Jose Mourinho laments United’s struggle to take chances and keep clean sheets

"They created chances, we created chances and they got that penalty which was a bit soft".

To spare Pogba's embarrassment, the rebound broke kindly for the midfielder who tapped it calmly into the open net, but he still received jeers from some sections of the United support.

Pogba at least netted the rebound after a stunning save from Jordan Pickford appeared to have punished him for a freaky, stuttering run-up that featured 26 steps. "I am in good form in this moment, so I have to train hard and continue to help the team".

Pogba took a mammoth 28 steps before striking the ball. "He showed that in the World Cup". I don't like that, I like the player that I want to take it.

Jose Mourinho highlighted Manchester United's lack of "killer instinct" in front of goal and the low number of clean sheets this season as areas of concern.

"Well, against Juventus to give him [Lukaku] a break, I don't think [Michael] Carrick can play as a striker", Mourinho said.

"He can think what he wants, I'm sorry. I was unfortunate. You have to go a tad early because he has so much power but unfortunately it just bounced back out".




Speaking about Pogba to Sky Italia, Nedved said he it would be wonderful if they could have the World Cup victor in their squad. "Maybe I should practise to change it, if the keepers know my step".

"There's been lots of matches in which he's not scored a goal, and not just scoring but also the performances, the happiness in the performances, I think is the problem".

Mata, unsurprisingly, was becoming more and more influential and another fine ball played Pogba in with Pickford again saving low down to concede a corner that came to nothing.

"I don't like Mickey Mouses: fragile, afraid to go, I don't take penalties".

True enough. Pogba has been involved in more Manchester United goals (31) since the start of the 2016/17 season than any other player, with 14 goals and 17 assists to his name.

"We dug in as a group and we nearly got something out of the game".

The French forward, who reportedly rejected the club's offer of a contract extension this week, won the penalty for Paul Pogba's opener and curled in a splendid goal of his own after half-time.
