Paul Pogba's challenge on Dele Alli during Manchester United's 1-0 win at Tottenham has led to another disagreement between pundits.

"I think he's not meaning to touch Dele Alli, he's meaning to protect the ball, he's trying to get his leg across.

"At the time I thought Pogba was trying to plant his foot here and roll Dele Alli.

"He obviously mistimes it slightly, he does touch Dele Alli, I think he scrapes him rather than really stamps on him so I think he'd be very unlucky.

Souness claimed Pogba should have seen red, while Redknapp defended the player and felt a red card would be harsh on the Frenchman as he was just trying to protect the ball.

"And it was only a couple of weeks ago that I saw Jonjo Shelvey do pretty much exactly the same thing to Paul Pogba and I said that Shelvey should have got a red card.

And Match of the Day 2 pundits Jermaine Jenas and Darren Fletcher also had their say, with the former United midfielder defending Pogba and claiming that the style in which he plays was a contributing factor in why he made the challenge in the way he did.
