Neville Warns Manchester United About Returning Rooney

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has insisted that Romelu Lukaku will not be fazed by the prospect of coming up against his former club when the Red Devils welcome Everton to Old Trafford on Sunday.

Rooney ended his 13-year spell at United last season and made a return to Everton on a free transfer.

"Knowing Wayne, I'm sure he'll be nervous, but relishing the chance as well and he'll want to score because that's his job".

After making a shock £75million move to Manchester United this summer, the Belgian worldwide has already begun cementing his name in the club's proud history, having scored five times in his first five appearances for the Red Devils.

Romelu Lukaku joined Manchester United at the "right moment", according to Jose Mourinho.

Marouane Fellaini, who was Pogba's substitute on Wednesday, went on to score a goal and assist another, and he will be more than eager to fill the shoes of the Frenchman.

Herrera has been restricted to just one start this season following the form of Pogba and Matic, but he still remains a vital first-team player and one who will have a big part to play in the club's race for the Premier League title.

"I don't know", said Mourinho when asked how long Pogba would be out for ahead of the Everton game.

Yet to concede a goal at the Theatre of Dreams, Everton's attacking outlet (or should I say lack of) won't find it easy to penetrate United's impressive defensive unit.

"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".

On Sunday, Lukaku, who signed for United in the close season, will come up against his old club Everton.

United won the Community Shield, EFL Cup and, most importantly, Europa League, although Mourinho regularly bemoaned his side's inability to finish teams off.

"It's not just about the striker. I think fans recognise that".

"I think his experiences over the past two seasons will definitely help him mentally", Saha told BetStars. "We couldn't be happier (with him)".

Mourinho refused to enter into any debate as to how Lukaku and Ibrahimovic compare.

However, their neighboring rivals, Manchester City, have the same amount of points now, with the goal difference being the only thing separating the Mancunian clubs. But I am young and learning and that is going to be good for me.
