Liverpool Legend Steven Gerrard Tips Manchester United for Champions League Glory

Steven Gerrard has admitted that he was very impressed by Luke Shaw's performance for Manchester United in the 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

"When he is on the ball, there's lots of things to admire, he's powerful, he's got good technique, he can wrong foot people, he can ping the ball".

Lennon, 46, has criticised Pogba's passing - with his accuracy last night at 81 per cent, which was joint-second lowest of the United outfield players.

However, Man United's record-signing is still only 24 and seems keen to improve himself, so only time will tell if Souness' opinion turns out to be correct.

"That's not what I would want from a £100million player".

"He hasn't got a basic understanding of his position, I can't see that changing", Souness claimed on TV3 in Ireland.

'He can join the defensive side of Manchester United's game but he can also help the forward players because of his legs and passing ability so he makes them an very bad lot of a bigger threat.

It appears that the idea that Pogba's role is not to track back, and not to stay central constantly, and is to drift wide where his strength, pace and footwork make him a fearsome prospect, did not cross Souness's mind.

He added: "That is basic stuff you learn in the youth team".

Gerrard, who moved into a deeper role in his later years at Anfield, reckons the power possessed by the 24-year-old could massively aid United defensively.

Pogba misses the game on Sunday - and the two more league matches following that - after a red card for a stamp on Arsenal's Hector Bellerin. Following his red card against the Gunners, the France worldwide has been handed a three match ban, which sees him miss out on the hugely anticipated Manchester derby, as well as games against both Bournemouth and West Brom.
