Barcelona Ace Worried about Manchester United duo

Ahead of their UEFA Champions League clash against Manchester United, Barcelona forward Philippe Coutinho has identified Paul Pogba, David de Gea and Romelu Lukaku as dangermen in the clash.

United host five-time Champions League winners Barcelona on Wednesday 10th April before the return leg at the Camp Nou six days later.

Lukaku was instrumental in the tie, bagging a brace as he aided United to a 3-1 victory that enabled them to overturn a 2-0 home loss. 

Speaking ahead of the contest, Coutinho revealed that Lukaku and Pogba pose a huge threat to Barcelona, “It’s complicated to describe what you have to do to win against this team. For a start, Manchester United have a great goalkeeper and huge players in attack. Pogba and Lukaku are capable of hurting any defense and Pogba, in ­particular, is a great player.

“We will have to be very careful to stop him because he can generate a lot of problems for us and I think the duel with Pique [and Lukaku] will be important in both matches.”
