While the game against Newcastle was going on, respected presenter Gary Lineker tweeted his praise about Rashford. The loss of influential centre-back John Stones, who faces up to six weeks out after succumbing to a hamstring injury during City's 2-0 win at Leicester, therefore leaves manager Pep Guardiola with an unwanted headache. "What I do enjoy, though, is a footballer who can produce moments of magic with a football at his feet". "We had control, we had goals and beautiful actions".
"He's a great player, like the majority of the Manchester United players. I like that", Pogba added.
When you play against a top team, you know you will get punished.
"It hurts because you want to help the team".
"It is special [to be back]".
This was not a one-man work, it was everyone's and thanks to them that I am back on field and can play because if people knew the real injury they would be in shock that I was even playing. He continued to threaten all afternoon too, putting in some fantastic deliveries.
And the 24-year-old proved his worth with a superb individual display, but the France star is adamant United's squad have never paid attention to their critics. We are stronger this season. Both sides have three games each before facing one another on December 12 and Mourinho won't want the gap any bigger than it is now. United went on to win the game but it wasn't a very good individual performance from Matic. But I am really pleased with our performance in the first 30 minutes (United equalised in the 37th minute). "I refuse to allow a poor rendition of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever with a poor haircut to stop me from producing an honest selection, but I do so through gritted teeth".
It looks a side capable of winning games and also, entertaining the fans.
The duo were picked to conduct the post-match interview as a result, though Ibrahimovic couldn't resist bringing up how Pogba opted to spend much of his time on the sidelines in Miami rather than at the club's Carrington training ground.
