Owen Hagreaves reveals two Manchester United players Solskjaer doesn’t trust

Manchester United legend Owen Hargreaves has claimed manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t trust defensive duo Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.

The club have so far endured a difficult start to the season and are currently ninth in the Premier League table.

Former United midfielder Hagreaves feels the Norwegian’s use of defensive-minded midfielders Fred and Scott McTominay shows he can not rely on the defensive partnership of Maguire and Lindelof.

He told BT Sport: “[Bruno] Fernandes has been one of the most impactful signings ever at Manchester United.

“[Donny van de Beek is a smart player and I think he’s done well playing deeper, I think he can do that because he’s unselfish and doesn’t get caught in possession and plays quick.

“But I still think [Paul] Pogba has to play. You’ve got to find a way to get Pogba into the team.

“How do you do that with Donny and Fernandes and Martial and Cavani all in there now?

“It’s difficult for Solskjaer and I think he’s playing two sixes because he doesn’t trust the two centre backs.

“We saw what happened against Spurs [when Manchester United lost 6-1] , Ole’s not going to do that anymore.”
