United will cope without Pogba - Mourinho

United will cope without Pogba - Mourinho

He left United as the club's record goal scorer, and won a host of honours including five Premier League titles and the Champions League.

The France worldwide will miss United's next three Premier League fixtures against Everton, Southampton and Crystal Palace, as well as their trip to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.

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

Ronald Koeman did not use his full strength in Italy, but with a team boasting the likes of Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Morgan Schneiderlin, Leighton Baines and Michael Keane he would have expected better. And if we add the UEFA Champions League into the mix, then we can see they have been quite dominant at home.

Fellaini's staying power and his utter devotion to whatever manager is in charge make him a huge favourite.

The Red Devils will not have Paul Pogba, as the dynamic midfielder suffered a hamstring injury during the UCL match against FC Basel this past Tuesday.

Luke Shaw, on the other hand, is fully recovered from his injury and is available for selection if the manager wants him.

Now Mourinho has given an update on Pogba's injury ahead of his side's game against Everton on Sunday, as he prepares for a busy moth of action without his most expensive signing.

"Squads are there to try to cope with these kind of situations".

Koeman said: 'I am anxious about our aggression on the pitch and how we defend.

Yet to concede a goal at the Theatre of Dreams, Everton's attacking outlet (or should I say lack of) won't find it easy to penetrate United's impressive defensive unit.

A promising first campaign in the Old Trafford dugout could have been improved markedly had Zlatan Ibrahimovic's goals been better backed up by team-mates.

James McCarthy is a doubt due to a knee injury.

David De Gea has been somewhat idle this season due to Manchester United solidity at the back, although, a lapse in concentration by both Phil Jones and Eric Bailly allowed Choupo-Moting put two past De Gea for the first time in the League this season.

The Goodison Park side know all about the Belgium forward's threat after he scored 20-plus goals in each of his previous three seasons with the Toffees before his move to Old Trafford this summer.
