Can Donny van de Beek, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes play in the identical workforce? Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t suppose so simply but.
The Manchester United boss has opted in opposition to all-out assault for the journey to Brighton – which you’ll hear LIVE on talkSPORT as the primary of our three Premier League matches on Saturday.
Solskjaer’s males began the season terribly with a 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace final Saturday, with Van de Beek’s debut strike the one comfort.
The Dutchman didn’t begin that match, and he doesn’t begin at Brighton both.
Man United have made three modifications from the Palace defeat, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Nemanja Matic and Mason Greenwood coming in for Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Scott McTominay and Dan James.
David de Gea retains his place in aim, with Dean Henderson on the bench following his clear sheet within the 3-Zero win at Luton on Tuesday.
Purple Devils icon Bryan Robson not too long ago informed talkSPORT that Pogba, Van de Beek and Fernandes mustn’t function in the identical XI – however steered Pogba needs to be the person to make means.
He mentioned: “I’d in all probability go together with Fernandes, Matic and De Beek [in central midfield] and simply see the place they go together with it.
“We’ve received Scott McTominay, Fred who can try this holding function. Then you definitely’ve received Pogba.
“I believed Paul began off poor despite the fact that he completed the season actually robust. Possibly it’s only a matter of time for the lads to get going. However very last thing you need is taking part in catch as much as Liverpool.
“Pogba, Fernandes and Van de Beek, are you able to get the three of them within the workforce? Solely time will inform.”
