Zlatan, Pogba and Mourinho's top 20 transfers of all time

  • Struggling Stoke City appointed Paul Lambert as their new manager

Mourinho's future has been the source of much speculation since an interview with French television in October during which he said he would not end his career at United.

The France worldwide provided two assists in the 3-0 win over Stoke, as they closed to within 12 points of City.

Mourinho says the team is changing shape to suit the flamboyant Frenchman's knowledge, skills and abilities.

Valencia, back from almost a month out with a hamstring injury, collected Paul Pogba's pass, cut inside, and blasted a shot into the top corner with his weaker foot to give United the lead.

"Stoke bought players to play football, they were not afraid to play and they created us problems in the first half", said Mourinho after the match.

"Someone who can hold the ball when I pass it to him, then I can make my run - someone to score goals and make assists".

"Paul Lambert said a few words to the players in the hotel before the game, but he showed me the respect, it was my team today".

Chinese rescuers find two bodies on burning oil tanker
But the Sanchi , carrying almost 1 million barrels of a gassy, ultra-light oil bound for South Korea, burst into flames. China Central Television (CCTV) reported that large amounts of oil were burning where the tanker went down.

In a postgame interview with Sky Sports, Pogba was asked if Manchester City's 4-3 loss at Liverpool on Sunday gave United a boost.

"They were very positive, they had the best chances in the first half, and then we were a bit lucky to score the second goal, another lovely one". We just want to catch City, win the points that we lost and that's it.

"We're not looking to the past".

But he took time to settle and last month United great Paul Scholes accused him of "just strolling through games". "We've got to get back and try to catch them". "We just have to focus on ourselves, keep winning and I think we will be okay".

They hardly resembled a team suffering from holiday blues last night, however, completely cruising to a comfortable victory over the Potters thanks to goals from Antonio Valencia, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku.

Stoke's new manager Paul Lambert, appointed earlier on Monday to replace the sacked Mark Hughes, watched from the stands as Valencia put United ahead.
