Jamie Redknapp: Paul Pogba has lost his way at Man United

Carrick himself has talked up 21-year-old Scott McTominay as a potential replacement, and Mourinho insisted he is aware of the academy graduate's ability having utilised him in 12 games this season.

"We need to sign a midfield player", said Mourinho.

A year ago he told SunSport: "I first went down to train at United when I was about 12 and everything went from there". "Some of youkeep saying that we are going to buy that striker, that winger, that left winger, that right winger".

"You have contacts, you have feelings, you understand things, I think it was clear that Bale likes Madrid, the challenge, the situation, he's in a club in a very good situation now, I never felt a desire from him to leave, so why lose time and energy on that?" Do they want it, do they feel happy with it and do they want technological help? And sometimes they make mistakes because it's a human mistake and you can not go over it unless you have some technological support.

"Somebody tell me in which position Pogba played against Newcastle, any one of you want to tell me?"

United have now reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup in each of the last four seasons. But it was the first time I met Mr VAR. - Huddersfield have won just one of their last 14 games in all competitions against United (D3 L10).


Paul Pogba is the latest to join United's list of unavailable players; he is sidelined with illness.

"Saturday, black or white".

Lukaku's second goal, in the 55th minute, was similar but, if anything, even more impressive as the Belgian picked up the ball deep in his own half and set off upfield, outpacing his markers. "They were offensive, they were unsafe, they pushed us to good defensive work".

It was a really open and exciting game of football, but once again VAR will dominate the post-match analysis of an FA Cup game. The Champions League is more hard than the Europa League, we all know that.

The incident is the latest debatable moment since VAR's introduction into the FA Cup, which includes decisions in Chelsea's fourth-round win over Norwich City and Liverpool's defeat to West Brom.

United got off the ideal start by taking the lead after two minutes as Romelu Lukaku out-muscled his marker before firing home from close range.
