  • Man United will proceed to ship targets with Pogba and Fernandes in identical line-up
  • Neither is sweet sufficient defensively to play collectively in a three-man midfield

Published: | Updated:

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has an enormous resolution to make as a result of Manchester United will proceed to ship targets if he retains on naming Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in the identical line-up.

Excellent inventive gamers as they’re, neither is sweet sufficient defensively to play collectively in a three-man midfield.

That is actually the case towards any of the Big Six and on Saturday they had been repeatedly caught out towards Brighton

Paul Pogba has change into a defensive drawback for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United

United will proceed to ship targets with each Pogba and Fernandes in the identical line-up

Their deficiencies put Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw below an unlimited quantity of strain as a result of they had been consistently caught between following the Brighton wing-backs and the huge forwards.

Compare that to Liverpool, the place Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson can bomb ahead every time they like due to the savvy of Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum protecting from midfield. 

It shouldn’t be laziness on Bruno or Pogba’s half, it’s simply a facet of their recreation that defensively they’re reactive reasonably than proactive. They simply don’t spot or sense hazard rapidly sufficient. By the time they realise they should get again, it’s too late.

Pogba’s problem on Aaron Connolly within the space was overturned however he was nonetheless uncovered

Bruno gave away a penalty and let Solly March go for Brighton’s second objective.

Pogba’s problem on Aaron Connolly within the space was overturned by VAR, appropriately, however he was nonetheless behind play and liable to be uncovered.

I believe it’s vital that United have signed Donny van de Beek from Ajax. He has acquired extra vitality and is extra of a real box-to-box participant than Pogba or Bruno. 

I believe as soon as he’s totally built-in into the United set-up, he begins with a extra orthodox holding midfield participant and that leaves one spot left for the 2 glamour gamers, until you might be up towards a weaker group at Old Trafford with out a lot attacking risk.

Over the previous few months, I’ve to say Bruno has been extra influential in an attacking sense than Pogba, so I have no idea the place that leaves the Frenchman, who has been substituted simply over an hour into each United’s Premier League video games.

Of course, there’s a caveat that Pogba examined constructive for Covid within the build-up to the season so possibly he’s behind others by way of health. When he’s 100 per cent, we have now seen him win the World Cup alongside N’Golo Kante.

Right now, he appears to be like a good distance off and Solskjaer can have loads of pondering to do as a result of United have conceded 5 targets in whole towards Crystal Palace and Brighton.

They had been lucky to win on Saturday, provided that Brighton saved hitting the woodwork and the profitable penalty got here after the ultimate whistle had blown.
