Mourinho drops Pogba for Man Utd clash v Huddersfield

"He had surgery this morning", Mourinho told a news conference. However, Sanchez, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and co were blitzed by another Spurs strike, but the unfortunate Phil Jones could do nothing but strike into his own net past David De Gea from Kieran Trippier's whipped cross.

The forward could then do little as the Red Devils were well beaten in the Premier League by Tottenham Hotspur in midweek.

Mourinho said: 'He had surgery this morning. That is why the team must show improvements against the newly-promoted side.

Put to him Sanchez played a lot of different positions in Saturday's 2-0 defeat of Huddersfield, Mourinho responded: "Exactly that's the point, that's the objective".

The coach was also seen in animated discussion with his star, although Mourinho insisted Pogba's removal was purely a tactical decision.

The 55-year-old bemoaned the four mistakes made by his players in the lead-up to Christian Eriksen's 11-second opener at Wembley.

"Alexis is a fantastic player but not a prima donna", Mourinho said. He has played virtually every minute this winter and he could do with a rest. It is especially ridiculous because the players watched it before.

A far more positive outing for the former Arsenal man than his first league appearance for United on Wednesday, the 2-0 away loss to Tottenham. "I don't think it's a big, big thing but he was immediately feeling something and telling us he couldn't carry on".

"Unlucky for him and unlucky for me. Sign the contract before you know the extent of the injury".
