Former Aston Villa and Liverpool attacker Stan Collymore believes Scott McTominay and Christian Eriksen are not good enough for Manchester United.

Collymore told CaughtOffside: “I think Man United need midfield upgrades for Scott McTominay and Christian Eriksen.

“On Eriksen – I get why they signed him and why he went to Old Trafford, it was a no-brainer for both at the time but I thought against Arsenal it was very obvious that he was one of the weak links.

“If Casemiro is a nailed-on starter, which he is, then McTominay and Eriksen should be surplus to requirements. Sunday proved that United’s midfield, without the Brazilian, cannot compete with the league’s best, such as Arsenal’s trio of Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka and Martin Odegaard.”

“I think United need two, maybe even three, top-quality midfielders in the summer,” he added.

“Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice are two that are probably going to be available, and if United, or any other club for that matter, could get those two in the same window – what a statement that would be. Those two would transform any side’s midfield – they’re that good.”
