Pogba told BBC Sport: “We deserved to lose. To be honest, we have been having these kind of games for a long time.
“We have not found the problem, conceding easy goals, stupid goals.
“We need to be more mature, play with more experience and arrogance in a good way. We need to find something, we need to change.
“We need to find the right mentality and the right tactic. Stick with it and resolve the problem.”
Mason Greenwood, 20, opened the scoring with a wonder goal from 25 yards cutting in from the right.
But Youri Tielemans, 24, levelled on the half hour mark before Caglar Soyuncu, 25, put Leicester in the lead on 78 minutes.
The returning Marcus Rashford, 23, levelled on the 82nd minute mark but just 60 seconds later Jamie Vardy, 34, restored his side’s lead.
Substitute Patson Daka, 23, then made sure of the three points for Leicester in added time.
It leaves United fifth in the table with Liverpool, Tottenham and champions City now to come.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “The four goals we conceded were very poor.
“When you concede goals like that in the way we did, we don’t deserve to continue that run.
We deserved to lose. To be honest, we have been having these kind of games for a long time.
“Definitely the performance was very below-par and not good enough.
“We got a very good goal with Mason and we were knocking on the door to get another one; sloppy play and we concede a goal.
“In the second half, it was end-to-end but they created more chances and conceding at set-pieces was disappointing.
“Conceding seconds after the equaliser shouldn’t happen. I picked the team; Harry showed no reaction.
“I hold my hand up if it doesn’t work out and sometimes it doesn’t. When you concede four, I probably made a couple of bad decisions.”
