Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes are “two of the best midfielders in the Premier League”, says Luke Shaw.
Manchester United excited by the potential that exists in a new look partnership in midfield.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is yet to find himself in the position where he can pair a both players with Pogba return.
Injury struggles for Frenchman in 2019/20 have seen the player restricted to just eight appearances.
The last apperance came on Boxing Day, with Portugese Fernandes joning from Sporting a few weeks later.
He has made an immediate impact at Old Trafford and the 25 year old is already considered to be a key presence in Solskjaer’s plans.
Pogba with a similar role and time still on his side when it comes to finding the consistency that United were hoping to see when from him.
His next outing could come alongside Fernandes, with United preparing for the resumption of Premier League action.
Shaw is looking forward to seeing two talented players working in the midfield when hostilities resume.
The Red Devils full-back told the club’s official website: “Fernandes been so important, with the chances he’s created.
The goals he’s scored and, hopefully, there’s still much more to come from him.
“I’m sure he’s still settling into the Premier League to an extent, which makes what he’s done all the more impressive.
“He was paired with Pogba in a small training group last week, which people saw on the videos, and we saw flashes of what they were capable of.
“The coaches have switched it up so it’s not just them on the same team and it’s quite nice to see them battling against each other.
They’ve already had some great games against each other but, personally, I’m really looking forward to seeing them line up together.
“They’re probably two of the best midfielders in the Premier League right now, I’d say, so it’s going to be fascinating to see them play together.”
Shaw will be hoping to figure alongside Pogba and Fernandes when a return to action is made.
The 24 year old having worked his way back from a badly broken leg in 2015 to fulfill his potential that United always believed he possessed.
“If I could go back in time and change the way of a game, it would have to be the game when I broke my leg,” Shaw added.
“I felt like I was really flying at that point in my career, I was feeling really confident and obviously nobody ever wants to break their leg in a game!
“It’s obviously a long time on the sidelines and you have times when you feel down.
You feel a long way away from where you want to be, you don’t feel right, your leg doesn’t feel right.
You go through those periods, but the most important thing is to look towards the end of it.
“See the goal and focus on that. You’re going to be back playing, training, and that pushed me a lot of the time, watching the lads playing and training.
“There are times when you don’t want to be involved, but it’s good for you to be around everyone to keep involved.
You don’t want to be forgotten, you want to be around it.”
