While a spirited Watford comeback saw Andre Gray halve the deficit as Javier Gracia's side put the pressure on United, Mourinho's much-criticised stars battled out a hard-fought triumph despite having second-half chances to wrap up the three points.

Pogba even reportedly told executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward of his wish to leave Old Trafford as Barcelona circled, while the midfielder has so far avoided publicly committing to a side he returned to in 2016.

"Men behind the ball, together, tackling, Fellaini - who I thought was excellent in the first half - and then it helps when you've got a goalkeeper who can do that [make a late save]". If we scored in the last minutes, maybe it would have been a draw and it would have been a very good result for us, but we tried and I think it is a line we need to keep for the next few games.
