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...

The France worldwide hadn't played since suffering a hamstring injury in September but there were no signs of rust as he ran the show in United's 4-1 triumph over Newcastle United at Old Trafford. Stevie was a top-class player for so many years. "I feel the same atmosphere", Pogba told BT Sport.

While the Roy Keane take will be that they should not be celebrating a win over Newcastle in such a fashion, it's clear to see that most of this Manchester United team are good friends off the pitch.

"I left it in Paul's hands as to how long he played. We made that decision [to replace him] at a good time - it was a great performance from him".

"Today was a game where we were doing really well, but as soon as they scored the second goal it was really hard".
