Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not ruling out the possibility of bringing Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek into the same starting XI this season, the Manchester United boss excited by the talent at his disposal.
The Red Devils are blessed with having world-class options throughout their midfield department, with the biggest issue their manager’s faces is how to keep them all happy.
It’s a headache that Solskjaer seeks to embrace, with the Norwegian realizing that he can be more adventurous at times.
He had to find a way to fit Pogba and Fernandes by his side regularly, allowing a World Cup winner and a Portuguese talisman to pull the strings for those around them.
Solskjaer has stepped away from that selection as a whole, with a more solid system that includes two holding options, but is ready to experiment when the opportunity presents itself.
The United boss told Sky Sports about his playing culture: “Over a long season, they may have a series of games together. We may have a system that works for them all together.
” Nemanja, Scott and Fred, and the balance they can give you. It’s hard to see a team without at least one of them, because of that balance. Everyone will play their part – it’s up to them to play when they get the chance. ”
Before Fernandes and company, United added the extensive experience of Edinson Cavani to the service hit.
Solskjaer expects the prolific Uruguayan to be a perfect mentor for Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as the Red Devils look to unleash their considerable potential in the final third.
“We have an exceptional pace at the break and when we have to drop deep and defend we know we can use it,” Solskjaer added.
“But we want to be in the front. With Bruno arriving, we manage to break down teams more often.
“After that, we added Donny, with his movement, his intelligence around the box, and his spatial awareness, which is great for us, then there’s Edinson, who can be in the surface, and Alex with his crossing. we’re working on the style, trying to put together a team of players that gives us more ways to play.
”What’s exciting is that these players can improve too. Most of them are still in a phase of their careers where they can develop a lot. ”
United, who have yet to drop a point away from home this season, will return to the Premier League on Saturday in a trip to West Ham.
