The French midfielder's poor form has been the subject of much discussion recently, with some reports suggesting the player is becoming unsettled at United after failing to play 90 minutes in the club's last three games against Tottenham, Huddersfield and Newcastle.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has seemingly aimed a thinly-veiled swipe at rival manager Pep Guardiola over the latter's controversial decision to only include six substitutes during a recent Premier League game.

The news will likely fuel reports of Pogba and Mourinho's uneasy relationship, particularly given the manager's rant in Friday's news conference.

"Because I accept, and I can speak on Paul's behalf without any kind of problem, Paul accepts that he has not been playing well in the last few matches". Don't be nice, be objective and say lies. Any one of you want to tell me?

Mourinho clarified that Pogba's preferred formation is 4-3-3 and playing as an "eight on the left", before urging the media to explain the game and not talk "b******t".

"So it's easy and honest, and objective to say Paul Pogba did not play well against Newcastle".

It was hoped that Pogba and Mourinho could display a united front at the John Smith's Stadium, but an untimely sickness bug has sidelined the 24-year-old.

Ultimately, Paul Pogba's absence is detrimental to Manchester United because the young Frenchman is the backbone to Mourinho's midfield.

The former Everton star was happy to reach 21 goals for the season before a hard week, in which United visit Sevilla in the Champions League before hosting Chelsea next Sunday.

Confirming that Paul Pogba will be playing against Huddersfield Town, Mourinho hit out at journalists who cook up stories and said their surname should be liars.

Mind you that all winnings are paid in free bets and that there is additional £100 in free bets waiting for you on your next 5 deposits.

"And the FA Cup in this moment, I believe all the top teams, I think only Liverpool and Arsenal are out". "Especially Aaron, who has played on a very high level against Bournemouth - back to his best".

Rafa Benitez, credited with an interest in Bologna's Italian striker Mattia Destro, is focusing on gearing his team up for a return to Premier League action at Bournemouth next Saturday.
