Manchester United look one dimensional without Paul Pogba, Kenny Cunningham has warned.

The Red Devils suffered a 2-1 loss to Premier League leaders Manchester City without Pogba at Old Trafford last weekend.

Goals from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi sealed three points as Manchester United failed to trouble the Manchester City defence.

Pogba was ruled out of the Premier League clash following his straight red card in Manchester United’s 3-1 win at Arsenal earlier this month.

The France international produced a dominant performance in north London with two assists before a reckless challenge on Hector Bellerin resulted in a red card.

Pogba has been in excellent form so far this term with three goals and five assists in eight appearances.

The 25-year-old missed two months with a hamstring problem before his three-game suspension for his tackle on Bellerin.

Former Republic of Ireland defender Cunningham believes Manchester United struggle without Pogba’s invention in midfield.

“This is the type of performance Man United better get used to when Paul Pogba is not on the pitch,” Cunningham told Irish radio station Newstalk. “They are so one dimensional.”

Pogba secured a return to Manchester United from Serie A giants Juventus in an 89m deal in the 2016 summer transfer window.

The French star won the Europa League and the League Cup in his first season back at OId Trafford.
