The England worldwide continued his rich vein of form with a seventh Premier League goal of the campaign in Manchester United's 2-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park on New Year's Day.

Pogba was United's star man as he claimed two assists - setting up Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard for second-half goals - but the Frenchman was pleased with how the team performed as a whole.

Where is the Paul Pogba we saw at Juventus?

Manchester United travelled to Goodison Park to face Everton and José Mourinho revealed what Lukaku told him before the clash with his former club.

The Englishman scored both goals on Boxing Day as United came from 2-0 down to rescue a home draw against Burnley, including an injury-time equaliser.

United now sit at the second place in the Premier League table, 12 points behind their rivals Manchester City - having played one extra game than City and third-placed Chelsea. I think Scholes will be in the history books as a phenomenal player, but not as a pundit'. We have a fantastic relationship, we give our best, we try to do well always and when we don't we stick together and fight.

According to the Daily Mail, United bosses are unhappy with Mourinho after he lashed out at the club's lack of spending and inability to compete with Manchester City. "I think the only thing Paul Scholes does is criticise", said Mourinho. When I look at games, I know where Pogba should be. That followed suit under Jose and this year, he has finally stitched together a series of key performances that has seen him start more games than the much fancied Armenian in Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

"No-one in England should be getting near him, but he is being asked to do a role he is not comfortable in".

The manager also took more direct aim at former Man U. footballer-turned-pundit Paul Scholes, who criticised Paul Pogba, writing: "I think the only thing Paul Scholes does is to criticise".

As the immortal Wayne Gretzky famously said, "you miss 100% of the shots that you don't take", so Lingard should just keep firing away.

"I think we played very well".

Mourinho said: "If Paul [Scholes] one day decides to be a manager I wish that he can be 25 per-cent as successful as myself, because 25 per-cent of 25 is six trophies".
