Jose Mourinho impressed by Wolves ahead of Manchester United clash

World Cup victor Pogba may scored twice for United as he led from the front as captain in their convincing 3-0 win against Young Boys on Wednesday night, yet European Cup victor Souness was vocal in his criticism of the midfielder in his comments as a pundit on Virgin Media Sport.

It's criminal. I think he has to change. Milner, every day of the week.

Wolves could name the same starting XI for a sixth consecutive league game.

"Now I can say, I don't understand how you can play the best club competition on artificial pitch", said Mourinho, who had declined to comment on the surface before the game.

"I had the confidence of the players as well, they let me take it too, so I thank them for this and I thank the manager".
