Pogba scored the winner in United's 2-1 win over Fulham on Wednesday after Cavani had equalised, a victory that took them to the top of the table. "The last few years, United haven't been ready to challenge for the title, but now they've brought in players like Fernandes and Cavani - players with a winning mentality - that has helped massively," Derby County boss Rooney told British media.
