‘Pogba can look lackadaisical but he’s a genius’ – Man Utd need consistency from £89m man, says Pallister – football news

Paul Pogba can “look a little bit lackadaisical”, admits Gary Pallister, but the Frenchman is considered to be a “genius” with match-winning quality for Manchester United.

Ever since completing an £89 million ($116m) return to Old Trafford in the summer of 2016, the enigmatic talent has seen his every move dissected in minute detail.

His on-field performances have often been deemed to fall below the standard expected of him, while his antics away from the pitch have generated as much debate as those on it.

Such inconsistency has left many of those at Old Trafford frustrated, including manager Jose Mourinho, but Pogba has shown flashes of the brilliance which has made him a global star and  World Cup winner.

Pallister is now looking for more of that in 2018-19, telling 888sport: “At times he can look a little bit lackadaisical with the ball but at other times he can light up the whole stadium.

“The latter is what people at Old Trafford want to see: I mean that ball he played for Fred against Wolves was a moment of absolute genius.

“He saw the pass, he executed it, and it was right out of the top drawer and he has the ability to do that god knows how many times in a game.

“When we’re out of possession people look at Paul and think he could give a little bit more for the team. And that comes from being an £89m player and being talked about as one of the best players in the world.”

Alexis Sanchez Manchester United 2018-19

While more is being demanded of Pogba, the same can be said for Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean arrived at United amid much fanfare in January, but the former Arsenal and Barcelona star has struggled for form as Mourinho endeavours to find the right role for him.

Pallister added of another man proven at the very highest level: “I was absolutely buzzing when United signed him because his performances at Arsenal showed he was a world-class talent.

“But for whatever reason it has not been working out and I’m sure Alexis will be one of the first to say he has not been producing the form we expected of him.

“Maybe he doesn’t suit the manager’s style of play. Maybe he hasn’t been hitting it off with the forwards he’s playing alongside.

“But I think he will turn it around and he will score goals and excite the crowd. It’s about getting the balance right and then we’ll see the best of him.”

Pogba: Struggling Sanchez will deliver at Man United – football news

Paul Pogba is confident under-fire Alexis Sanchez will come good at Manchester United amid his team-mate’s struggles to impress.

Sanchez was an unused substitute in the Red Devils’ midweek Champions League clash but came back into the team over Anthony Martial despite the latter scoring against Young Boys.

However, Sanchez was substituted and heavily scrutinised following United’s disappointing 1-1 draw at home to promoted Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday.

Expectations were high after Sanchez swapped Arsenal for rivals United in January but the former Barcelona forward has failed to justify the huge outlay at Old Trafford, where the Chilean has only managed three goals and none this season.

But United star Pogba, who has voiced his desire for more attacking football from the club,  is adamant the 29-year-old will overcome his woes in Manchester.

“What you have to know about Alexis is he is a hard worker,” Pogba said. “He trains very well, he always tries to help the team, talks with the team and everything. He will get used to it.

“When you play a long time with another team and you play different football in that other team you have some kind of adaptation that you have to have.

Article continues below

“It’s not that he is playing bad. We know that Alexis Sanchez can bring a lot and I’m sure he will. I’m sure he will.

“But he’s not playing bad and he keeps being positive, so that’s the good thing we have to think about.”

United are back in action against Derby County in the EFL Cup on Tuesday before travelling to West Ham for Saturday’s Premier League clash.

Sanchez to start for Man United as Martial is dropped, confirms Mourinho – football news

Alexis Sanchez will start in place of Anthony Martial for Manchester United against Wolves on Saturday, manager Jose Mourinho confirmed.

Martial scored in United’s 3-0 win over Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday, but the France international will have to settle for a place on the bench against Wolves.

Mourinho confirmed Sanchez – left on the bench in Bern and without a goal in four games this season – would return on Saturday.

“Sanchez plays tomorrow,” the Portuguese tactician told UK newspapers on Friday.

“Because Martial played 90 minutes [against Young Boys] and Sanchez played zero.”

United have claimed three straight wins after a slow start to the season, but still sit eighth in the Premier League.

Mourinho believes his team will be better this campaign than they were last, when they finished a distant second to Manchester City.

“I am not saying we are going to have more points than last season because last season we collected a very acceptable level of points,” he said.

“I think we are going to be a better team. We are going to play better than we did but I think it’s going to be a very difficult season. Not just for us, also for the others.”

‘Alexis Sanchez is still a top-class player’ – Man Utd star will come good, says Robson – football news

Alexis Sanchez remains a “top-class player” in the eyes of Manchester United legend Bryan Robson, with the Chilean being backed to rediscover his best form.

Having been acquired by the Red Devils in January, the 29-year-old forward has struggled to produce his best.

He has managed just three goals in 21 appearances, with his account yet to be opened in the 2018-19 campaign.

Robson is, however, convinced that a summer without World Cup duty will benefit the former Arsenal and Barcelona star, with United needing to be patient as a proven performer gets fully up to speed – with Chile having agreed to offer him rest him again during the current international break.

The former Old Trafford captain said after Manchester was named the Greatest Sporting City 2018: “Sanchez is a top-class player. But we haven’t seen the best of him at Manchester United so far.

“But I’m sure he’ll get to the top of his game. This summer was the first summer he’s had off for several years, and that should do him good.

“Sometimes, though, when you have a free summer and a fair few weeks off, it can take a little bit more time to come back really sharp and to get into the season.

“These first few games of the season are maybe just what he needs to sharpen him up and then hopefully we’ll see the best of him for the rest of the season.”

