Pogba has had some good performances in recent weeks but has lost his place at No. 10 to Bruno Fernandes.

midfielder Luke Chadwick believes that Paul Pogba knows that he no longer holds the No. 10 positions with Bruno Fernandes's presence.

The World Cup winner has not played in a fixed position for several months, and the club has not been able to get him to perform well due to the high cost of signing him. He used to play in position 10, but with Bruno Fernandes's arrival, his position changed, and he plays less in position 10. Chadwick also stressed that Pogba knew full well that he no longer held the No. 10 posts.

He told Caught Offside:

“Pogba’s done really well in the last few games, particularly the Aston Villa game.

“He’ll probably be annoyed at himself that he didn’t take a few chances in the box, but I think all the club’s top players are benefitting from more competition in the team.

“Pogba’s obviously realised that that number 10 position is no longer really his because Bruno Fernandes is going to start every game when he’s fit, and Fred and [Scott] McTominay have done well in those holding roles, [Nemanja] Matic is having a good influence as well.

“Pogba’s definitely put more of a shift in and I think that competition for places is bringing out the best in players, with that central midfield full of players pushing each other to get the best out of each other.

“At left-back as well you see Alex Telles and Luke Shaw pushing each other, and Eric Bailly as well looking the part while Victor Lindelof is out injured.

“[Edinson] Cavani’s come in and scored goals, so there’s certainly competition bringing the best out of everyone and Pogba’s top of the list after his performances in recent weeks.”
