Mourinho unsure about Pogba's availability for Sevilla game


During the match Michael Owen said on BT Sport that he would rather play for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp than his United counterpart Jose Mourinho.

However, Rashford's teammate Jesse Lingard insists United are developing the 20-year-old just fine.

Nemanja Matic agrees that victory against bitter rivals Liverpool is a timely boost ahead of the Sevilla clash.

"I wouldn't go so far as saying it was a flawless performance".

Lovren contributed two elementary blunders that burned Liverpool before Bailly's own-goal interjection nearly gave them a way out of the hole they dug for themselves in the first 25 minutes.

"One of them (Carragher) was for sure, a full-back from time to time when he was young".

Mourinho's second-place squad moved five points clear of Liverpool in the Premier League, thanks to Marcus Rashford's first half double at Old Trafford. Of course he was fundamental.

"In the situations around the two goals, it was not like it should be - you can not leave a player alone".

"And one of my good qualities as coach was always to know my team's weaknesses very well and sometimes I tried to hide them and sometimes I have to try to compensate them with other things".

"I think Martin Atkinson (the fourth official) after so many years of this, I think made the right decision". "He is improving a lot in training".

"Lukaku was confident from experience that could be dominant towards Lovren", United manager Jose Mourinho said.

He scored some breathtaking goals for Man United and some eagle-eyed fans have noticed that he scored an nearly identical goal to Rashford's. all the way back in 2007.

But one knock-on effect of Rashford's impressive performance is a problem for Mourinho, in terms of Paul Pogba. The injury? It was contact with a player in the last minute of the training session. "That's why I don't like the winter market very much".

"We had also the possibility of the long ball to Scott McTominay and to play against (Andy) Robertson in the air", revealed Mourinho, who appears to be bucking the trend of aversion to direct football. He was upset with a player and the same happened to me against Crystal Palace where I was upset with my player and therefore they (the officials) understood that too.
