Jose Mourinho demands better consistency from Paul Pogba

Jose Mourinho demands better consistency from Paul Pogba

Jose Mourinho believes Alexis Sanchez struggled immediately after joining Manchester United because the Chilean needed time to adapt.

Mourinho said: "I will tell you what I told him after the (City) match and it's exactly what I told him - I don't expect you to be man of the match every week, I don't expect you to score two goals every week".

"We come from a big result and during the week I was trying to fight that result by making the players work hard and understand that it is not enough to deserve to finish second, we need the points to finish second", said the Portuguese.

"I expect you to be consistent in a certain level".

"A team that has already more points than last season, a team that had brilliant matches and showed character many times".

Michael Carrick was pleased his half-time chat with Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba played a significant role in their thrilling derby win at Manchester City last weekend.

"To finish fourth we need four or five points, but to finish second we need much more than that". But when we do something positive, then also tell the truth.

He was particularly ineffective during the first half at the Etihad, as Jose Mourinho's men were left trailing 2-0 at the break and facing the prospect of seeing City clinch the Premier League title. If I expect him to score goals every match? No.

"The challenge he has is to find a degree of stability and not to keep going from good match to so-so match to bad match".

"When things go wrong, people don't think twice and have a go at us", he told Sky Sports.

"The easy thing would have been to out against Sevilla and then collapse in the Premier League, in the sense that motivation goes down and the quality goes down".

United's form, and their second-half display against City in particular, have suggested Mourinho's side is capable of challenging their neighbours at the top of the table next season.
