Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has thrown his full support behind coach Jose Mourinho and said criticism that he is prone to play defensively against the big clubs does not "reflect the truth."
Paul Pogba is Manchester United's best outfield player, Romelu Lukaku is the club's top scorer, David De Gea is considered so good that Real Madrid try to sign him every other season and Zlatan Ibrahimovic remains hugely popular toward the end of his career. Meanwhile, Nemanja Matic doesn't make mistakes and Antonio Valencia has been the most pleasing surprise of the last two seasons.
However, it's young forwards Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, aged 20 and 21 respectively, who really excite...
It's a different Manchester United with Paul Pogba. Against Newcastle United, his range of passing, his ability to protect the ball and his athleticism were qualities that were missed when he was gone.
Now, Jose Mourinho has many more options in terms of what he does with his front four because Pogba's presence allows you to do things -- like play Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford together -- you might not do with Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic sitting in front of the back four.
