Dalot impressed for their Europa League win at Young Boys.

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has had a light jab at Paul Pogba for his ridiculously long run up prior to his penalty goal against Young Boys in United's Champions League opener on Wednesday.

The youngster was lively on both sides of the pitch and looked threatening on the flanks because of his ability to put good crosses inside the penalty box.

After suffering back-to-back defeats, United have won their last three games, with Mourinho hailing the team's improvement defensively for ending their losing streak.

"When they are players you always have players you have a little bit of a feeling they can become managers, but I don't think even then think about it, that team at Porto." he said.

"Hopefully he has given the manager some difficulties but yes, great performance from a young player".

"He took it all on board and when he came out last night, I did say to him afterward, 'I think you could win after that'".

His latest goals take his tally for the season to four and the midfielder will be hoping to add to that in United's home clash with Wolves this Saturday. "He's a very good player".

"I think the team is more compact, more solid".

Instead of praising Pogba's performance, however, Graham Souness criticised the France World Cup victor, urged him to change his attitude and start focusing on football. To play for Manchester United is hard enough for a kid of 19 years old coming from another country and after an important injury [to a knee] and surgery.

"I wonder if he trains properly every day, that is a stab at the dark at something that could improve. It is also about getting the right ones and I think they've got good young players and got also good experienced, stable players". "He doesn't need to face more hard". "Small things, but nothing important, so I would say Marcos Rojo is the one that is still not training with the team and Ander Herrera is not ready to play, but is in the final phase of his recovery process".

Mourinho will be without suspended Marcus Rashford and Nemanja Matic against Wolves, who have lost just one of their first five matches to sit ninth in the table.
