Graeme Souness has shot down Paul Pogba's sparkling performance against Leeds United on Saturday lunchtime.

Pogba bagged four assists as the Red Devils put Leeds to the sword in an impressive attacking performance that sent Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men to the top of the table.

Luke Ayling's wondergoal was cancelled out as Pogba ran the show from the centre of the park, providing assists for Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes.

However, Souness wasn't impressed the with performance.

The former Liverpool manager claimed that you should expect that kind of performance week-in week-out from a '£100million man', and he was more impressed with Greenwood.

He said: "Four. I think you have to include Manchester United in that. Looking at them yesterday, they looked threatening, positive, they have momentum and the crowd seems to be with them.

"They have signed good players. For me, the star of the show was Greenwood. For a young boy, I thought he was sensational."

However, Micah Richards didn't agree with him: "Haha. Pogba has had four assists…."

"We expect that from a £100m man. I was going to get round to the point that they have spent £70m on [Jadon] Sancho," Souness responded.

"Maybe that might be something they look back on and think 'did we need to spend that money?'. Because that boy (Greenwood), is a player, he's a finisher. I think he's going to be a top player."

Souness then spoke about United's chances of getting their hands on the Premier League trophy at the end of the season.

"You have got to include Chelsea. Obviously Manchester City and my old team (Liverpool).

"I think it will be nip and tuck. I don't know if it's the amount of hype surrounding the Premier League because we have been off for 18 months.

"I just think, this time around is greater than normal."
