Manchester United reclaimed second place from Chelsea on the English Premiership League, EPL, table after securing a fairly easy 2-0 win against a surprisingly hapless Everton at Goodison Park on Monday, New Year's Day.
In BT Sport's coverage of United's 0-0 draw with Southampton, Martin Keown ludicrously suggested the manager had lost the dressing room, while Paul Scholes, on the same panel, suggested Paul Pogba had "strolled" through the game. We had to stop him to play because he was saying, 'I feel awesome, I should go and play, ' but... we decided not to play (him).
And the fact that Zlatan Ibrahimovic was also ruled out for the entire month of January meant that United were light in the forwards department but Mourinho was confident that his players will adjust.
"Jesse Lingard - one thing is to be a young talent, another thing is to be a very good player".
The Class of 92 was made of a number of players but are mostly known for the club legends such as the Neville brothers, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham.
After United's first win in four Pogba said'We just had to wake up and today I think we did
United stepped up a gear and two minutes later Paul Pogba's speculative strike from distance took a slight nick off Davies as it dropped just wide of the far post. I think Scholes will be in history as a phenomenal player, not as a pundit. Michael Carrick played in pre-season but I don't remember him playing during the season so we have problems. Fifty per cent of that is 12.5 silverware, 25 per cent is around six. "There are 25 titles, so 25 percent would be about 6 titles, which would be very good", Mourinho concluded.
He finally returned to United in 2015 and played a decent role under Louis Van Gaal.
"The prestige of this club is based on people like him, so successful here", he said.
Ryan Giggs has insisted that his former club, Manchester United must accept the fact that they "cannot compete" with rivals Manchester City. Paul Pogba teed up Martial on the edge of the area and he stroked a sublime finish into the top corner for his ninth goal of the season. The player they bought.
"I think they'd have to win every game between now and the end of the season, which is virtually impossible, and expect City to lose quite a few games, which also looks pretty unlikely".
