Five things we learned in the Premier League

Five things we learned in the Premier League

"In the absence of the injured Swede, Lukaku has expected to stay on the pitch for 90 minutes whatever happens, but now he faces the prospect of being substituted with 20 minutes left if he is not delivering the goods".

Pogba and Ibrahimovic remain in contention for the match against Basel, but the defensive duo of Phil Jones and Eric Bailly miss out owing to injuries.

Ibrahimovic drew the same excited reaction from the crowd that he always did, starting with applause and chants when he made his way to the touchline to warm up for the first time.

After their electric start to the season, Mourinho's men seemed to slow their pace over the last few matches.

Zlatan Ibrahimović's return from a torn ACL should also take the pressure off Big Rom. Whether they can play up front together or not - and Mourinho insists they can - it at least gives the manager an option to rotate the two and give Lukaku a well-deserved rest. He could have hung his boots up, yet here he is, fit and playing for one of the Premier League's title contenders. I enjoyed the quality and beauty of our football, ' said Mourinho, a stark contrast to the grump who watched his team beaten at Huddersfield and rebuked even in victory over Spurs.

To add insult to injury for Newcastle, David de Gea then saved from Isaac Hayden to keep the score at 2-1 in the final minute before the turnaround. Paul Pogba was impressive once again, Marouane Fellaini could have scored a hat-trick of headers, and the return of Marcos Rojo from injury was a notable positive.

Eden Hazard sparkled for Chelsea, while Arsenal took the north London bragging rights.

Needless to say, Mourinho will want to see a more commanding, energetic display from his full-backs against a Brighton side that will try and minimise the space between their defence and midfield. A top player who cost as much as he cost wouldn't just have to do that to be acclaimed.

Though he has often dazzled with his long-legged technical artistry, the recognition of Pogba's influence on United's play has been slow in coming.

Ibrahimovic was United's star man at times last season scoring 28 goals in all competitions.

"It was a tough time", recalled the England international.

Pascal Gross has been directly involved in 62% of Brighton's 13 Premier League goals this season (three goals, five assists), the second highest ratio in the division after Tammy Abraham at Swansea (71%). United have run rampant at Old Trafford so far this season.
