Asked about whether they would be Mourinho's preferred midfielders in the future, Neville told Sky Sports: "It's too early to say, I don't think Mourinho will look at that performance and think Pogba and Herrera are his midfield two.
"In those games Pogba and Herrera, if they are going to play together, can they then go and deliver in the bigger games and against the better opposition?
"That's when the ultimate test will come. But it's a good start for them today [Saturday]. They took their opportunities."
