Man United deny Jose Mourinho row with Paul Pogba, Phil Jones

Wednesday, 21 Feb, 2018

United, weren't made to rue that decision, though, as Romelu Lukaku struck early in both halves to ease their passage into a quarter-final at home to Brighton.

"We need to sign a midfield player", said Mourinho. I brought two kids that played yesterday 90 minutes because I don't have another player.

For Manchester United this season, we have seen glimpses of what Pogba's capable of, and he does have nine assists to his name in the Premier League, but Mourinho should look to change to a more orthodox 4-3-3 formation in order to get the best from the Frenchman. "I sometimes think could he go and play that role around the centre forward when he doesn't have to worry too much about that discipline to help the fellow midfield player".

Solving the riddle of how to fit Paul Pogba into the United team and get him to deliver his best performances is one that has been dividing opinion among fans and pundits alike.

"Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Marouane (Fellaini), Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) - I don't think they have any chance, so we arrive at this crucial moment with some problem". The Champions League is more hard than the Europa League, we all know that. More spells of possession allowed the visitors to utterly control and dictate the game, and they played on the break whenever they won the ball back from David Wagner's men.

Metro believes that was Mourinho's way of criticising Pogba for his "rather flamboyant lifestyle", a criticism that the paper claims represents a worrying deterioration in the pair's relationship.

After last week's match Mourinho insisted Pogba was not injured during Manchester United's defeat to Newcastle - despite withdrawing him for the second time in three matches after a below-par display.

Manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that United are likely to be without some important squad members ahead of their trip to Spain, and it is the first of two tough fixtures in a week for United - as they then face Chelsea on Sunday. Just as a curiosity, Carrick was the one who replaced Paul. United manager Jose Mourinho could have a serious shortage of legitimate first team level players for selection.

"He is important for us", Matic said.

"So, what do you do with him?" I scored a goal, I celebrated and when I came to the dressing room they told me that even on the TV, it wasn't very clear.

That clinical finishing was enough to beat hard-working Huddersfield, whose goalkeeper Jonas Lossl hopes to build on recent displays at embattled West Brom next weekend as the Terriers target Premier League survival.

"So I went to Joycey and said: "I'm thinking of coming back".
