Gary Neville has outlined how he would fit Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes into the same Manchester United team.

Pogba was again among the substitutes as United drew 0-0 with Chelsea in Saturday's Premier League clash at Old Trafford.

Looking to tighten things up from a defensive standpoint, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to deploy Scott McTominay and Fred in midfield behind Fernandes in the number 10 role.

It resulted in a clean sheet in United's first home game since their 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur, though questions have been raised as to whether Fernandes and club record signing Pogba can successfully function together in the same side.

But Neville offered a suggestion to his former team on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football programme.

"For me, I've never understood why Ole hasn't tried - maybe he's tried it in training and hasn't liked it - one sitter with Pogba and Fernandes in front, like [Kevin] De Bruyne and [David] Silva.

"De Bryune and Silva weren't disciplined midfielder players before Pep Guardiola came to Manchester City. He made them into that.

"So that's the only system I can see where it would be obvious where you could get those two into a position.

"More often than not, Ole has played [Nemanja] Matic and Pogba sitting alongside each other with Fernandes in front.

"Pogba can't play there well, because I think in that position you do need to be disciplined.

"But with a one and a two, I think you can have a bit more freedom to run forward."
