Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku celebrates after scoring his side's 3ed goal of the game during the English Premier League match against Stoke City at Old Trafford in Manchester, Monday, Jan. 15.
"Obviously you see Manchester City are in front of us and they lost their first game", Pogba told Sky Sports.
"We're not looking to the past, we're looking to the next games".
"It's good that they lose points but we have to go back to winning because we want to catch them again".
"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".
There are six players who have all chalked up nine assists, including Manchester City duo Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane, plus Paris Saint-Germain's world-record signing Neymar, but Paul has the edge on them all because he has made fewer appearances due to his periods of injury and suspension.
United return to action when play Burnley on Saturday (3pm).
"But I think we were confident and organised, but a bit slow". United pressed well and capitalised on the opportunities but for Mourinho, the two solid goals were the on;y good thing from the first 45 minutes. "He always wants the ball and they're a far better team when he's in there".
United believe they have won the battle for the £35 million-rated Sanchez, who is out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the season, especially after City let the Gunners know on Monday that they are no longer interested in Sanchez, given his fee and salary demands. The France forward didn't hesitate in meeting it with a first-time shot that bent beyond the grasp of Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland. "In the second half, we played confidently and fast and aggressive and I liked the second half", Mourinho said about United's performance in the second half.
