Peter Schmeichel has urged Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to start Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba together in their match against Spurs.

Many have been questioning whether Pogba and Fernandes can play in the same team together, and Solskjaer has been trying out the pair in practice matches ahead of the restart.

A report in The Athletic on Monday claimed, however, that Pogba is ‘unlikely to start’ against Spurs when Man Utd play their first match of the Premier League restart on Friday.

But Schmeichel wants to see the pair play together when the Red Devils travel to north London at the end of the week.

“Well the thing about Manchester United is, we always say we want the best players in the world,” Schmeichel told the Daily Express.

“And if you have the best players in the world you play them, of course you play them.

“I would play them straight away. Why not?”

When Schmeichel was asked who they would play alongside, he replied: “I think Fred and McTominay they’re important players.

“I think Ole has to have a really long meeting about this with himself. I think it’s great, really great, we have options now.

“I would play them, play them together. There are many options, you can play them in No 10 together, give them the freedom for someone like Marcus [Rashford].

“What the team hasn’t had for a long time is competition for places.

“And it seems with his signing, Martial finding form, Marcus being fantastic, Daniel James having a little breather, the competition for the forward places is there.”
