Gary Neville has claimed that in spite of his form, Paul Pogba remains the best midfielder at Manchester United. 

The Frenchman has struggled of late, as his supposed failure to function on the same wavelength as his fellow teammates has led Jose Mourinho to drop the talisman to the bench.

Post the 2-2 draw with Southampton, Pogba has started the subsequent Premier League games against Arsenal and Fulham from the bench, whilst only managing to make a cameo against the Gunners.

His recent drop in the pecking order has also made him a doubt for the Red Devils’ upcoming weekend league clash against Liverpool.

Despite that fact, however, Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville believes the 2018 World Cup winner remains the best midfielder at the Old Trafford outfit.

While naming his combined XI from the Liverpool and Manchester United squads, the decorated right-back fielded Pogba in the middle of the park, claiming that the 25-year-old was arguably the most talented superstar amongst both teams’ current crop of midfielders.

Speaking on Monday Night Football, Neville stated (via Metro): “Without much conviction, I’ve gone with Paul Pogba holding in midfield, with Georginio Wijnaldum and Naby Keita either side.

“Perhaps I was clutching at straws, but I looked at it as an opportunity to put a United player in there, as I think Pogba is United’s best central midfield player and the most talented at the two clubs.”
