Gary Neville explains why Manchester United duo of Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez for the Emirate FA Cup tie with Tottenham Hotspurs this weekend.

The 24-year-old France international appeared to have overcome his recent struggles when producing an inspirational two-goal showing in a derby win over city rival at Etihad Stadium while Sanchez has been struggling with form since in January move from Arsenal.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho suggested that he's ready to bench underperforming stars following their dreadful performance against West Brom on Sunday as Red Devils lost 1-0 to the bottom-of-the-table side to hands Pep Guardiola side Premier League title.

Reports suggest Pogba and Sanchez are among those Mourinho is ready to axe from the starting line-up for upcoming matches and former England international says that he has given his blessing.

Having backed those proposals in a series of posts on social media, the Manchester United legend said on supposed star turns who are not pulling their weight:

"You watched them recently!

"If they play hope they play well but you couldn’t argue against Rashford, Martial, Mata, Lingard etc in front of them!”

Neville added on Pogba after having it pointed out that he has previously branded United “a better side” with the Frenchman in it: “Yes but enough is enough!

"He’s playing at walking pace! He can do so much more...”

Manchester United face Bournemouth in league action on Wednesday before they head to Wembley Stadium on Saturday hoping to dash the FA Cup dreams of Tottenham in what has been their temporary home this season.
