Jose Mourinho: 'Romelu Lukaku to return in a week'

  • No one can touch Jesse Lingard in Man Utd training says Ander Herrera

After United's triumph on Monday at Everton, when Manchester beat Everton 2-0 in round 22 of the Premier League, Mourinho responded to Scholes' comments with his usual sarcastic tone. "It's just the way football is", he sneered.

"Paul (Pogba) tries to do his best all the time".

"I think they (ex-players turned pundits) would love to be here, in the club and that's a problem that I can not resolve".

Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard capped a attractive United game with sublime goals to get a 2-0 win at the Goodison Park.

And following Manchester United's 0-0 draw with Southampton at the weekend, he made a decision to aim his criticism at Pogba.

According to Mourinho, United are actually more dynamic and play with more freedom without Lukaku and Ibrahimovic. The Belgian striker sustained a head injury and was stretchered off during United's draw against Southampton on Saturday, 30 December.

The 25-year-old has started eight of those nine games, hastening the demise of Henrikh Mkhitaryan's United career, and Herrera admitted even his own teammates have trouble stopping Lingard in training.

I think Scholes will be in history as a phenomenal player, not as a pundit.

Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho has hit out at midfield legend Paul Scholes over his recent comments about Paul Pogba.

While he named Scholes as one of the best midfielders he has ever seen, the United boss mockingly suggested that Scholes would love to be as successful a manager as he has been. "If he's 25 percent, he'll be quite happy".

He's somewhat silenced his haters following his display, with Mourinho leaping to his defence.

Jesse Lingard has easily been one of Manchester United's most lethal attacking threats this season, despite not always being the go-to player when the Red Devils were in desperate need of goals. 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. We do enough with the gaffer on the training ground two or three days before the game.

United arrived at Goodison Park without a win in their previous four matches, having been held to Premier League draws by Leicester, Burnley and Southampton after losing at Bristol City in the Carabao Cup. United's win saw them move back up into second place ahead of Chelsea, who travel to Arsenal on Wednesday night.
