Marcus Rashford: Paul Pogba will be "massive miss"

Marcus Rashford: Paul Pogba will be

As Man United returned to the UEFA Champions League after an absence of nearly two years, Pogba captained the side in his debut for the club in Europe's elite competition.

The Reds' no.27, who returned to action after recovering from a calf injury, replaced captain-for-the-night Paul Pogba after the Frenchman went off injured in the first half.

Pogba pulled up after just 19 minutes, after appearing to overstretch while making a challenge.

It is the second hamstring problem 24-year-old Pogba has suffered in six months. "Big? Small? I don't know, but hamstring for sure".

And Rashford believes United will understandably miss Pogba in midfield, but feels Mourinho has enough strength in depth to cope without him.

Travel could possibly result in citizens being stranded on the roadway or battling high cross winds and rain. But more inland communities could see heavy winds and rain along with an elevated risk of tornadoes.

Pogba's injury will also concern France, who are hoping he is fit in time to play in the crucial World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria on October 7.

Asked if he was aware of Mourinho's comments on his adaptation to Premier League life, the defender said: "I have noticed what's been written, but it's not something that I have focused on". If we want to be champions, then we have to win them types of games [against Everton].

Rashford has looked bright in the early weeks of the campaign but, like Anthony Martial, has been unable to nail down a starting berth due to United's impressive attacking options.

"So we need this and in the Premier League and the Champions League I have to choose the players in relation to the quality". "It's hard when you're in and out of the team but we have to find the positives out of it and I think we have both done that", the England global said.
