Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that the natural outcome of Luke Shaw's impressive performances of late is that he will be offered a new contract.

Mourinho said that some sections of the media do not understand it, with many claiming Pogba needs to be attacking and only attacking - but the former Chelsea manager made it clear that "box to box" means covering both boxes, and managed to have a dig at the "experts" as well. "It;'s hard to play a midfielder with more potential than Paul".

Providing an injury update on the rest of his squad, Benitez added: " [Jesus] Gamez is getting better but still we have to wait. I got a bit confused.

"They have a good team and I think they had a good transfer window, with Kenedy and (Islam) Slimani, two players I know very well, who can really improve the team".

"I lost and drew a few times". "I feel very well".

Pogba has scored three goals in 16 Premier League appearances this season, contributing nine assists, and Mourinho rejected suggestions the France worldwide should be offering more to the team due to his EUR105million transfer fee. I have seen a lot of teams playing with the [defensive] line on the penalty spot and the midfielders on the edge of the box, and they were doing a fantastic job.

"He's not a striker so when people ask what position he plays, he is a midfield player, it depends on the tactical system, he can play with one, two or three, but he is always a midfield player".

Last week, the manager had confirmed that long-term absentees Zlatan and Eric Bailly were taking part in on-pitch training, but away from the rest of their first-team colleagues. "The week was not different to what Paul is every week". He works well, he's a good professional He likes to train.

The Spaniard's tactics against Premier League leaders Manchester City when they visited St James' Park in December were roundly criticised by television pundits as excessively negative, although they eventually lost 1-0 and very almost snatched a draw.