Robson admits it is vital that Sanchez does find his spark, with Jose Mourinho requiring his other attacking talents to help Romelu Lukaku carry the goal-scoring burden if a Premier League title challenge is to be pieced together.

Romelu Lukaku Alexis Sanchez Manchester United

The ex-England international added: “I think the main thing for Lukaku is to keep getting into those goal-scoring positions.

“You go through periods where you will score a lot of goals and a striker will go through a barren patch where he doesn’t score for a few games.

“But with Rom, he just needs to keep getting into those positions that he managed at the weekend and he will get goals.

“The one thing that’s guaranteed, as long as he stays free of injury – he will get up to the 30-goal mark for United again this season.

“It’s also a matter of Sanchez, [Jesse] Lingard, [Anthony] Martial and [Marcus] Rashford all getting into double figures this season in terms of goals, if we’re really going to challenge for the title.

“Lingard did well in terms of goals last season, getting into double figures, and it can’t all fall on Lukaku.

“There are going to be periods in the season when he goes through that barren spell and doesn’t score.

“When that happens, there have to be other people there who can score goals for United if we’re going to be challenging for trophies.”

Man Utd & Mourinho emphatically answer critics with Lukaku-led victory over Burnley – football news

After back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Tottenham, there were plenty of debates as to what Manchester United needed. A new manager? A new direction within the boardroom? A renewed vigour from their players?

One thing that couldn’t be questioned was their need to bounce back with a win at Burnley on Sunday, and boy did Jose Mourinho’s side deliver.

The action-packed 2-0 victory at Turf Moor was a showcase of many of the best traits of Manchester United. They took the game to their opponents, got themselves into a winning position and threatened to score plenty more than their final tally. And even after going down to 10 men after Marcus Rashford’s second-half red card they continued to make chances while also showing the guts necessary to deal with Burnley’s desperate attacks at the other end.

It couldn’t have been scripted better by Mourinho no matter how hard he tried. The manager had got himself worked up in the week, referring time and again to his previous honours in a bit to build a siege mentality between himself and the Manchester United supporters.

There was even a pre-match plane protest by a group of United fans, with the words ‘Ed Woodward: A specialist in failure!’ being displayed in the skies as the debate over the executive vice-chair’s relationship with the manager intensifies.

But it was the performance on the pitch that was always going to speak loudest, and here United provided the perfect answer to the critics.

They started with purpose and desire, even if their play didn’t always have the same slick feel about it which had been evident in the first half at Old Trafford on Monday night. Jesse Lingard had a trio of opportunities early on, while Alexis Sanchez regularly got into good crossing positions and both Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw were getting forward at will.

United eventually got the goal they had threatened when Sanchez waited and waited on the ball before delivering an inch-perfect cross for Romelu Lukaku to head home. It was a much-needed goal for a striker whose first-half miss against Spurs had been pinpointed by many as a key moment in the embarrassing defeat.

Manchester United celebrate

He would have another before half-time, sweeping home from inside the six-yard box after Jesse Lingard’s initial shot had been partially blocked. The 2-0 lead was a more than fair reflection on proceedings as a jaded Burnley barely laid a glove on United.

The visitors were equally dominant to begin the second half and should have had a third when substitute Marcus Rashford was fouled by Aaron Lennon in the Burnley area. But Paul Pogba’s penalty was saved by Joe Hart and within two minutes Rashford’s afternoon would be at an end.

The England attacker responded to Phil Bardsley’s niggle in a challenge on the bye-line by planted his head on the ex-United defender. After showing Bardsley a yellow card, Jonathan Moss produced a red for Rashford just 10 minutes after he had replaced Sanchez.

Article continues below

Even down to 10 men United were on top. Lukaku was somehow being denied a hat-trick by Ben Mee and Pogba dragged a shot just across goal, underlining even further how superior Mourinho’s side were.

As the final whistle approached the chant of “Mourinho’s red and white army” could be heard long and loud from the away end, just as it had in the Stretford End on Monday. It carried much cheerier tones this time around though, and nobody will be more relieved than the manager himself.

His side did the business for him in a game he could ill-afford to lose.

Mourinho: Alexis to use international break to help lift Man Utd – football news

Jose Mourinho says Alexis Sanchez will use the upcoming international break to help lift Manchester United’s season.

The Red Devils have made a stuttering start to the new Premier League season, losing back-to-back games against Brighton and Tottenham.

Alexis has also endured early-season struggles, having missed United’s 3-2 defeat against Brighton through injury.

However, the forward came off the bench against Tottenham and will not play any part in Chile’s double-header against Japan and South Korea, in a major boost to United.

And Mourinho says the 29-year-old is planning to use the two-week international break to improve his fitness ahead of a busy schedule for United.

Mourinho told the club’s official website: “He’s [Alexis] not going to the national team for these two friendlies in Japan and South Korea, which is good news for us because after that we play Watford and then immediately play [in the] Champions League [away at Young Boys].

“He’s committed, he’s focused, he works hard. I believe that he will improve.

“I didn’t ask [Alexis], I never ask players not to go [on international duty] and I never contact national teams for players not to go.

“It’s a personal thing between him and the national manager.

“At the same time, coming [back] from injury, he feels that for him it’s a much-needed two weeks in spite of his conditions to play against Burnley.

“He feels that, after that [the game at Turf Moor], he needs two weeks to put himself in good shape and, because of the friendly matches in Asia, they made the decision for his good and, in consequence our good, for him not to go.”

United take on Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday as Mourinho’s men look to answer recent criticism with a positive result at Turf Moor.
