Rafa Benitez: Paul Pogba not at Steven Gerrard level

Rafa Benitez: Paul Pogba not at Steven Gerrard level

"Then obviously the second goal gave them a lift, and then it was more hard in the second half", Benitez told BT Sport.

"When he was injured I made a decision to close my mouth, we can not be crying, we have to find solutions".

Rafa Benitez was forced to watch as Pogba left Isaac Hayden for dead to stand a cross up for Anthony Martial's goal and he also left the former Arsenal man lagging behind as he strolled onto Marcus Rashford's knock-down to score.

Club-record signing Pogba suffered a hamstring problem after he scored two goals and made two assists in his opening four Premier League games.

Newcastle counterpart Rafael Benitez felt conceding a second goal just before the break was crucial to his side's chances of getting anything from the game.

Newcastle had threatened to cause a huge shock when they took the lead in the 14th minute through Dwight Gayle's smart finish past goalkeeper David de Gea.

"We knew that was a massive difference between both teams. I'm a believer, we keep fighting".

His replacement Lukaku scored the fourth against Newcastle, ending a run of seven games without a goal for the Red Devils. Asked about his faster than expected recovery from injury, Ibrahimovic later compared himself to a lion. Manchester United are still within eight points of the runaway leaders and the lead up to Christmas will have a significant say in who wins the Premier League this season.

"I think we can chase City, why is it not a possibility?"

There is no doubting the boost that having four important players returning from injury has brought, giving Mourinho options all over the field.

"I think coming with that big price tag early on has weighed him down a bit and Manchester United weren't in the rhythm but I think now they've found his best position".

But then you play Newcastle United against Manchester United, so different levels and different teams.
