Manchester United legend and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has pointed out the biggest problem Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has at Manchester United, and according to him, it’s our midfield.

Both Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay we out for the ill-fated clash against Sheffield United due to injuries, however, Neville states that midfield issue has to be taken care of irrespective of their absences.

“The midfield’s just a problem for United full stop, let’s be clear about it,” the former United defender told Sky Sports.

“Even with Scott McTominay in it, it’s a problem. They haven’t strengthened in that area, obviously, Pogba’s injured.

“It’s a problem for them and it’s just not good enough, the midfield just doesn’t have good enough quality. They need a striker, they need two midfield players, they need a left-back – they need five or six signings.

“They can’t do that until January and obviously the summer but the midfield will not go away as a problem for Manchester United just because of an injury.

“It’s a problem full stop – it needs strengthening.”

Solskjaer’s side go to Astana in the Europa League on Thursday afternoon.
