Jose Mourinho unhappy with Paul Pogba after midfielder goes against club advice

Jose Mourinho unhappy with Paul Pogba after midfielder goes against club advice

It says a lot that the Belgian has scored more goals this season for club and country than Everton have as an entire club.

Conceding six goals in the last two games, Everton will be taking on an in-form Manchester United side who have conceded just twice this season and have netted twelve goals in their opening four league games.

The Toffees will come in to the on the back of a awful run of results.

The Reds are now perched at the top of the Premier League standings, with 10 points from the first four games.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan should retain his place in the attacking midfield role while Juan Mata could also start once again on the right after impressing during the early stages of the season.

"We know him really well", Koeman said of Lukaku.

"I feel good", Ibrahimovic told Inside United.

In last season's Champions League edition, the Frenchman averaged 2.9 successful tackles and 2.8 interceptions per game, guiding AS Monaco to the semi-finals of the competition, while being one of the main protagonists. But recent history has been kind to United against The Toffees, as they have lost just one of the past six Premier League matches against the Merseyside club.

The 24-year-old, who left the ground on crutches, has instead opted to receive treatment from a personal trainer, which United believe has instead exacerbated the risk of him getting injured. Pogba will also miss next week's game against Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup, a fixture which in all likelihood he would have sat out anyway, and faces a race to be fit for United's clash against Liverpool at Anfield on 14 October. And if we add the UEFA Champions League into the mix, then we can see they have been quite dominant at home. You have better conditions to work and get those results.

On the field this season his early form was promising too, and before he announced his worldwide retirement we saw flashes of the old Rooney, scoring goals and proving the doubters wrong along the way. You can get our pick at the best odds of 11/2 at Bet365.

The former England global would complement Matic well in the centre of midfield, as their defensive structure gives the likes of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Romelu Lukaku the chance to hit teams on the counter attack.
