Mourinho set to drop big names after latest United stumble

It is claimed that Pogba was singled out for his poor performance by Mourinho at half-time, though the £89m man did not appear to listen to his manager's criticism.

Manchester City were confirmed champions on Sunday with five games to spare after Manchester United lost 1-0 at home to West Brom. Congratulations to Manchester City, who are mathematically the Premier League winners. I have no reason for not to trust.

It has always been clear United would not win the Premier League in 2017-18. "As I was saying, eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues and the last Premier League was not 20 years ago, was three years ago", Mourinho was quoted as saying by Reuters.

"You win titles with consistency at every level, not just the performance level but the mental level and the day by day". I only know one criteria: (it) is the way you play.

With a league trip to Bournemouth and an FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham to come this week, Mata is hoping his side can move on quickly from their setback. "He had a yellow card so he was in a more hard position than others", explained the boss. Probably because I won eight championships, I was not in the moon with the victory against them.

Pogba has previously been dropped this season for a series of games that included the two-leg defeat at the hands of Sevilla in the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho's side had kept the title race just about alive with a dramatic 3-2 derby win in their previous game, but a dismal performance against the league's bottom club means they can not now finish higher than second place.

If United fall to another spineless defeat on Wednesday, the gap in quality between them and City will look more pronounced than ever, and the prospect of the Red Devils closing that gap next season will be bleak. "In my opinion, it affected for sure some of the people that were too happy just with that", United manager explained. By the hour mark, Mourinho had brought on attacking players Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial for central midfielders Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba but things didn't really improve. I don't want to see him going towards the ball because I think his influence going forward is absolutely brilliant and we saw that against City with both the goals he scored. Players didn't want to or didn't play simple.
