Is Paul Pogba the problem for Manchester United?

Jose Mourinho GETTY Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho has denied rumours he's fallen out with Paul Pogba

Manchester United will always "struggle" with Ashley Young in their defence, according to Roy Keane.

Pogba was largely ineffective in United's midfield - an area they usually dominate but today failed to control.

Chris Smalling should be braced for further mocking by football fans after he took tactical advice from Manchester United teammate Anthony Martial.

If the final result of Newcastle United 1-0 Manchester United wasn't a surprise in itself, considering the passion that the Geordies have for games with the Red Devils, then the performance and ultimate substitution of French midfield superstar Paul Pogba was. However, once again, it didn't work out and Pogba was substituted soon after Matt Ritchie scored what proved to be the winning goal.

Pogba wants to play on the left of a midfield three, giving him licence to drive forward and attack.

However, Keane reckons the formation is beside the point, and Pogba should be able to play well in a two-man midfield or in a three-man midfield.

The former Manchester United skipper had a pop at Pogba last season for the way he and his brother, Florentin, acted during the Europa League clash between United and Saint-Etienne - the killer line being, "they've spoke more tonight than I have to any of my brothers in the last five years".

"Pogba has been asked to do two roles and I don't think you can, unless you've got [N'Golo] Kante and [Eden] Hazard and you roll them up into one, and create that player who will probably cost you around £500m", Higginbotham told Sky Sports.

'The two centre-halves need to do better.

According to Arsenal Mania, the Gunners are favourites to sign Chris after Jose reportedly considered him to be a dispensable player.
