Paul Scholes warns Manchester United that Champions League qualification is not assured

He is just strolling through games.

Manchester United were held to their third straight draw on the trot as Southampton forced the Red Devils to a stalemate in a Premier League clash at Old Trafford that was overshadowed by a nasty head injury suffered by United frontman Romelu Lukaku early on.

"We drew again. Three draws, we have to win, something has to change and we have to change to win".

Scholes has suggested that Mourinho may be deploying Pogba in the wrong position which, as a result, is preventing the player from making the most of his abilities.

"It was [insipid] yeah", the former midfielder told BT Sport.

Pogba has underperformed at United so far, in comparison to his high transfer fee, according to Scholes, who is still waiting for Juventus' version of the midfielder to turn up.

"He was all over the pitch, he was tackling, he was fighting, he was sprinting to people, he was scoring goals from 25 yards out". I wonder whether he is training properly.

Everton are next for United at Goodison Park and Pogba has demanded more from his side. These players need to realise their strengths, he's so strong and quick, you can't get near him.

"The underperforming is carrying on, carrying on, carrying on and the manager has to take responsibility for that".

He does not look like a player who will win you games and that is what you pay £90m for.

It leaves them realistically surrendering the title to their city rivals, and having lost to Bristol City in the Carabao Cup, only with the FA Cup and Champions League to play for before 2017 is out. He explains if Pogba is pushed forward and freed of playmaking and defensive duties, we should see the world-class player his potential promises he can be. "They gave the crowd absolutely nothing and it was dead here today".
