"I think he will be a player we have high hopes for, definitely".

"Manchester City have money, they have bought big players" - Jose Mourinho has been harping the same tune for a while but there's an unsung hero who is finally raising his game in the time of need.

The Englishman scored both goals on Boxing Day as United came from 2-0 down to rescue a home draw against Burnley, including an injury-time equaliser.

United actually looked OK going forward without Lukaku and Ibrahimovic and now Mourinho has dropped a surprise truth bomb about his two strikers. "I know in this moment we are in trouble, but maybe in two or three weeks we recover more players and we think differently and wait until the summer to try things, but I can not say now".

After a disappointing first-half display at Goodison Park, United was dominant after halftime with Paul Pogba — playing in a more attacking role — at the heart of everything for the visitors.

"Not every one of us has to be phenomenal like he was as a player". Mourinho also praised former England midfielder Scholes, who was one of United's key players when they dominated the Premier League under Alex Ferguson between 1992 and 2013.

WHEN they gave Paul Scholes a football, he made it talk with his imagination and intelligence, lighting up lives as the greatest footballers do.

Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard grabbed the second-half goals which settled the contest but it was Pogba who was the beating heart of their renaissance after a lifeless first 45 minutes.

"It would not be wrong to say that Mourinho views some of the members of the Class of '92 with suspicion, however". Instead, United climbed to second above Chelsea, which plays Arsenal on Wednesday. "If Paul (Scholes) one day decides to be a manager, I wish that he can be 25 per cent as successful as myself". If he's 25%, he'll be quite happy. The deal never materialised and Martial has started this season showing the form that made him so popular in his debut campaign at the club.

United have bought the positivity of ex-players for years by making them club "ambassadors".

That's a wealth of experience for players still so young and with so much room for improvement. Paul Pogba teed up Martial on the edge of the area and he stroked a sublime finish into the top corner for his ninth goal of the season.
