No rest yet for Lukaku, Mourinho says

Premier League: Harry Kane's goals, Pep Guardiola's influence and other talking points from gameweek 7

Jose Mourinho has warned Paul Pogba that he would have to fight for his spot in the Manchester United team as the Red Devils have impressed in his absence.

"The big test will be in the big games", he explained.

Just 16 months into the job, the man charged with the task of returning former glories to Old Trafford has set about that challenge with aplomb.

"It's hard to find different words every three days", Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said of Kane, who he has lavished with praise in recent weeks - even saying he is "in love" with him.

However, United's reliance on the Belgian is worrying - at least with Zlatan Ibrahimović on the sidelines for the foreseeable future. Along with Lukaku, you have Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford lighting it up, giving the Red Devils three prolific scorers in the final third right now.

But, while Mourinho will still not address those claims, he has finally conceded there is no return for his midfield ace in the near future.

Man Utd easily hurdled what could have been a tricky obstacle on Wednesday evening as they hammered CSKA Moscow 4-1 in Russian Federation.

He recorded an assist in Manchester United's 4-0 thumping of Crystal Palace as he played all 90 minutes at the weekend. "I always thought that he was not to leave, he wants to stay", he said. "What I see? In a word; happiness".

They're back now competing and you'd expect United now to be at the latter stages of the Champions League and certainly winning the Premiership.

Spanish stars Juan Mata and David de Gea meanwhile dealt with what looked like a father and son who were keen on a more old fashioned souvenir, an autograph.

Pogba was dictating games, overpowering players, creating and scoring goals for United. "Ibra, Pogba, Rojo, I don't think about these players".
