Paul Pogba made his first appearance for the first team since September and he went on to bag a goal and an assist during his 70-minute cameo as the Red Devils claimed a 4-1 win at Old Trafford.

Mourinho felt the France International was superb on his return to action for the Red Devils.

"[Pogba was] different class. [It was] what we had in the beginning of the season with Paul and [Nemanja] Matic, growing up together and being like the engine of the team," Mourinho told BT Sport.

"We lost a bit of that because, while other players are good players, they have different qualities.

"I left it in Paul's hands as to how long he played. We made that decision [to replace him] at a good time - it was a great performance from him."
