Paul Pogba says Manchester United are mentally stronger after three wins

Paul Pogba says Manchester United are mentally stronger after three wins

A Champions League match 60 years in the waiting.

Manchester United have announced their starting line-up and substitutes to lock horns with Swiss side Young Boys in their opening Champions League group stage clash.

"It was extremely hard in the first half", he added.

The records will show that Manchester United won a game they were expected to win in the Stade de Suisse but manager Jose Mourinho has every right to feel more satisfaction.

Nine minutes later, Pogba had two.

Anthony Martial also scored for United, the three-time winners who were knocked out of the competition last season in the round of 16.

"We had to adapt to the pitch for sure but then after the first goal, the game was under control and it was just a question of controlling the game and trying to score the goals to give us the stability that we needed for the second half".




With a home game against Valencia next, United need a positive start in Group H, but Young Boys are unbeaten this season and will come into the match full of confidence.

"So, we have (Romelu) Lukaku, Rashford, (Juan) Mata, Alexis (Sanchez), (Anthony) Martial and they can not play all together".

Christian Fassnacht had two opportunities to put Young Boys ahead early - one in the 30th minute, when he scuffed his shot after debutant Diogo Dalot fell down, and one in the 33rd, when De Gea punched his attempt from 24 yards over the bar - before Pogba struck.

The biggest compliment you could pay Dalot was that he did not look like a teenager making his senior debut for one of the biggest clubs in the world. A good start for him in the red shirt.

After two run-outs with the Under-23s, United's new £19 million full-back was thrown in at the deep end on a hard pitch in front of a hostile crowd on a big European night.

The United goalkeeper was called into action again to tip over Mohamed Ali Camara's fizzing long-range drive before Marcus Rashford clipped an effort against the outside of the post as United belatedly woke from their slumber.
