The former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder seems to be questioning the potential for a Pogba-Fernandes partnership in the games that matter most, which is bound to give Solskjaer a major headache.
The two players are among United’s biggest names, but it’s fair to say they didn’t work well as a partnership in the defeat to Arsenal at the weekend, and they may be too similar to combine effectively.
Dropping either one of them in a big game, however, would be a huge call from Solskjaer, and if results don’t go his way it will no doubt be a decision that is picked apart by fans and pundits afterwards.
