Paul Pogba's presence in Man United squad offers Jose Mourinho options

It's a different Manchester United with Paul Pogba. Against Newcastle United, his range of passing, his ability to protect the ball and his athleticism were qualities that were missed when he was gone.

Now, Jose Mourinho has many more options in terms of what he does with his front four because Pogba's presence allows you to do things -- like play Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford together -- you might not do with Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic sitting in front of the back four.

And if that wasn't enough, United's manager has another huge option (literally) in the form of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The combinations, frankly, are endless, whether it's playing him in the hole or alongside Romelu Lukaku -- or, indeed, in place of the Belgian striker in some situations.

This is a front-wheel drive team and that's not something to which we've been accustomed with Mourinho. He tried it earlier this season, before Pogba's injury, with mixed results and it will be interesting to see what he conjures up.

For all the talk of him being defensive, Mourinho is, above all, a pragmatist. And pragmatism, with this set of players, suggests taking the game to the opposition more than he's done in the past.
