Souness: 'Schoolboy' Pogba doesn't understand how to play his position

Rafael Benitez

'It's true. I think it's the only stadium in the Premier League (I have not won at) - also Huddersfield but I played there only once.

But Mourinho says he has made a concerted effort to improve his behaviour on the sidelines, although he admits he can not be described as flawless just yet.

Newcastle showed their defensive solidarity after going up and their debutant goalkeeper Dubravka was one of the standouts.

Now sat second in the table, although United may hold a five-point gap over third-place Liverpool, Mourinho's men are already 13 points adrift of runaway league leaders Manchester City.

"He's been free of minor injuries for a few months which sometimes stops the evolution, and I'm really happy". I like the Geordies.

"I was trying that with the simplicity of Michael Carrick because he tries to make everything simple and bring Alexis [Sanchez] close to an area to [Romelu] Lukaku where he could be like a second striker to try to win the game".

You know how it felt to be sitting/standing watching on as a fan, never mind being Rafa Benitez who we are all counting on to perform minor miracles this season.

Graeme Souness has defended his criticisms of Paul Pogba and believes the Manchester United midfielder has failed to develop his game since arriving at Old Trafford.

'I hope tomorrow the result is different, but I know that the characteristics of the game are not going to be different.

"I think it's hard, honestly, I've always felt handsome matches but hard".

Between them, Given and Harper have over 600 appearances under their belts between the sticks for the Magpies, and appear mightily impressed with the club's latest acquisition. Normally good players, normally good managers. Benitez, another example. It is hard to understand [Newcastle's problems].

Asked for his take on Pogba's contribution, fellow Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry said: "When you have quality, people always expect you to do wonders and the price-tag doesn't help at times. They know how to get the points to stay in the division".

Forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned to training but will not be considered, while Eric Bailly and Marouane Fellaini are long-term absentees.
