I agree. I think Pogba being on the left, gives us a bit more balance. Rashford, Martial and Greenwood tend to stay to high, so when Bruno is also high up the pitch trying to find spaces to pick up the ball, our central midfielders are given the responsibility of getting the ball to one of those 4 players, which requires some off the ball sharpness and good touches ( to keep the ball) and good consistent dribbling ability/passing ability, to move the ball forward quickly or accurately, none of which any of our midfield options can consistently provide, even Pogba.I wish we get to see Pogba, Rashford and Greenwood as the front three in our next game as I believe it’s our best forward line at the moment. If not best then definitely most watchable.
I believe it is what we will see also, if Ole goes for Pogba in the middle again it’s risky against Liverpool, he must go wide.
Pogba playing on that flank gives us a player with the propensity to come into midfield...this is perfect when Bruno is trying to find space higher up the pitch, and provides our defence and center midfielder and easier passing option coming deeper.
