The Frenchman, who has had a rough few weeks, has endured a lot of criticism for his performances on the field, and there are rumours that he is not seeing eye to eye with his coach at the moment.

After the game against the Cherries, however, Mourinho had only praise for the club record signing's display.

"I'm not very good on Man of the Match (awards), especially as I'm a team manager, not a player's manager," Mourinho told BT Sport.

"I'm not a big fan of it (the award), but Paul Pogba played very well. Against Man City he was phenomenal, but today he was very, very good. A good choice (as Man of the Match)."

The Red Devils boss also admitted that some of his players' performances gave him something to think about ahead United's FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

"Every player on the pitch was positive and put himself available for Saturday," Mourinho added.

"The players were good. It was a good professional performance with good effort and responsibility. There was a desire to score and a desire to cope with the defensive responsibilities against a fast team.

"All of them were professional and responsible. The first ambition was to finish in the top four and now one point is probably enough. When we have that resolved, we can think about the third and second place.

"Everything was faster, it was simple. The players were in the right positions and not trying one more flick, one more trick. Everything was good, I am happy."
