Manchester United must start these three players together to finish in the top four

Manchester United are going to be confident about their chances of finishing the season strongly. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has enjoyed a mostly positive time in charge of the club after being appointed as the interim manager. He has impressed a lot of people with the way he has placed emphasis on free and attacking football.  This is something that was lacking under Jose Mourinho. As a result, he has been appointed on a permanent basis.

Paul Pogba - The Beginning Of The End?

The start to Manchester United’s season has been one of peaks and troughs. Defeats to Brighton and Tottenham marked the nadir for the Red Devils, but they soon bounced back with hard-earned wins at Burnley and Watford.
