Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has urged manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Paul Pogba in favour of new signing Donny van de Beek.

The Frenchman has started our Premier League games against Crystal Palace and Brighton this season, but has so far failed to put in top performances in games.

Former United player Robson believes it’s time for the World cup winner to warm the bench while Dutchman Donny van de Beek gets his chance to impress.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Bryan Robson said: “I would probably go with Bruno Fernandes, Nemanja Matic and Donny van de Beek [in central midfield] and just see where they go with it.

“We’ve got Scott McTominay, Fred who can do that holding role. Then you’ve got Paul Pogba. I thought Paul started [the new campaign] off poor even though he finished the [2019/20] season really strong.

“Maybe it is just a matter of time for the lads to get going. But the last thing you want is playing catch up to Liverpool. Pogba, Fernandes and Van de Beek, can you get the three of them in the team? Only time will tell.”
