Juan Mata says now is a time for optimism at Manchester United, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having taken over from Jose Mourinho.

Pogba was stripped of vice-captaincy earlier this season and dropped for the final three league games of Mourinho's tenure, but the France global said that he had no hard feelings towards the Portuguese.

"We're not too focused on the other teams' scorelines at the moment".

Pogba was immediately restored to the starting line-up under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and produced two assists in Saturday's 5-1 English Premier League thrashing of Cardiff City.

"I don't think he (Solskjaer) has stopped smiling", Young said.

"'[It was] not just the players, but the whole football club", Rooney responded to BT Sport when asked about whether the players noticed the toxic atmosphere surrounding the side.

Man United looked a completely different team. The Terriers have only scored 11 goals this season, the lowest of any club in the top four divisions in England. That's the past. I want to thank him for that.

"I don't know", said Matic, who played under Mourinho at Chelsea and Old Trafford.

Following Manchester United's 5-1 win over Cardiff City, Paul Pogba downplayed any rift with Jose Mourinho and thanked him for making him a better player.

"After a performance like that I am sure he will be delighted". He always told me to watch the game, watch the defenders, to visualize what movement you're going to make to try to put yourself in a position to score goals or have an impact when you come on off the bench.
