Last weekend Paul Pogba scored two second half goals to help Manchester United rally from down 2-0 and beat Manchester City 3-2, delaying their arch-rivals from clinching the Premier League title (at least for the time being).

"No, I would prefer to lose this match and win the title, honestly", he said.

Now the United boss has called on Pogba to produce more displays like that - and he says the hard work must start in training at Carrington.

Pogba's form, particularly since the January signing of Alexis Sanchez, has been one of the fascinating sub-plots of United's season with the player reportedly unhappy at the defensive responsibilities he has been asked to perform.

"When things go wrong, people don't think twice and have a go at us", the former Real Madrid coach told Sky Sports. "We are not going to do anything insane", said Mourinho.

Pogba's efforts at the Etihad allowed United to record a seventh consecutive victory in domestic games in what is becoming a strong end to the season, only marred by the disappointing surrender to Sevilla in the Champions League last 16. "I think that we have given proof of what this group is - it is a group of good guys".

And it was revealed that last season the teenager impressed his famous dad with his analysis of United's defeats.

"Last season we finished sixth and this season we are going to finish, hopefully, second".
