Paul Pogba predicts where Man United will finish this term

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic hints that his injury was more serious than people realise despite making his return more than a month ahead of schedule. I can talk of what Paul brings - big quality.

"When you play for such a club, the expectation is incredible and you always have to win", You always have to play good and win, and, at the end of the season, lift trophies", Mata said.

After a decade of domination as his country's best player, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no longer sitting atop the mountain of Swedish football, after failing to win the Swedish Golden Ball for the first time since 2006.

The busy winter fixture list will see United play nine games in December alone and Mata has revealed that Ibrahimovic, Pogba and Marcos Rojo, who has also returned after seven months out with a knee injury, have given the whole squad a lift.

PSG could afford to have such a rift in their team because their quality was superior to the rest of Ligue 1, but if United are to overcome Manchester City-whose forward line have great chemistry and work together as a potent attacking unit-they need to achieve a similar level of harmony. Not really impressed by them.

Stating that: "Football was waiting for you", it is clear to see the opinion that Maradona holds of Ibrahimovic, and like many, is delighted to see the enigmatic figure return to playing.

"But will they beat any of the big teams?"

Pogba finished the season with nine goals in 51 appearances and winner's medals in both the League Cup and Europa League, his goal in the final of the latter setting United en route to victory over Ajax. A top player who cost as much as he cost wouldn't just have to do that to be acclaimed. I don't know what the future brings but what happens happens.

Manchester United comfortably defeated Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Saturday and now, they will be looking to earn all three points against Basel in the Champions League.

He told Sky Sports: "I don't think they can play together as a front two".
