Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted a possible change in the position of star player Paul Pogba during his post-match reaction after the Watford game.

Pogba and Manchester United struggled a great deal against Watford at home but they still had more than enough to secure the three points at stake.

French World Cup winner Pogba was largely anonymous as his Manchester United side were run ragged by the Abdoulaye Doucoure-led midfield.

After the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pointed out that tiredness could be one of the factors behind his star player’s performance against the Hornets having played two games for France during the international break.

The Norwegian football manager also pointed out that the sudden positional change could have affected him.

Solskjaer revealed that Pogba played in a deeper role for the French national team during the international break only for him to play further forward for Manchester United during the game against Watford.

The former Red Devils striker went on to hint that he’ll be more flexible with his position in the team.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial scored either side of the halftime interval to give Manchester United a 2-0 home lead over the Hornets until the aforementioned Doucoure pulled one back late in the game.

The 2-1 win over Watford was enough to lift Manchester United above rivals Arsenal and into fourth place though they have played one game more than the Gunners.
