Jose Mourinho: 'Manchester United deserve to be second'

Speaking on the perceived rift, Pogba said, "It's true [being benched] has never happened to me, but it can strengthen me".

Romelu Lukaku scored the 100th goal of his English Premier League career after just five minutes while Alexis Sanchez capped off arguably his best performance in a United jersey with a goal 15 minutes later.

It remains to be seen if United will take on bitter rivals and neighbours Manchester City like they did in Houston last summer. What is important for me is that since the moment we left first position and went to second, we stayed there for the whole of the season. We deserve to finish second, despite what you say, the criticisms you want to make.

"This isn't a game, this is our living and we need to win, and I think Paul's got to get that a bit more into his character".

Mourinho recalled Paul Pogba to the starting XI for the win over Swansea, after the France global had been left out of the line-up for the previous three games against Liverpool, Sevilla and Brighton and Hove Albion.

The chopper can transport either 36 armed soldiers internally or 4,500 kg load on a sling. The crash was attributed to the disengagement of the helicopter's tail rotor.

"Everyone expects you to win, and when you don't, people who aren't United fans talk so much about you and they love to see you lose". It's not me who picks the team.

However, the player himself has now broken his silence about his situation by insisting that everything is OK between him and Mourinho. I think the mentality of the journalists needs to be more positive too.

Reports the France worldwide could depart in summer just two years after his world-record arrival have intensified in recent weeks. "He's a very humble guy, very good player, [we're] very pleased with him".
