Liverpool legend Lawro: Man Utd need to buy to give senior players jolt

Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson believes Manchester United's senior players are cruising.

Lawro wrote in the Mirror: "United's biggest problem is that they are cruising.

"They have failed to buy from a position of strength in the summer and as a result there is no pressure on the players.

"Wayne Rooney apart - he is playing with a point to prove - there is no-one in the team who is at it right now.

"Even if Moyes steams into them, they will simply look around the dressing room and say, 'Who is going to take my place?'

"Who does Marouane Fellaini threaten?

"Tom Cleverley.

"That says it all.

"United missed a trick in not bringing in three quality players as a priority in the summer."
