Neville: Lukaku Could Get The Bench Next

share on:

Former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville feels the next player at United to follow Paul Pogba to the bench could be Romelu Lukaku, as he sees an opening up front for Alexis.

Jose Mourinho has shown he can bench key players , following the benching of Paul Pogba for a few matches.

And Neville feels Alexis could be moved up front, as a replacement for the struggling Lukaku, and Rashford brought in.

The former United defender told Sky Sports: “My view at the moment is that the one person who is under some pressure is Romelu Lukaku, in terms of his form, and also that Sanchez could go up front, because I’m not sure he’s suited to the right. That may allow Marcus to come back into the team.

“I think Lukaku has done well this season, but I think there comes a point whereby if both he and Alexis Sanchez are not performing to their best, which they are not at the moment, you’d think Sanchez will be moved up top and Lukaku may come out of the team for a few matches.

“It’s not because he’s a bad player, but he could come out of the team, freshen up, see the game differently, and then come back in when others have had a go.”
