Pogba told ESPN: "They are so way ahead of everyone else. They have not lost a single game yet this season in the league. They already have one hand on the Premier League trophy.
"As a Manchester United player and with the rivalry between us, we don't want them to win the title. We don't want anyone else to win apart from us, but as a football lover and a respectful player to opposition team, I have to say that they deserve to be where they are today.
"They have been even better than last season when they won the Champions League and the season before when they lost the final to Real Madrid."
Pogba has not played for Manchester United since Boxing Day, with his future at Old Trafford the subject of much speculation.
