Pogba limps out of United game in first half

Unlike last season when Sergio Romero played in goal for most of United's European games, Mourinho has also confirmed David de Gea will retain his number one jersey for Tuesday.

"That's why you have such a strong squad", the 19-year-old forward said.

United acted quickly to make the long-standing defensive target Jose Mourinho's first summer signing, paying Benfica an initial 35million euros (£30.75million) for the Sweden international's services.

"We are playing only with two midfield players, with (Nemanja) Matic and Pogba, which are playing really well and without reason to change". His decision can be considered a young player who wants to play every weekend but also a young player that is not ready to fight for something hard and it's hard to play in Manchester United's midfield.

"It's the squad we have, I have to use the players and that's the life in clubs with squads of quality".

Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are others yet to feature as they return from injury, while Tuesday's match gave Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof a first chance to play since the UEFA Super Cup.

"I don't know. I just know from experience it's a muscular injury". "It's hard when you're in and out of the team but we have to find the positives out of it and I think we have both done that", the England worldwide said. "But was his decision, I opened the door, he has a long-term contract, we have the option to bring him back on January 1, so is not a drama but is a decision which disappoints me a little bit".

I don't know (what the severity is), Mourinho told MUTV. They are all good players and I think it's easy to play with them all.
