United are now heavily linked with a January move for Arsenal attacker Alexis Sanchez, although much of the deal focuses on the future of midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, with the Armenian being used as a makeweight in any transfer between the two clubs.

The latest reports indicate that Manchester City is cooling a bit in their interest for Sanchez, as they don't want to pay £20 million for a player that would be available on a free in the summer.

"He is our player and a very good player".

Mourinho's Man United take on Stoke on Monday in the Premier League.

Previous to this, United had overcome Derby County at home in the FA Cup, with their last Premier League game having occurred before that at Goodison Park where Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial got the goals in a 2-0 victory. "We just have to focus on ourselves, keep winning and I think we will be okay", said Pogba.

The 22-year old signed for United for big money in 2015 and has gone on to score 34 goals for the club.

Hopeful Manchester United fans would like to see Alexis in their colours this weekend, with Mourinho preparing his side for a trip to Turf Moor.

Manchester United, in the midst, are now in talks with Arsenal over a potential move for Alexis Sanchez.

"I didn't like the first half, I only like two fantastic goals", said Mourinho, who also discussed his interest in Alexis Sanchez. They had the ball and it was hard for us to press them.

Promoted Brighton have picked up just two points from their last four games and are three points off the relegation zone.

"We scored two incredible goals and for me, that was the good thing of the first half".

"If it happens, happens, if it doesn't happen then it doesn't happen but I like my squad, I like my players, the more time I spend with them this week was also good to be sure of that". The 24-year-old has missed 15 games in all competitions this season through a combination of injury and suspension.

'It's obvious that we're not going to let the option disappear. "In the second half, we played confidently and fast and aggressive and I liked the second half", Mourinho said about United's performance in the second half.
