Jose Mourinho makes six alterations to the side which lost at Newcastle last time out, with Paul Pogba one of the absentees due to an apparent illness.

United started a crucial week in their season with a 2-0 win over Huddersfield in the FA Cup.

Brighton's Jurgen Locadia scored on his debut in the 3-1 win over Coventry City who, after knocking out Stoke City in the third round, failed in their attempt to make FA Cup history by becoming the first fourth-tier side to beat two top-flight teams in the same season.

But it does create doubt about the 24-year-old's availability for Wednesday's last 16 tie in Spain.

Metro believes that was Mourinho's way of criticising Pogba for his "rather flamboyant lifestyle", a criticism that the paper claims represents a worrying deterioration in the pair's relationship. "And we have strong team strong bonding, strong team mentality".

Three times José Mourinho raised his right hand in appreciation towards the 3,862 Manchester United supporters who were singing his name in stoppage time at the John Smith's Stadium.

"But I am hearing they aren't as close as a few months ago, and that's something United can't afford".

"I prefer to play at Old Trafford against Chelsea or Manchester City or Tottenham". We have seen him struggle with the defensive and positional sense but [that changes when] you ask him to go into the attacking areas.

Despite having the goal chalked off, Spaniard Mata said he was in favour of the VAR system, but Huddersfield manager David Wagner, whose team benefited from the decision, said it was "killing the emotion of the game". Then after I saw the referee speaking to someone and you look silly when the goal is denied.
