Nuts! Man United’s Shinji Kagawa pokes the ball through Steven Gerrard’s legs

The jury is out on how well Shinji Kagawa played for Manchester United against Liverpool in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night.

Kagawa, thanks to his absence in recent weeks, has been built up as a potential saviour for Manchester United this season and although he showed some nice touches against Liverpool, the Japanese playmaker still looked a bit rung rusty.

The undoubted highlight was Kagawa’s nutmeg of Steven Gerrard just before the hour mark that will have delighted Manchester United fans.

After all, Gerrard is a Liverpool icon and will not have enjoyed that moment at all…
