Solskjaer Set To Bench Pogba For Man Utd’s PL Return Against Spurs

Bench Pogba Against Spurs
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly not ready for the potential partnership between Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in midfield, meaning the Frenchman will start on the substitutes bench against Tottenham on Friday.

And after Bruno hit the ground running following his £68m move from Sporting Lisbon in January, many United fans are excited to see their two-star midfielders pair up – but that won’t be the partnership from the beginning on Friday, according to The Athletic.

The French World Cup winner is understood to have ‘trained well since lockdown began’ but nonetheless, Solskjaer’s side is said to be working on a starting XI without Pogba.

Instead, Solskjaer could turn to a regular this season in Fred, as well as Scott McTominay or Nemanja Matic in the centre of the park to play alongside playmaker Fernandes.

The Red Devils return with a crucial match against top-four rivals Tottenham and former manager Jose Mourinho on Friday night.

United are currently fifth in the Premier League table, three points behind Chelsea in fourth.
