Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku set to return for FA Cup opener

Paul Scholes says Jose Mourinho cannot complain about Manchester United not spending enough

Manchester United's Jesse Lingard scored his seventh goal in nine Premier League games in Monday's win against Everton.

United's five-game winless run came to an end on New Years day and Pogba could not have been happier. "It's just the way football is", he sneered.

"Sometimes Pogba plays very well, sometimes he plays well and sometimes he doesn't play well". "Some people think they have to be at the club but that's a problem I can not solve".

This was prompted by Pogba's performance in United's 2-0 demolition of Everton at Goodison Park where he was named Man of the Match.

And following Manchester United's 0-0 draw with Southampton at the weekend, he chose to aim his criticism at Pogba. "I had not one more player to select, even Chris Smalling was on the bench but he could only play in an emergency situation".

With draws against Leicester, Burnley and Southampton over the past week, the festive period has been disappointing for United and the title is likely out of reach.

"Our pride, our effort, everything was top class and on top of it we played very well", he said.

United boss Jose Mourinho, however, has all but confirmed that the 24-year-old will be fit to take on Stoke at Old Trafford in two weeks.

Scholes would rather pass on his wisdom to United's young players as a coach, like he'd have been allowed to do at the major continental clubs who value their former idols. If Paul one day decides to be a manager, I wish that he can be 25 per cent as successful as myself.

The Portuguese also revealed that Romelu Lukaku, who was stretchered off against Southampton, did not suffer a concussion and will be available for selection for United's FA Cup third-round tie with Derby on Friday.

"These boys, they jump or they don't jump", United manager Jose Mourinho said.

"I believe you make the decisions but I also believe that some clubs or some managers have good friends in the right chairs and I don't have them".

"For it to happen, they both need to be in their best moment and they are not", said Mourinho.

Lingard was unsafe throughout and got the goal he deserved, his seventh in his last nine league games, to show why he is now keeping Henrikh Mkhitaryan out of the team. In the 81st minute, Jesse Lingard added to Martial's strike to take United provisionally above Chelsea into second place in the Premier League standings and ease the pressure on Mourinho.
