Jose Mourinho: 'Romelu Lukaku to return in a week'

Among United's players only Romelu Lukaku has scored more times this term than Lingard, who managed just a single goal in the Premier League last campaign but has flourished over the past five weeks.

United, who pride themselves on having one of the best youth systems in the country, finally have a true Mancunian, who has been flourishing on the big stage.

England worldwide Lingard reached double figures for the season by crashing home his seventh goal in nine games to cap a 2-0 victory over Everton on New Year's Day. Liverpool 's third successive win extended their unbeaten league run to 13 games as they cemented their place in the top four.

In the 2012-13 season, he was loaned out to Leicester City, totaling a total of 5 appearances for the Foxes.

He says United is the only club he wants to coach at and he was disappointed to miss out on the Under-23s job, believing the club held his critical media comments against him. He's nowhere near as deadly or prolific as the Tottenham goal-machine.

But he starred for United on New Years Day, as he captained his side to a brilliant victory at Goodison Park.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho allayed fears over Romelu Lukaku's head injury as the Portuguese revealed the Belgian will be back within a week after getting hurt in United's draw with Southampton on Saturday.

"Maybe I will be lucky this time and the kings of rock "n" roll who said I was underperforming last match will now say I'm performing", the United manager said, referring to Scholes and two other former United players-turned-pundits, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs. "Some players are not capable of doing that jump".

"I think they would love to be here. He is being more consistent, he's going in a good direction".

Speaking after the Everton match, in which Pogba provided assists for both goals, Mourinho clambered up onto his pedestal hand-sculpted from 100% congealed opprobrium and began pontificating.

The 25-year-old added to Anthony Martial's opener with his 10th goal in all competitions this season to return the Red Devils to second spot in the Premier League table, although they remain 12 points behind arch-rivals Manchester City.

"I think Jesse is giving that jump".
