#BROGBA: Alan Shearer sees a dangerous partnership in Bruno Fernandes and Pogba

Former Newcastle United star Alan Shearer thinks Manchester United have a strong midfield duo in Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.

Red Devils fans got a glimpse of the two in action as Pogba came on in the second half against Tottenham.

They almost combined on separate occasions, but the team had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

Shearer thinks as Pogba gets closer to full fitness, the duo can prove devastating for United in the remaining Premier League games.

"Bruno Fernandes was the best player on the park," Shearer said on Match of the Day.

"His first touch and his first thought is to look and to play forward, and he makes the players ahead of him better players because of that.

"The options that he now provides because of that, his energy, his ability to pick the right pass, whereas before he arrived they were struggling in that position.

"If Pogba's going to play on a regular basis, or decides to stay, then it could be a very, very good partnership."
