José Mourinho reveals what Lukaku said before Everton match

"But he wanted to play, we had to stop him to play because he was saying, 'I feel wonderful, I I should go and play.' But to follow the protocol and to protect the player, we decided he wouldn't play".

Martial has started just 11 Premier League games this season, making a total of 19 appearances, yet has seven goals and three assists to his name.

"Overall, I don't think the performance was too bad apart that 20-minute or so spell in the second half".

Pogba added that wherever he plays on the pitch, "I'm playing for Manchester United, and that gives me a smile".

Jose Mourinho is unsure if Manchester United will be active during the ongoing January transfer window after admitting that the team are in trouble at the moment owing to their growing injury list.

Mourinho knows Scholes would love to be employed by United - because he said so.

The 43-year-old former England worldwide, working as a pundit for BT Sport, questioned Pogba's fitness and attitude, as well as the position he was being played in. As a player he was phenomenal, but it doesn't mean we all have to be phenomenal.

"Romelu is not a problem, maybe Romelu can play [on Friday]", Mourinho said in his post-match briefing on Monday, as quoted by Sky Sports.

"If Paul [Scholes] decides to be a manager one day, I wish that he can be 25% as successful as myself".

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.

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

Martial curled the ball into the top corner from the edge of the area in the 57th minute after impressive play from Paul Pogba as Jose Mourinho's stuttering side finally came alive after the break following an uninspiring first-half display. "He gave so much to my club that I only can thank him for that because the prestige of this club is based on people like him". 50% of that is 12.5 silverware, 25% is around 6.

Fans voted Paul Pogba as the man of the match after the victory. "If he is 25% he will be quite happy".

"I believe you make the decisions but I also believe that some clubs or some managers have good friends in the right chairs and I don't have them".
