  • Mourinho: It was easy to let Rooney leave

"But Manchester United are really strong, a stronger team than last season and at the moment we're not at the level we were last season".

The last time Manchester United hosted Everton the game ended with a 1-1 draw.

France global Pogba was rather underwhelming on his return to Old Trafford last season and many were questioning the £90million the club spent on signing him from Italian champions Juventus.

Lukaku has hit the ground running since his £75 million switch to Man United with his strike in Tuesday's Champions League opener against FC Basel goal number six of the season so far.

The 24-year-old was also prolific for Everton, becoming the club's highest-ever Premier League goalscorer before his exit, and Lingard has backed the Belgian to continue his good form despite facing the Toffees.

Furthermore, when enquired about the duration for which the side will be without their key attacking midfielder, he answered: "We know that, for a few matches, I don't know how many, but I expect we are to play without Pogba for a few matches".

"Everton obviously lack goals but they can make it hard, especially without Paul Pogba, and I can see this being a heated affair, perhaps with a red card playing a big part".

Everton have attempted just seven shots on target in their four Premier League games this season; a joint-low alongside Swansea City, with just one of these coming in their last two matches.

"If you score a goal, you hear players talk about, you sort of lose yourself and I don't think we should get away from that", the Welshman said.

Everton have lost more Premier League games versus Man Utd than against any other side in the competition (33).

While it may be just a slight anomaly, the Portuguese will also have in the back of his mind that he remains without a win over Koeman in the Premier League since the former Barcelona captain took over the reins at Southampton in 2014.

"He is just doing parts of it, so I still think Marcos has in front of him probably a couple of months".

"I think this Premier League is much more defensive-minded, and much more hard".

Mourinho refused to enter into any debate as to how Lukaku and Ibrahimovic compare. But I am young and learning and that is going to be good for me.

"I thought about it all throughout the summer and a bit longer". When players are similar, you can compare. "I am not going to do that".
