Steven Gerrard names two Man United stars who have the 'X-factor'

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is enjoying life at the club and says he is open to extending his four-year stay at Old Trafford.

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

Steven Gerrard has talked up the importance of Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic for Manchester United.

"But this is a different level now and we have to raise our game".

Jose Mourinho's United has been unbeaten since, while Hughton hopes his team will continue their unbeaten run in the last five league games.

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. "We managed to give him 15/20 minutes in both matches, he needs more of that, so hopefully, tomorrow, we play him again".

"They are important players in every position of the pitch", said Herrera. Of course, they are eight points shy of Manchester City at the top, but they seem to be the best-placed side to challenge their inter-city rivals, and Jose Mourinho will be counting on the incredibly competitive nature of the Premier League to force City into dropping some points along the way.

"He [Ibrahimovic] feels like a kid to be back".

"Man City are very strong so far, but the Premier League always gives you the chance to catch them".

Manchester United will be bidding to return to winning ways after a disappointing midweek Champions League result when they host Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday. "We just have to focus on ourselves in matches", he said.

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

"I'm happy here. The club is massive, the support we have is massive".

"We are in the League Cup quarter-finals, we have done well so far and in the Champions League, we have 12 points in five games, which is good".
