Absence makes Man Utd grow fonder for Pogba

Absence makes Man Utd grow fonder for Pogba

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's unbroken ten-year run as Sweden's best player came to an end on Monday when FC Krasnodar defender Andreas Granqvist won the country's Golden Ball for 2017.

The former Sweden global made his return in Manchester United's 4-1 win against Newcastle on Saturday, coming on as a late replacement for Anthony Martial.

The veteran striker Ibrahimovic made his return from injury as United defeated Newcastle in the Premier League last weekend.

After he was brought in at considerable expense as the future of the club's forward line, Lukaku should be Mourinho's first choice, but that will may be hard given Ibrahimovic's dominant personality, as Carragher noted.

Manchester United are aiming to win the Premier League for the first time this season since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.

"I think we can chase City, why is it not a possibility?" said Ibrahimovic.

Said the former Manchester City and Wales forward: "The concern with Zlatan is that he is such a big character, always the main man, wherever he's been". Jose said, 'Do whatever you want, I trust in you and you know what you have to do, ' so I was not anxious. "Lukaku is having to do a lot for himself, but Pogba will make the difference".

The 32-year-old has was named in Sweden's Euro 2008 squad, and this term has played in both of Sweden's recent World Cup qualifier play-off games against Italy.

When Pogba is not playing, the average goals figure halves.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes that Manchester United strikers Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be headed for a bust-up.

The 24-year-old has been directly responsible for eight goals in his last six league appearances - four goals, four assists - and with him and Ibrahimovic back on the scene, confidence is flooding back.

Mourinho has indicated Pogba could be rested, but whether he plays or not, his return to fitness has given United a major lift.
