Manchester United returned to winning ways with a big victory over Newcastle United, and manager Jose Mourinho singled out one of his stars for special praise.

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."
