The France international midfielder has not been on the losing side in the Premier League for over a year, proving his worth to the Red Devils

"This season, there was a Manchester United with Paul and there was a Manchester United without Paul."

Jose Mourinho has made it clear how important Paul Pogba is to Manchester United and the France international is racking up the numbers to prove it.

Wearing the captain's armband, Pogba delivered a man-of-the-match performance as United beat Everton 2-0 on Monday - Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard on the scoresheet.

Pogba's tricky footwork and pass helped set up Martial's opener and he released Lingard for the second, moving the Frenchman onto seven Premier League assists this season in just 12 appearances.
