Man Utd star Paul Pogba reveals why he used to support Arsenal

Paul Pogba insists he will be happy to let Ashley Young take Manchester United's free kicks against Arsenal, assuming he is feeling confident enough to try his luck again.

"He is a big player for them and if he is not there I would say it is good for us".

During Tuesday night's 4-2 Premier League victory over Watford at Vicarage Road, Serbian midfielder Nemanja Matic left the pitch after 54 minutes to be replaced by Ander Herrera.

"We don't think about how many points ahead of them we are or how many points ahead the leaders are".

And Pogba has sent a message to Mourinho, revealing wants to play a part in all of United's clashes in the coming month.

"My goalkeeper needs to know what to do when his team has the ball, how to attack, and my striker needs to know how to defend and what to do, this is simple, for me is simple".

Ozil spent a highly-productive period under Mourinho at Real Madrid that included winning the La Liga title in 2012 with a record number of goals - and it was also noticeable that he asked the United manager to write the foreword this year for his autobiography. Although they are not in the mix for the title at the moment, Wenger's team is looking to secure the Champions League football next season, and a win here would boost their morale and chances of doing so.

In his subsequent press conference, Mourinho confirmed that defenders Phil Jones and Eric Bailly, who have both sat out the last four games, would not be available to face the Gunners.

"His ability to keep making those runs in behind is fantastic, I played a similar position to him, and you don't realise the athleticism it takes to keep making those runs".
