Man Utd star Pogba has one big weakness — Lampard

"I told you, lions don't recover like humans".

"The more that we are fit to play the better for everyone", he explained.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is clearly having a positive impact on his Manchester United colleagues. But, this speculation was not long-lasting.

Top-of-the-table Manchester City are playing to a tune conducted by De Bruyne and have found themselves top of the table as a result, with the Belgian proving unequivocally that he is the best player in the Premier League right now. A top player who cost as much as he cost wouldn't just have to do that to be acclaimed. And he was there on the pitch already.

The Red Devils battered Newcastle 4-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday. Ibrahimovic was wonderfully welcomed back onto his stage at the Theatre of Dreams.

The 36-year-old made his first United appearance in seven months against Newcastle United at the weekend after he tore his ACL in April.

Yet it was only during the period of absence brought on by the hamstring injury Pogba sustained against Basel on September 12 that his importance began to be truly acknowledged. "We have a good mix of experienced players and young players, players who know the Premier League really well".

Ibrahimovic returned to fitness after seven months out with injury in the same game.

Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian replace the former duo, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan doesn't start, reducing his chances at redemption following a severe drop in form.

That though, won't mean that the effectiveness will reduce.

Roma can seal their place in the next round with a point at Atletico Madrid, while Chelsea will progress with victory over Qarabag - or if Atletico fail to win in Spain. "It shows my confidence in the players", said the manager, singling out Sergio Romero for particular praise.

It was the sort of game the Shaw of old would thrive in.

To describe Luke Shaw as an afterthought would be inaccurate, because that term in itself implies he is actually in his manager's thinking. "I think this is hilarious". We caught a glimpse of this pairing when Zlatan made his return on Saturday. It's a big boost for us.

Anthony Martial, too, is regularly serenaded, but Pogba is still waiting for an ode in his honour to take root.
