Under LVG and Moyes he was regularly starting but under Mourinho he never will be. He is the new Obi Mikel and a new cm will be brought in so that will decrease his chances of starting even more. If mourinho rated him that highly it wouldn’t have taken an ordinary injury for Pogba for him to start a game in the league. Mourinho doesn’t want him in his starting eleven, Moyes and LVG did. The idea he would have halved the gap is total nonsense, if he has been injured all season we would be no worse off. If he had been fit probably be in similar position maybe slightly better or worse off.
