But I think it can make me stronger.

But speaking to Telefoot, Pogba made it clear the pair are on good terms and that there is no thought in his head about leaving Old Trafford (h/t Chris Burton of Goal).

Pogba hasn't been effective in a midfield pair alongside Nemanja Matic to prompt Jose Mourinho to drop the France midfielder for their Champions League round of 16 loss to Sevilla. "They play football the way I like to play it", he said.

Having struggled for form, Pogba has been in and out of the United team, his start in Saturday's 2-0 win over Swansea City ending a run of three successive games on the bench.

Like Pogba, Sanchez's form has also come under close scrutiny since his high-profile transfer to United but, as with his French team mate, the Chilean could be pleased with his afternoon's endeavours. "We have I think 10 more points than last season, we have more goals, fewer conceded, we are going to try to finish second, so the season is not as bad as you try [to make it]".

After the disappointing reigns of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, United turned to the Portuguese in the summer of 2016 in a bid to bring glory back to Old Trafford.

The "Delicate" singer joined country songwriter Craig Wiseman for a performance that celebrated the Bluebird's 35th anniversary. Swift recalled inviting Wiseman to co-write a song when she was 17, which he declined. "I thought there was something to it".

Pogba got the job done against Swansea as he and his United teammates dominated the relegation-threatened side, particularly in a first half Mourinho called "perfect".

The only team with a chance of catching United for second place is arch-rival Liverpool, who are two points behind.

The France global made a blistering start to the Premier League season following two goals and two assists in his opening four games.

Manchester United recently parted ways with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and manager Jose Mourinho has explained why they won't sign a replacement.

Speculation only intensified following their recent FA Cup quarter-final win over Brighton & Hove Albion.

"We have more points than last season", he added.
