How Manchester United could line up against Young Boys

However, the Portuguese tactician was not willing to allow Pogba any more time on the pitch to seal a rare hat-trick and hauled him off in order to keep him fresh for United's weekend clash with Wolves.

"I can get as an example, we are in Switzerland, the home of one of the best ever tennis players, and I'm pretty sure that the big man sometimes is not happy to play in such a surface but he as to play and he has to win".

Of his side's European prospects, Mourinho added: "A team to win the Champions league needs to have fantastic quality in every part of the team and needs to go over certain matches".

Pace remained a component of what was a fine first half as it moved to the 30-minute mark. Mourinho's side were teetering on the brink of crisis after consecutive defeats against Brighton and Tottenham last month, but thanks to Pogba they have now responded with three victories on the bounce.

Anthony Martial scored the third goal of the night and that goal could be very important for his season. The run-up - trotting forward like a show pony - looked comical but the finish, high into the top right-hand corner, was anything but. Game over and slip-up avoided. Offered the chance to double the advantage from the penalty spot just before half-time, he made no mistake.

"We are professional footballers so we need to be able to play on any surface". Everything is there except, maybe, consistency.

The Sixers may want Butler more than he wants them, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't try. If he opted to sign elsewhere, he could receive four years and $140.6 million.

'Good performance, ' he said. The trick is to do repeat the display until it is average games that become the rarity. However, he can not be accused of downing tools and, with their star man in this kind of form, United are a better team.

United had 16 shots and 57 percent possession, while Young Boys did have 18 shots but tried many from deep to get back into the match.

David De Gea is likely to start on Wednesday night and the Spaniard is hoping to end a disappointing run in the Champions League that has seen United reach just one quarterfinal in the last seven years.

Made a couple of routine stops early on as Young Boys tried their luck from distance, but had very little in the form of real work to do. At more than six-feet tall and built like a boxer, Mourinho does not have to wait for Dalot to fill out. Just as Young Boys began to pick up the tempo again midway through the second half in the hope that there might still be something in the game for them, the World Cup victor picked the ball up and ran at their back line.

The United goalkeeper was called into action again to tip over Mohamed Ali Camara's fizzing long-range drive before Marcus Rashford clipped an effort against the outside of the post as United belatedly woke from their slumber.
