Paul Pogba's Positive Influence At Manchester United Reflected In Stunning Stat

Pogba Something has to change at Manchester United

These inflammatory remarks in the immediate aftermath of the Old Trafford club's clash with Everton on New Year's Day are sure to further divide opinion on the player in question, however in statistical terms, it is extremely hard to argue against the 24-year-old having a positive contribution to the United starting XI.

"I think the only thing Paul Scholes does is criticise", said Mourinho. That does not mean that we all have to be phenomenal. The change in style of play - led by their talisman Paul Pogba - in a more advanced role surely helped the visitors.

Much of this criticism has been to do with just how expensive he was at the time (£89.3 million) and whether or not he has truly warranted this fee. "Sometimes he plays very well, sometimes he plays well, sometimes he doesn't play so well".

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

'The players are giving everything like they have done from the first minute of the season.

"It's not Paul's fault that he made much more money than Paul Scholes".

The United manager, who won at Goodison thanks to superb goals from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard, both of which were set up by Pogba, also believes that Scholes has a desire to break into management.

Everton, meanwhile, are boosted by the return of Wayne Rooney, who has recovered completely from his illness.

"50 per cent of that is 12.5 silverware, 25 per cent is around six".

And José Mourinho has his say: "We have no No9 but the spirit is good and the team are playing well without getting the results". Spurs can close the gap to one point if they win their two games in hand and Arsenal can move within three points of United if - and it's a big if - they beat Chelsea at home in two days' time. Their previous Premier League games against Leicester City, Burnley and even Southampton have failed to give them the full three points.

United will next host Derby in a FA Cup fixture on January 6.
