Mourinho: City gave no chance to United, Spurs, Liverpool”

Twice a championship victor with Chelsea, Matic has been one of United's most dependable performers during a campaign in which City's relentless march to the title has intensified the spotlight, sometimes unfairly, on Mourinho's side.

Mourinho praised Pogba's response in Wednesday's 2-0 win at Bournemouth and challenged him to keep his game at a high level.

However, speaking in the build up to todays crunch FA Cup semi-final against Spurs at Wembley, United's Portuguese coach has laid out exactly what he expects from the France worldwide.

"I'm not expecting him to be phenomenal every match because that is really, really hard".

The Manchester United boss has been impressed with some of Pogba's recent performances, but admits he may not be able to keep up to a "phenomenal" level every week. That's the challenge. That's obvious.

"He was phenomenal against Manchester City". He was phenomenal against Manchester City, not good against West Brom, and again phenomenal against Bournemouth.

Nemanja Matic has said star team-mate Paul Pogba needs to "take more responsibility".

"Even when they were nearly losing points they managed to win against Bournemouth in minute 145". He was really good'.

The FA Cup represents an opportunity to claim some silverware this term but Mourinho insists the season should be viewed positively, even if United do not reach the final or triumph at Wembley on May 19. I think it's too harsh. "Praise the victor and we're going to try to be the ones (who win)".

"Many clubs had positive seasons, like us, like Tottenham, like Liverpool", he said. That's the reason why we were champions three months before the end of the season - give no chance to the opponent.

City are now 13 points ahead of United having played a game fewer, with Pep Guardiola's side winning the title with five matches to spare. "They never did it", he said. "They need to get back that fear factor".
