Quinton Fortune: 'Manchester United back on the way up under Jose Mourinho'

Quinton Fortune: 'Manchester United back on the way up under Jose Mourinho'

Pogba returned to the Red Devils' starting line-up, however, for their 2-1 win against Chelsea at Old Trafford last Sunday, where the 24-year-old France worldwide showed signs of improvement in his role in central midfield. All four are in the Champions League still so we have other focus, other targets, all of us.

United became a byword for success under Sir Alex Ferguson, but things went awry after the Scot retired as a Premier League champion in 2013. Ander Herrera is still out due to a muscular injury. Marouane Fellaini should be back within a couple of weeks after undergoing a slight operation last month.

Mourinho said it is not clear whether he will retire from football for good in the summer.

Before then the Frenchman had been ill, out of form and dropped in the space of a week with many reporting a falling out with his manager and questions over his future at Old Trafford.

United have often been hit this season by the supposedly weaker teams as Mourinho's team have failed to bring their "A" game in these games.

"They are going to have to lose every single game and we're going to have to win every single game, but the signs are there for next season and there's still a lot to play for this season".

They could do with more goals out of Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha over the remainder of the campaign, with the front pair having grabbed a total of six league strikes between them all season compared to midfielder Luca Milivojevic's seven. Due to loan rules, Fosu-Mensah, who has been playing phenomenally well, won't be eligible to start against his parent club.

"Zlatan - we all think it's his last season at Manchester United and will be a very personal decision for him to play or to stop", Mourinho said in his usual press conference.

And while United legend Neville wants to see Mourinho continue doing a good job at his former club, he has already picked out his successor in his head.

Paul Pogba has scored in both of his Premier League games against Crystal Palace - they're now the only team he's scored both home and away against in the competition.
