Manchester United are entering a crucial stage of their season. United fans are curious to see Pogba and Bruno pair together.
Manchester United is one of the few clubs that have a very important few months coming ahead. The club has it all to contend for. There is the fight for the top 4 spots and the Champions League involvement.
Apart from that United are still in the FA Cup and also the UEFA Europa League. Ole and his men have a lot on their plate to deal with. There is an emphasis on securing a Champions League spot. But securing at least one trophy is also important for the club.
Although in that respect the 3-month break was perfectly timed for United. Some of their key players like Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford were set to miss crucial games. But due to the break, they have had time to recover and get back to full fitness.
As of now, United have all of their players available in the squad. And Ole will have to make important decisions as to who will start and who will come off the bench. The midfield set up for the club is quite exciting.
Mctominay has been in excellent form this season, Fred too is having his best season with United. And since Bruno had arrived he has lifted the atmosphere at the Old Trafford.
Bruno Fernandes has played 5 games in the Premier League and has won 5 players of the match awards. He also has 2 goals and 3 assists. Bruno pairing up with Pogba is the dream of every United fan. But it might be the case that the fans have to wait a little bit more.
Pogba might be coming off the bench initially for the Red Devils
Ole Gunner Solskjaer has a decision to make. Whether to start Pogba or not. The Frenchman is a player of class and status. He is very comfortable playing the ball in midfield.
But Ole as a coach is also very concerned about the team’s chemistry playing together. Pogba hasn’t played since his last appearance in December. And although there has been enough time period for training, real game situations are just different.
According to The Athletic, the Frenchmen might be left out of the first team for the match against Tottenham. A half time substitution might make sense considering the fact that he is returning from an injury.
Ole himself known as the Super Sub for Sir Alex, knows the importance of good substitutions in the game. Not to say that Pogba will be coming off the Bench in all the matches.
But to start with we might see that to be the case. United could have up to 16 matches if they were to go ahead in all competitions. And Pogba will have heavy game time in all key fixtures going ahead.
But will Ole tweak the system to adjust him in the first game still remains a doubt? United legend Gary Neville also gave his say upon the matter. And he believes that the manager will find a system to get the best out of the whole squad.
Also in recent news, Tottenham played a friendly match with Norwich. After the game one of the players was found positive for the virus. Following that there is also the possibility that United’s first match can be postponed.
