Jose Mourinho praises Paul Pogba's 'great influence' on Man United

EPL: Zlatan Ibrahimovic explains why he's 'a lion'

"Then obviously the second goal gave them a lift, and then it was more hard in the second half", Benitez told BT Sport.

"I think we can chase City, why is it not a possibility?" said Ibrahimovic.

Anthony Martial uploaded the following clip to his Instagram story after the game, as Jesse Lingard, Romelu Lukaku, and Paul Pogba danced and sang in celebration.

That today's match against Newcastle United was Lindelöf's first Premier League start serves to underline just how disappointing the centre-back's start to life at Old Trafford has...

A potential shock looked to be on the cards when Toon striker Dwight Gayle fired home in the 14th minute, but the response of Jose Mourinho's side was emphatic. We know his quality. We believe we can do it - that's the aim.

His replacement Lukaku scored the fourth against Newcastle, ending a run of seven games without a goal for the Red Devils.

Ibrahimovic came on for Martial with 13 minutes left to another ovation and the Swede forced an excellent save from Rob Elliot after a last minute bicycle kick.

The Red Devils would have been aware of Manchester City's 2-0 victory earlier on in the day, and they knew that anything less than a win at Old Trafford would have been damaging to their title hopes.

The win kept United second, still eight points behind a City side they host on December 9.

There is no doubting the boost that having four important players returning from injury has brought, giving Mourinho options all over the field.

The former Sweden global hasn't featured for the Europa League winners this season since signing a new deal with Manchester United.

"So to play them together gives us things but also takes some things from us".

"Manchester United is a completely different ball-game, if they lose Paul Pogba, they're more likely to do that parking-the-bus style even more".
