No rest for in-form Romelu Lukaku

Pogba suffered a hamstring injury 19 minutes into his UEFA Champions League debut for Man United, as he captained the side at Old Trafford.

"Lukaku has been playing well for United".

As a player, in any sport, there's no greater compliment you can receive than to you have an opponent says just how much he dreads going up against you.

Mourinho repeatedly claimed not to know how bad Pogba's injury was as the club continued to assess him in-house, as well as seeking specialist advice.

"He used to back in, get flick-ons, hold the ball up".

"Sometimes he make a choice between Marcus Rashford or Anthony Martial". CSKA Moscow were victims of another Lukaku-Martial combination for the second goal as the Belgian fed off of Martial's cross. Take in away games and it's four clean sheets in their last five. Martial will also enjoy a global break next week having not been selected in Didier Deschamps' France team, though that already looks like an error.

Manchester United can not rest Romelu Lukaku until Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back fit and available, manager Jose Mourinho said.

Clearly the new-look PSG face their biggest test thus far but at odds-against they look tantalisingly big - it's not a price you will get about them at the Parc des Princes too often this season.

Bryan Robson has been impressed by the "strong squad" which José Mourinho has created at Manchester United, with the Reds suffering from a number of injuries now.

Ibrahimovic, 35, has not featured for Manchester United since he landed awkwardly in the Europa League win over Anderlecht in April.

"The most successful club in England and hopefully we can add to the trophies we won last season and hopefully win some more". Lukaku also scored his first-ever United goal against Real Madrid.

Last season, Mourinho's preferred tactic when playing away against the top teams was to sit back, soak up pressure and try to push for the draw. "If I do that, it looks like we did something extraordinary in three months that he doesn't have in the remaining years of his career", said Mourinho.

He added: "I have treated nearly 60 professional players and Ibrahimovic is certainly one of the best and strongest players I have ever operated on".

Mourinho and United will finally get their chance to send out a similar message after the global break.

MUTV's Paddy Crerand: "It was another terrific display by United".
