Carlton Palmer reckons Paul Pogba's Manchester United career has been dented by his lack of consistency but also believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's system isn't helping the Frenchman.

Pogba returned to United from Juventus four years ago and has failed to replicate the form he had at the Serie A club, with majority continuing to criticise the 27-year-old for his displays at Old Trafford.

But, Palmer believes fans cannot solely blame the “talented” midfielder for his current situation at United.

“I see him leaving United," he told Football FanCast.

“Why was he successful at Juventus? Well, they played three at the back, five in the middle of the park, which allowed him to play in a free role. Go and do and what you’ve got to do son.”

“He’s a talented boy, but you can’t keep blaming Pogba if you don’t play him and set the team up the right way for him to perform.”

“He [Solskjaer] can’t keep blaming him, because that’s not his game.”

"If I’m sitting there and I’m Paul Pogba I’m going ‘I’m not in his best team He needs to pull out a result, he’s under immense pressure today and I’m on the bench’.

"What does that say to the likes of Paul Pogba. That’s where if I’m Pogba I’m like ‘where do I lie in his plans’.

"I think for Ole the two in front of the back four are his insurance policy. That front four have got to go and produce. Rashford, Bruno, creating chances and scoring goals is what he needs from them today."
