Liverpool’s record 5-0 win at Man Utd: Solskjaer at ‘rock bottom’

Paul Pogba should be the first casualty of any fallout at Manchester United.

I’m a big fan of him as player but I said when he came in that everything always has to be about him.

The coloured hair, all the other distractions, are the last thing you need when things aren’t going well.

He’s a magnet for publicity and he’s just too highly visible all the time.

It’s always about him and that very quickly becomes a distraction you could well do without.

When you’re looking for stability, the last thing you need is Pogba at the centre of it all, getting red carded 15 minutes after coming on.

Across the city, Pep Guardiola must have been shaking his head at what was going on.

Just look at his star players. They’ve got the likes of Kevin de Bruyne who no one knows anything about outside of what he can do with a football.

No one knows where he lives or what he does away from playing. He keeps his head down and concentrates on what he gets paid for. Bernardo Silva is the same and City legend David Silva was cut from the same cloth.

If Manchester United are serious about changing things then the first item on the agenda should be to sell Pogba to PSG Real Madrid or whoever will have him.

Is Paul Pogba the main problem at Man Utd? Let us know your thoughts below

There are two superstars at United – Cristiano Ronaldo and Pogba – and I sure as hell know which one I’d be pointing towards the exit door.

Pobga doesn’t fit into United’s system of play and he doesn’t fit in with what they are about – a team ethic. He needs to go.

Arsenal beat Aston Villa not win the Champions League

Arsenal had an excellent win over Villa but the way it was greeted you’d have thought they had won the Champions League and were top of the table.

Mikel Arteta has been getting the kind of results he so desperately needed in recent weeks.

The victory over Villa took their unbeaten stretch to six but even so, I just can’t see them finishing in the Champions League positions despite all the fuss.

To be honest I can’t see that happening in the next two or three seasons and there’s the problem.

Because, bearing that in mind, if I was Pep Guardiola or Thomas Tuchel I’d be keeping a very careful eye on Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe.

Unless Arsenal can provide that Champions League football you’d think they’d see their future elsewhere.

I fully expect both of them to be among the next batch of £75-80m transfers and Arsenal to become a feeder club for rivals above them.
