Pogba warns 'big games' lie in wait for resurgent Manchester United

Pogba warns 'big games' lie in wait for resurgent Manchester United Paul Pogba said greater challenges lay ahead of Manchester United after scoring twice in a 3-0 win away to Premier League strugglers Fulham on Saturday. The France midfielder fired United into an early lead and, after Anthony Martial made it 2-0, wrapped up the win with a second-half penalty at Craven Cottage. Victory continued United's revival under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they climbed into fourth in the Premier League, one point above Chelsea, who face Manchester City on Sunday. By contrast, United were 11 points adrift of the top four when Jose Mourinho was sacked as their manager in December.

Edinson Cavani will miss Tuesday's opening round-of-16 squabble with Manchester United with a hip injury.

The frontman suffered the issue in Paris Saint-Germain's 1-0 win over Bordeaux on Saturday. He joins teammates Neymar and Thomas Meunier in the list of absentees for the first leg at Old Trafford.

"Neymar is our key player - one of the best in Europe," manager Thomas Tuchel said during Monday's press conference, as reported by ESPN's Jonathan Johnson. "Edinson Cavani will also be missing, so yes, of course, those absences weaken us."
