"If we're being brutally honest I think his decision making out there in the first half hasn't been good".

"Marouane forget it. He's very important for me", he said. "It would be silly to dismiss Chelsea after the way they played so dominantly past year but looking at the teams, I think City and United will be up there and the teams to watch".
'But I do think that the machine that Manchester United are now, the size, the players they've got, you know they've got a massive stature to their team, I think Pogba adds to that.
