Lingard added to Anthony Martial's opener at Goodison Park to secure three points for Manchester United, which saw them return to second in the Premier League.

After the game, United manager Jose Mourinho returned fire on Scholes, and did so in a scathing manner. "He criticises - which is a different thing", Mourinho said on Scholes' assessment of Pogba's form via BBC.

"I think Jesse has made that jump".

"Paul tries to do his best all the time", he said. Sometimes he doesn't play so well. "I think Scholes will be in the history books as a phenomenal player, but not as a pundit". Fifty per cent is 12-and-a-half silverware, 25 per cent is around six (trophies).

Manchester United's top scorer Romelu Lukaku is expected to be out for a week, boss Jose Mourinho has said.

Ander Herrera believes Manchester United can take many positives from the first game of 2018 - the 2-0 victory at Everton.

Pogba had a quite 2016/17 season, with many pundits lauding the Frenchman for not living up to the high expectations that comes with a multi-million dollar transfer fee. Instead, United climbed to second above Chelsea, which plays Arsenal on Wednesday. "They would love to be at the club and that's a problem I can not resolve".

Paul Pogba recorded a stunning statistic following the Premier League victory at Everton, while proving his value for Manchester United. He is just strolling through games.

"Pogba doesn't look fit, I wonder whether he is training properly".

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. On the back of some disappointing results and performances, Martial's goal was vital and his cool demeanour, which may mean he doesn't smile as much as people want, allowed him to thrive under the pressure by getting the goal United needed.

The Portuguese manager did recently respond to Paul's comments on his side and although it was a little feisty he didn't say anything untrue.

Lukaku, United's marquee signing fo 2017, collapsed in a heap after an accidental clash of heads with Southampton defender Wesley Hoedt and had to be be stretchered off with oxygen support and many feared the burly striker would be a long-term casualty.
