Some Manchester United players are of the opinion that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attacking plans are too dependent on how Paul Pogba performs in the midfield, and thus his absence in the midfield has left the gaffer suddenly void of any new ideas on how he should organise the midfield.

Paul Pogba has been out due to an ankle injury and other than the victory over Tottenham last night, Manchester United’s performance in the meantime has deteriorated to a new low.

Independent has reported that few Manchester United players believe Paul Pogba’s ability to make ‘right passes at pace’ in the midfield was crucial and central to Ole’s plan.

Tides seem to be changing for the Norwegian manager though as his players have finally started responding to his calls. Manchester United arguably put up their best performance against Tottenham on Wednesday night, with a Marcus Rashford brace giving them a 2-1 win at Old Trafford.

The report goes on to say that not all players think alike and most of the players have started believing in the manager and his tactics, and the change in player mentality was thus evident last night against Tottenham.

For the most part, the players are behind their manager and feel Solskjaer is the right man to take the club forward, which is the best news for the Red Devils.

In another news, Anthony Martial has been ruled out of crucial Manchester derby.
