Man United prepare to battle Southampton tonight as we look at chances of Pogba linking up with his favorite midfielder in the center
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men travel to Old Trafford tonight in clash with Man United but it’s believed the Saints will face a problem in the center when Pogba and his favorite man is matched together.
Prior the game, United saw their chance regaining the top table dashed by Arsenal who managed to hold them to a draw in a game Solskjaer decided Pogba goes at the flank.
It’s perceived as too much of a respect to have done that against a side as Arsenal although the French man afterwards was pulled back to the center.
Scott McTominay was subbed off early after suffering a knock with this warranting the emergence of Anthony Martial, pushing Pogba back to the midfield.
A midfield which initially had McTominay and Fred, now was seen with Pogba and the Brazilian linking up.
The stars haven’t actually been a regular mix in the midfield but their partnership against Fulham was great.
Both men had links to goals from Edinson Cavani’s opener to Pogba curling home the winning goal.
According to MEN, United could actually line up in 4-4-2 formation as this would let them exploit Southampton harder with the presence of Fred and Pogba in the center.
A win tonight will keep the side running fast for the Premier League title challenge with Manchester City leading the table with 1 point gap.
