Pogba blow for Manchester United

Paul Ince says Paul Pogba's form has dipped due to the arrival of Alexis Sanchez

"I was told by the doctors this morning that he wasn't coming", he added.

They halted an eight-game winless run by despatching Birmingham 4-1 at St Andrew's in their fourth-round replay and then registered their first Premier League win since mid-December by out-playing Bournemouth.

Mourinho dismissed the claims on Friday as "big lies" and insisted there was no break-down in his relationship with the former Juventus midfielder.

Pogba was said to be irritated at not being employed more offensively, but Mourinho said that was not true.

Speaking about possible new recruits, the Portuguese said: "We need to sign a midfield player because we are going to lose Michael Carrick".

'I think you are nice with your words - because when you say lot of speculation you should say a lot of lies.

Pogba was sidelined for months after picking up a hamstring injury in September and has not been able to perform at his best ever since recovering and Mourinho believes the injury has certainly affected the dip in his performance. "No 8 on the left", Mourinho said.

"If, for you, promotion is that they train regularly with us, they have been promoted for a long time".

"He is not playing well, period".

"The team needs [Pogba] at a good level", Mourinho continued. His absence through injury and suspension saw United go from title contenders to a team hoping for a second-placed finish at best. "The next one is the one that afterwards we will be out of the FA Cup or in a quarter-final". Paul Ince admitted it would be a great occassion as the teams meet for the third time this season.

"You know what that means?"

However, Mourinho has appeared reluctant to use him in this position or to change from his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation - until now.

He said it was a subject that was "quite ridiculous to speak about", before asking a reporter where Pogba played against Newcastle.

"You don't need to come with we want to sell him, you don't need that".

"We played with one No 6 and two No 8s". Having been left out of the starting team (in favour of Scott McTominay) for United's win over Huddersfield, before being substituted off in the game against Newcastle, there were suggestions that the manager and player had fallen out.

The Terriers, who have not reached the sixth round of the FA Cup since 1972 - the same year they were last relegated from the top flight - secured morale-boosting back-to-back victories last week.
