Paul Pogba: Manchester United should build team around midfielder, says Chris Sutton

"If United want to push and be serious about contending for major honours, you need to keep your best players and Paul Pogba is one of those".

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plans to rebuild his squad but can not offer Champions League football next season.

Huddersfield may have won this fixture last season but a repeat here is unlikely after the Terriers were relegated in record-equalling time way back in March.

But he refused to see their participation in the Europa League as a poisoned chalice despite the fact it could hasten the departure of a number of their star performers in the summer.

Manchester United should build a team around Paul Pogba but will struggle to attract big-name signings, says Premier League victor Chris Sutton. Sanchez is a big expensive mistake - one United have made before and will, you suspect, make again.

Sanchez has struggled with form and fitness issues since his move and has failed to live up to expectations despite being one of Manchester United's highest-paid players.

This result means they can no longer catch Tottenham and Chelsea in the Champions League places - and could yet start the season in the Europa League play-offs should they finish in the sixth place and Watford beat Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

No. The most damaging aspect of this latest setback were the look, and words, of resignation from Solskjaer as he spoke of a season in the Europa League, and a loss of around £35 million in Champions League appearance money.

Chelsea are 21 points behind second-placed Manchester City, who could go top with a home win over Leicester City on Monday. We didn't win there last season (in the league) so it's a good challenge for us. "It's not come as a surprise but we hoped to show a better performance today".

"But since Sir Alex Ferguson left they've spent £744m and what they've done is try to buy the Harlem Globetrotters, not necessarily players to make a team". "Of course I'm an optimist but I don't think that's realistic, because the two teams now at the top of the table they are far ahead of the chasing pack".

Quickfire headers from Ruben Loftus-Cheek and David Luiz early in the second half, both from Eden Hazard assists, put them in control and Argentine marksman Gonzalo Higuain added a third in the 75th minute.
