No let-up in games for in-form Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku

He's back! Man Utd coaches prepare for Ibrahimovic training return

United manager Mourinho had previously refused to comment on those reports and claimed he had not even asked for an update about Pogba's status.

The sight of Paul Pogba limping away from Manchester United's return to Champions League action against Basel in early September had many a Reds supporter anxious, particularly when it was Marouane Fellaini called upon to take the Frenchman's place.

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Paul Pogba's hamstring injury is of a "long term" nature and noted that Phil Jones and Michael Carrick would miss the clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday. Long-term injuries I don't speak about them.

"So Ibra [Zlatan Ibrahimovic] and Pogba and Marcos Rojo, these players I don't think about them", the Portuguese manager was quoted as saying, according to the Guardian.

United will welcome Crystal Palace on Old Trafford this weekend looking to stretch their unbeaten run and cement a standing among the early Premier League pacesetters - with only goal difference keeping them off top spot at present.

Mourinho will continue to lean heavily on the 24-year-old striker until Ibrahimovic makes his comeback from a cruciate knee ligament injury.

"Without Zlatan we can't rotate the strikers", Also because Marcus Rashford is playing in other positions.

"Now I think, of course, Manchester United is a different level of expectation and he's coping well".

With how Manchester United have started the season, it's easy to forget that Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his 28 goals last season are waiting in the wings.

"We could have won every single game but we are happy at the moment and we are happy to be in this position but it's just the beginning of October and we need to keep going".

However, a recent report from the Telegraph has claimed that the Frenchman may not be ready to return until after the November worldwide break. "I can not, professionally speaking, say, "Do this or do that".
