Paul Pogba has been hailed as the "best midfielder in the world" by Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the Frenchman returned from a long injury lay-off.

The World Cup winner was in action for United for the first time since late September as a substitute in their chastening 2-0 defeat at Watford Sunday.

He could be in the starting team against Newcastle United Thursday as Solskjaer desperately seeks the creativity the team needs to break down stubborn opposition defences.

Pogba, who had only played twice since the end of August due to an ankle injury, was introduced Sunday with United already trailing by two goals and went close to scoring during a late attacking flurry from the visitor.

Solskjaer said he was looking for a reaction from his players against Newcastle after United again failed to turn dominance of possession into a positive result at Watford.

United are struggling in eighth place in the Premier League, seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea despite recent morale-boosting wins against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.

Solskjaer admitted progress had been slower than expected but said he was focused on developing a team that could dominate and break sides down.
