Five Premier League clubs are involved in this season's competition and it looks likely that they will all finish top of their groups going into the final group game in December.

Manchester United's only home defeat against a team in their debut Premier League season came in 1996/97, losing 2-3 against Derby County.

The win over Newcastle means that United have collected 26 points in the Premier League this season, although just four points now separate Jose Mourinho's side from seventh-placed Burnley after 12 matches of the 2017-18 campaign.

Pogba was particularly impressive in United's attack, returning after more than two months out with a hamstring injury by scoring a goal and recording an assist during the 4-1 win at Old Trafford last week. After 12 games they have won eight times, drawn twice and lost twice, yielding 26 points so far. "But these are the days you've worked so hard for as a team and it's what we got promoted for", he added.

"I'd sign up now to win every game 1-0 at home".

The United manager added that striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will also feature today, his third match in a row following a career-threatening knee injury.

"So far we've fared well this season and we'll have to play at a good-enough level to do so again".

Jose Mourinho: "I don't know who is more ambitious than us".

And by taking a philosophy of one game at a time, City can still be caught due to the unpredictable nature of the Premier League, says Herrera.

"I just think the key is definitely not starting slowly", added the England worldwide.

"What we hope to do is to make a good account of ourselves there and we hope we can do that".

"I think against Newcastle in the first half we were a bit too open because of how freely we were trying to play", he told MUTV.

"Do not think about the opponents, the rest of the games, just think about Brighton now, then Watford and then Arsenal".
