Paul Pogba has been started on the left of a midfield three for Manchester United against Chelsea today – finally landing a start in his preferred position.

The Daily Record recently claimed Pogba was not happy with how he was being used by Jose Mourinho, but it seems he’s won his battle over the Red Devils manager – for now.

The France international will now get a chance alongside both Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay – the latter of whom has really been competing with him for his place in midfield recently.

Fans will be relieved to see what they hope is the start of Pogba and Mourinho repairing their relationship, though it’s also a big ask from the Portuguese tactician.

It may well be that Mourinho is responding to Pogba and giving him this final chance to show what he can do in his supposed best position in this big and high-pressure game against Chelsea.

Either way, today’s match just got that bit more interesting, and fans are understandably excited to see Pogba get his big chance…
