That is the view of pundit and previous Liverpool and Scotland superstar Graeme Souness.
Fellaini made his first get started of the season for Manchester United the day gone by within the four-zero win over Everton at Old Trafford.
The Belgian stepped in for Pogba, who injured his hamstring within the Champions League win over Basel remaining Tuesday.
Pogba could also be out for round 3 months with the issue so Fellaini may just now have a longer duration within the beginning XI.
Souness does no longer suppose this is a downside although, as he believes opposition managers concern him more than the Frenchman.
“He’s a bigger threat than Paul Pogba,” Souness stated on Sky Sports of Fellaini.
“He’s more of a objective threat.
“If I’m managing a workforce towards Manchester United, I’d be happier with Pogba at the pitch than Fellaini.
“He is a actual objective threat, he’s no longer silky.
“If I used to be operating with him I’d be pronouncing ‘get the ball, win the ball, use your aggression, stay within the rules of the game, play it simple and get yourself forward’.
“Nobody, no person is worked up competing towards him when the ball comes within the field.”
United are again in motion the next day night time once they host Burton Albion within the Carabao Cup (7.45pm).
