How Will Manchester United Cope With The Loss Of Injured Paul Pogba?

This weekend he will come up against his former team when United take on Everton

Should Manchester United avoid defeat in this match, it'll be the first time that they have remained unbeaten in their opening five games of a Premier League season since 2011-12.

Marouane Fellaini was brought on to replace the French worldwide and the Belgian proved why he is so important to Jose Mourinho by putting United ahead before setting up Marcus Rashord later in the second half.

Rooney is Manchester United's record goalscorer, and Jose Mourinho says he'll get the reception he deserves from the Old Trafford crowd.

"He'll get a great reception from the United fans because he was such a great player for United in such a successful era as well".

The Belgian global would provide United with plenty of steel in the middle of the park alongside Nemanja Matic.

United enjoyed their return to the Champions League with a 3-0 win over Basel, however The Toffees lost 3-0 to Atalanta on Thursday in their first Europa League group match. There is no doubt Jose Mourinho's men will try to extend that positive run in front of their own crowd.

There is no question Manchester United have started the season on a positive note.

Shaw has been unavailable because of ligament damage to his foot since the back end of last season, but Mourinho said the left-back is now in contention once more.

On the field this season his early form was promising too, and before he announced his global retirement we saw flashes of the old Rooney, scoring goals and proving the doubters wrong along the way. "We know him really well but he's one of the best strikers", said the Dutchman.

He also played down the theory that he is most effective as a manager in his second season at a club, as he suggested the club is in a better shape now than when he took control last summer.

It's not likely we'll see his name in the team sheet on Sunday, but could very likely feature against Burton in the League Cup on Wednesday night.

"The way the team plays I think they have to, when a team doesn't create a lot, doesn't have the ball, when it's just a reactive team, it's more hard".

Apparently though the France midfielder instead opted to seek treatment from an external personal trainer and Mourinho and the United medics feel that has "made the midfielder far more vulnerable to injury".
