Pogba was first out to train at Carrington on Friday and appears likely to be recalled for the visit to Newcastle United on Sunday. "Paul had a very professional behaviour," Mourinho said. "The week was not different to what Paul is every week. He works well, he's a good professional. He likes to train. I've never had a single problem with him." Mourinho has not won in six Premier League games at St James' Park across two stints as Chelsea manager, recording three draws and three defeats. "I lost and I drew a few times, I hope the result is different but I know the characteristics of the game will not be difficult," Mourinho said. "They have a good team and I think they had a good transfer window, with Kenedy and (Islam) Slimani, two players I know very well, who can really improve the team. "(Rafa) Benitez knows how to get points so I think it is going to be difficult."
"Between me and Paul there are no confusions - he is a midfield player and that's it."February 9, 2018

United are second in the table, 13 points behind leaders Manchester City. Mourinho indicated full back Luke Shaw is set to sign a new long-term contract after the 22-year-old worked his way back into the first-team plans. "He has been free of minor injuries for a few months which sometimes stops the evolution and I'm really happy," Mourinho said. "The natural consequence of it is that he will have his contract and he will be a United player for years."
