in fantastic fashion.
"To be honest, when we played there I thought they were very good and I can not judge or talk about another period under Mourinho", he said.
United took all three points from Wembley following Marcus Rashford's first-half goal, but Spurs passed up a series of chances after the break, with David de Gea forced to make 11 saves in the visiting goal.
"I am so pleased and I'm proud", Pochettino told Sky Sports. We all enjoyed playing together today [Sunday]. We dominated the game and we created more chances than them.
With the in-form South Korean Son Heung-min playing his last match before heading off to the Asia Cup, the last thing Pochettino needed was the sight of Kane hobbling off the pitch after being clattered by United's Phil Jones late on.
Pochettino also appeared to hint that his side may need reinforcements after Harry Kane limped off with an injury at the end of the game.
The Spanish worldwide was outstanding as he made a number of sensational saves to deny Spurs and thwart the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli during the second half as United held on to secure a 1-0 win. "I wasn't happy with the performance after we won 3-0 there".
