Anthony Martial still faces return to Manchester United bench

Liam Brady, while also complementing United's performance, did add that something is missing to make them even better.

Anthony Martial's sensational start to the current campaign was last night highlighted yet again following Manchester United's win over CSKA Moscow.

"I think it was two years ago Manchester City had a situation and [Manuel] Pellegrini chose to play with the second team because he was trying to reach the Champions League semifinal".

Marouane Fellaini has scored three times in Pogba's absence and Mourinho believes the Belgian's impact underlines the trust he has in United's squad members.

"We never miss the players that are injured".

"That's our way of seeing [it]".

"So to have people like Mata, Herrera, Valencia, Matic, to have people like them - and I am just giving a few examples, I could give more - is very important because managers, we don't have an easy life now". "So I think it's normal, a little bit of relaxation".

"We have to play against everybody home and away and when I look at the fixtures I only look to the period of time we have to recover from match to match", said Mourinho.

United cruised to a 4-1 victory over CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night, following on from a 3-0 win against Basel on matchday one, and a near ideal start to the Premier League campaign.

Now Lukaku's fine run of form has seen himself earn a place in the Old Trafford history books.

Roberto Martinez's Red Devils have already qualified for the World Cup so it might be a chance to take things easy on Lukaku, whose role for Mourinho's Red Devils will be far more important until Ibrahimovic returns from his long-term knee injury.

"We are humble, we know that the great teams of the Premier League we didn't play them yet, so we are calm, we follow our work".

"The big tests for Lukaku will come in the big games", he said.

So, if United manage to keep out Roy Hodgson's side at Old Trafford, we will have kept six clean sheets from the opening seven matches, a feat previously achieved only once in the Premier League by the club, in 1997/98.
