  • Manchester United ace Paul Pogba has been backed to win the PFA Player of the Year

As Martial scored his fourth and the final goal of the game - the third in a devastating four-minute spell as United racked up the numbers - the camera panned towards an inert Mourinho nodding his head approving of the result, even failing to notice one of his assistants trying to congratulate him in a celebratory manner.

When the going got tough for United last season, Mourinho often hinted that Martial was one of the fall-guys who went missing and his omission from key games in the second half of last season combined with public criticisms of the player highlighted the mistrust he developed in his young forward.

"We had a conversation about his future here", he confirmed.

Swedish defender Victor Lindelof was supposed to be that man but he has made a slow start to life at Old Trafford and Mourinho is now preferring Phil Jones.

As if it is not bad enough that their record at Wembley is rotten - they have lost eight of their last 11 games there - they have to play at the national stadium all season, while their new stadium is developed. "All positive. We're using him well and he has the right attitude". Two periods of 20 minutes, scoring two goals - it's good for his confidence. "They see the speed, they see the danger, they think probably they can affect him".

"We want to win a lot of trophies together at United and we also want to win the World Cup with France", Martial told MUTV. It brought the footballing world to remember what the Frenchman can do at his very best, within a system that supports him. The midfielder was able to refine his game to remain on the pitch and do what he does best, the composure of his work in the attacking play was noticeable. I need a squad.

Another United player who has started the season strongly is Henrikh Mkhitaryan. "We took a lot of confidence from last week into this, but we're not getting carried away", said Jones.

"I made some offensive changes because I don't want to be a coach happy to lose 1-0 at home, but we ended up playing to their strengths and they punished us". "That French language little group we have - [Marouane] Fellaini, Paul [Pogba], [Romelu] Lukaku - it's a group he's very well integrated with". He loves football and you could see here that when he is enjoying his football he creates assists.
