Illness Keeps Pogba Out of FA Cup Tie

Illness Keeps Pogba Out of FA Cup Tie

"I was trying that with the simplicity of Michael Carrick because he tries to make everything simple and bring Alexis in an area close to Lukaku where he can be like a second striker". The incident has sparked a fresh debate over the use of the review system, given that BT Sport's coverage displayed a replay that featured a wonky offside line that offered little assistance on judging whether the Spanish midfielder was onside or not - though the officials were provided with a clearer display.

Manchester United fans were cautiously optimistic following Chris Smalling's performance vs Huddersfield in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

"I think maybe it's because he's this kind of kid profile: a normal haircut, no tattoos, no big cars, no big watches, humble kid, arrive in the club when he was nine or 10".

United's head of global scouting, Marcel Bout, watched Seri, 26, play 90 minutes in a 2-2 draw with Monaco last month.

"I think you are nice with your words, because when you say "a lot of speculation" you should say "a lot of lies", Mourinho told reporters on Friday. But he does offer one more bit of insight into this madness. If I was Alex McLeish, the first thing I would do would be [phone gesture] "come to me"'.

McTominay, attached to United since the age of five, has not represented England or Scotland at youth level.

Hamilton joined United when he was 16-years-old, from Edinburgh based youth team Hutchinson Vale.


The development comes after Mourinho was forced to deny that his relationship with Pogba had broken down over the latter's unhappiness at the position he is being asked to play.

When I don't want to say things, I don't say, but I don't take you in other directions.

Rumours of discontent have emerged with the French star out of form in recent weeks, but United sources have been quick to play those down and they told me that the player is "more than happy" with life at Old Trafford and is "determined to get back to his best".

"Yesterday he was working normally with us".

"Just as curiosity, it was Michael Carrick who replaced Paul". United went into the break both fortunate to be ahead on the balance of play, and also rightfully aggrieved to not have an even greater lead.

"And the FA Cup in this moment, I believe all the top teams, I think only Liverpool and Arsenal are out".

"In the FA Cup last match [against Yeovil Town] we went to a really serious hard stadium, opponent living a dream to play Manchester United and be a giant-killer, and we did it serious", Mourinho said.
