  • Pogba has found life tough at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho in recent weeks

Four days later, Chelsea visit Old Trafford; both they and United must bounce back from recent league wobbles to banish fears of missing out on a top-four finish.

That is why they might want to try and make their mark in this season's edition of the competition. United meanwhile had comfortably dispatched Derby County and Yeovil Town in the historic competition, and were the clear favourites heading into this clash.

The French website claim to know the reasons why the Portuguese manager isn't 100% happy with Manchester United's record signing, and there's two of them.

Mourinho has denied any rift between himself and United's record signing, though, and Parker believes that Pogba needs to be exclusively focused on proving his worth to the team.

A midfielder who defends like a matured centre-back would: with intelligence and an excellent reading of the game; he possesses a bouquet of skills similar to that of the best players in his position.

Matic has told football bosses to speed up the VAR process after team-mate Juan Mata was denied a goal against Huddersfield, following a painfully long delay. I don't know (if it was the correct decision).

As well as quietening the home support, it was a goal that seemed to relax Mourinho's men, who eased through the closing stages with minimal fuss to seal their place in the quarter-final draw. The majority of time in the first half they were offensive and unsafe.

"They always went out and played the game with flair and ambition".

In the end it looked as if their second had as a result of this shift in attacking style, courtesy of some good work down the right flank by Ashley Young. It was a contentious decision, given how marginal the offside looked, but one that saw United head into the break with just a one-goal lead. Jones was visibly agitated in the second half at Newcastle.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he expects Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia to return from injury for the midweek trip to Sevilla. "The important thing was that it didn't really matter because we won anyway".

Ince was again the culprit as his side missed arguably their best chance yet to level midway through the first half when he slid in to meet Florent Hadergjonaj's excellent low cross but failed to make clean contact with the goal at his mercy.

Alexis Sanchez gives United greater potency following his January arrival from Arsenal, and he showed glimpses of a promising partnership with Lukaku against Huddersfield, setting up the second goal as part of a rapid counter.

Lukaku's early goal in particular was to be an important one as David Wagner's team responded impressively.
