Lukaku and United have endured a hard start to the season, but the 25-year-old has still managed four goals in eight appearances.

Sanchez, who endured a hard start to the new season, has scored three goals for United in all competitions so far.

There's talk of Pogba's compatriot Zinedine Zidane replacing Mourinho in the Old Trafford hotseat, but it appears the Portuguese has got a stay of execution with United's comeback win over Newcastle United on the weekend.

"It's hard to concentrate, to start again, to hit hard, because we touched the stars", he told AFP.


Eden Hazard joked about wanting Romelu Lukaku's form to begin and end with Belgium following the Manchester United man's brace in the win over Switzerland.

"We like challenges too, we have goals". For example, I've never won the Premier League, that's an objective. "I'd like to do that".

"I think he is the right coach for that club, for that team".

A man now working as assistant to Mourinho after hanging up his boots over the summer told the Daily Mail : "When people ask me about him - 'Jose, what's he like, what's he bring?' - it's winning that is the thing that strikes me the most". They gave me confidence as well.


"I've obviously looked at the lads and seen how they've dealt with finishing playing and going into different roles as well, and there's so many different paths to take".

However, speaking ahead of France's friendly fixture against Iceland and Uefa Nations League showdown against Germany, Pogba stated that he does not need captain's armband to be a leader.

"For me, a leader isn't someone who wears something on his arm, who puts on the captain's armband".

"I can't pick one of them, but I sincerely hope it'll be one of those three, or even four because there's also NG (N'Golo Kante)".
