During the weekend, Jadon Sancho enjoyed a good performance against Andorra despite his struggles with Manchester United after his £73 million move from Dortmund to Manchester United during the summer transfer window. Sancho has only started 2 league games for Manchester United and came in as a substitute on 4 occasions. So far, he has not recorded any assist in the Premier League and he has no goals as well.

Contrary to his poor form in Manchester United, Sancho was on top of the world during the weekend against Andorra. He created 4 chances for England and he also had 88 percent passing accuracy in the match. Sancho registered 3 successful dribbles and registered 2 assists as England won the match by 5 goals.

As Rashford nears return from injury, Solskjaer will be faced with a selection headache because Sancho and Rashford love playing in the left-wing position. Solskjaer looks like he has chosen Greenwood to always start from the right-wing and Ronaldo and Cavani are the undisputed strikers in Manchester United. One of the positions that are still open for contention in Manchester United is the right-wing and Solskjaer might have to choose between Rashford and Sancho.

Paul Pogba is another player whose performance at the October International break will give Solskjaer some serious selection headache ahead of the resumption of Premier League action this weekend. Paul Pogba played for the French national team during the just concluded Nations League. Pogba was an unstoppable force in the midfield of France as they defeated Belgium and Spain to be crowned the winners of the UEFA Nations League.

Pogba's display will give Solskjaer some headache because he will have to decide if Pogba should continue playing as a central midfielder or as a right-winger like Solskjaer prefers to play him in so many games in the past few months. Judging by Pogba's good performances for France, it is obvious that his best position is either the central midfield or the attacking midfield positions.

Pogba can play good football when he plays in the central midfield position, however, he loves to push forward and as such, he needs someone to cover for him when he makes such runs. Solskjaer does not have a strong defensive midfielder who can bring out the best from Pogba and as such, Solskjaer will have to decide whether to continue playing Pogba in the right-wing or bring him back to the central-midfield position in the upcoming encounter between Manchester United and Leicester City.
