Paul Pogba admits he enjoys playing further forward for Manchester United

Paul Lambert is Stoke's new manager

Manchester United will be hoping to cut Manchester City's lead at the top of the table with a win when they take on Stoke at Old Trafford this evening.

Just a second win in five home league games moves second-placed United three points ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea, while leaders Manchester City are now back within 12 points.

"We scored two incredible goals and for me that was the good thing of the first half".

"Obviously we see Manchester City in front of us and they lost", he told Sky Sports.

"But we have to think about ourselves and think about winning because we have lost a lot of points".

Just shy of half-time United then doubled their lead through Anthony Martial who looked to better Valencia's effort. "I enjoyed the experience but it has been incredibly hard personally", he said. We were sometimes too calm, sometimes too slow, in the first half and we let them get compact and organise quite easily. "I think he is happy with the way the team is playing and he's happy because the team is changing the profile and the profile is going more in his direction".

"We scored two awesome goals and for me that was the good thing of the first half".

"They had the ball and it was hard for us to press them". They had more chances than I would have liked them to have had in the first half.

"Second half, totally different".

"In the second half, we played confidently and fast and aggressive and I liked the second half".

Stoke's new manager Paul Lambert, appointed earlier on Monday, watched from the stands, with the sacked Mark Hughes' former assistant Eddie Niedzwiecki in charge of the team. But to say the match was in our control from the beginning, I wouldn't say that because I think they [Stoke] were good. There's been too much negativity, too much.
