How Jose is keeping his United squad focused

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is demanding more in training from Paul Pogba.

Pogba had been coming off the back of a awful run of form - although Carrick had some words of encouragement for him prior to kick-off as he knows just how much ability the player has.

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick has revealed what he said to Paul Pogba before the recent Manchester derby as the latter inspired the Red Devils to a brilliant comeback victory.

"If I was you, I would go why Lukaku plays every match, why [Nemanja] Matic plays every match, you always go to the one [who doesn't play]".

Having faced plenty of criticism heading into a crunch clash with Premier League champions-elect Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, the French midfielder picked the best possible fixture in which to rediscover his spark.

"I just kept it simple and said "this is what you are" and "this is what you're good at"," Carrick told Sky Sports about his chat with Pogba.

After seeing United fall behind to leave themselves in danger of being unwelcome guests at a raucous title party, Pogba produced a two-goal showing to turn the tie on its head and inspire a stunning 3-2 victory.

"I'm glad I did [have an impact] because it shows little things do register with players". It was clear that their fans were a truly loyal bunch, and it must have been a tough time to support them - especially when, after just two seasons in the second tier (then called Division 1), they were relegated again in 1998, down to the third tier for the first time in their history. "I tried to raise the level of training and I think I managed to do it because I am really pleased with this week". It looks easier than it obviously is, but of course it's not easy.

"I think he has to keep that stability and with that stability will appear the special match like it happened against City". We can not have 11 players - it would be wonderful, also economically for the football clubs - to have only 11 players and play always with the same 11 and no injuries or suspensions or fatigue and nothing, it would be better for everyone but it is not possible.
