SPOTTED: What Ibrahimovic Said To Lukaku vs Newcastle

Paul Pogba is convinced that Manchester United can win the Premier League title this season. I can talk of what Paul brings - big quality.

Ibrahimovic and Pogba both made their comebacks in the 4-1 win against Newcastle on Saturday - Ibrahimovic after seven months out with a knee injury and Pogba after missing 12 games with a hamstring problem.

"I think Pogba is a big miss because of his confidence and arrogance", said former United captain Gary Neville after Mourinho's men succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at Chelsea.

Ibrahimovic was handed a 13-minute cameo at Old Trafford for what was his first competitive appearance since picking up the serious injury in April. Zlatan and Paul are experienced players, top players and they give us a lot of things on and off the pitch.




The enigmatic Swede has, however, been brought back into the fold after recovering from a serious knee injury and 1999 treble victor Cole - who operated alongside the likes of Dwight Yorke, Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during his time with United - believes added competition will prove to be a help rather than a hindrance. Sooner or later, Lukaku is going to have to tell him, no you get on the right wing, I'm the £90m centre forward. I think there is a good atmosphere in the dressing room. We were early into it previous year and won two trophies and we are stronger this season.

"We believe we can do it - that's the aim".

"It's fantastic to be playing. Even if I had a contract or not I needed to train, that's up to the other people, I knew I would stay because I wanted to stay", Ibrahimovic told reporters. "I don't know what the future brings but what happens, happens", Ibrahimovic explained, as reported by the Manchester Evening News. I don't think Pogba makes a great deal of difference and we will see when they play the good teams.

Asked about next term, the 36 year-old stated: "Right now, I'm just grateful to be able to play football again".
