Manchester United should use Paul Pogba in a midfield three in order to get the best out of him, according to Danny Higginbotham.

Pogba will return to the starting line-up at Newcastle after being dropped for the win over Huddersfield following his substitution in the Spurs game that prompted heavy criticism for his defensive indiscipline and a debate on how he should be played.

"It means that you have to defend well in this box, you must have the physical condition, the desire, the intensity, the stamina to go to the other box and in the other box you have to be good - scoring, creating, heading and so on and so on". He works well, he's a good professional. Then with so many opinions, and we are in a world of opinions, people can get confused.

The ex-Man United players had suggested that when Pogba is played in a midfield two with Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingered operating as the number ten, it has a negative impact on his overall game.

"I think he brings so much to United in terms of the way they play - especially when they are attacking", says Higginbotham. I think the stadium is really nice, I like the atmosphere.

The accompanying caption to the message-driven image accused Parker of "exploiting" the tragedy as a crass attempt at image rehab. Cattrall made it clear she doesn't want Parker's sympathy, however, responding with a scathing statement on Instagram .

"Benitez knows how to get points, so I think it is going to be hard". I think this country produced a lot of unbelievable box-to-box players and I had the pleasure to coach some of them. I think now it looks like we are going to a different concept of box-to-box.

"I think that position where he's on the left of a midfield three is where he's at his best".

"Box-to-box is not my words, of course".

But the Portuguese is making a focused effort to change tack at a time of refereeing scrutiny, such as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp's anger towards officials after last weekend's frenetic 2-2 draw with Tottenham. "A midfield player with more potential than Paul is hard to find because Paul has everything". The midfielder was replaced by 21-year-old Scott McTominay, who played the full 90 minutes, while Pogba was a second-half substitute.

"I think they are a good team, I think they had a very good transfer window with Kenedy and (Islam) Slimani - they are two players that I know very well and can really improve their team". There is no confusion between me and Paul.
