Manchester United star Paul Pogba believes Mason Greenwood is the best finisher at the club. However, he does think Edinson Cavani is the best when it comes to scoring goals via headers. All three players are expected to be involved when the Red Devils lock horns with Liverpool today.
Both Cavani and Greenwood have recently returned to form.
The former has scored five goals from his last five outings, including a brilliant brace against Roma in midweek.
And Greenwood has found the net five times from his last eight appearances, showing his immense potential in the process.
Pogba has now been asked about his team-mates and revealed Greenwood was the best finisher when it comes to scoring goals with his feet, while Cavani is better in the air.
“The best finisher, I think it’s Mason [Greenwood],” he said. “Yeah, Mason, I would say.

“And Edi [Cavani]. Yeah, Mason with the feet and Edi with his head.”
Pogba also claimed he had the best fashion sense, adding on that: “I think you already know.
“Yeah, it’s just different, you know. Sometimes people don’t understand it and are a bit surprised with the colours I put in.
”I’m just being myself, just being different. Maybe I’m not the best but, for myself, I am the best and that is all that matters.”
In Pogba’s opinion, there’s nobody nicer on the planet than Juan Mata.

“Juan Mata is the nicest man, I would say, on the earth,” he said.
“Such a nice person, such a gentleman. He is the gentleman of the world!”
And Eric Bailly has been outed as the messiest person at the club, with Pogba saying: “Ah yes, okay. The most tidy is Donny, it’s Donny van de Beek.
“The least tidy is Eric Bailly.”
Ahead of United’s clash with Liverpool today, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted his side are making big progress as they hunt a first Premier League title since 2013.
“We’ve improved definitely,” he said.
“We’re winning tight games – we’ve won them more than last year and every game in the Premier League is tight.
“Say there are five even games and you just tip them and you get the momentum and win four of them and draw one instead of losing four of them and drawing one of them, they’re tight moments.
“We’ve said it all through the season – you have to earn the points every game. It’s a big, big difference between a team in momentum and swimming against the tide.”
Solskjaer thinks United are fitter than ever before, too.
“It’s not the end result, but it’s the result of hard work on the training ground and discipline,” he said.
“The coaches have been fantastic and fitness is such an important part of being a footballer.
“We know they’ve got talent, but the fitter they are the more you can do. And the stronger you feel in games, then a lot of games will be decided in the last 20 minutes or something and we’ve really shown this year what we’ve built over the last few seasons.”
United have faced Liverpool twice so far this season.
They drew 0-0 in the league when they met at Anfield back in January.
And they won 3-2 at Old Trafford in their FA Cup showdown that same month, with Bruno Fernandes scoring the winner.
