"The only truth is that I made the decision that Paul will not be a second (vice) captain anymore but no fallout, no problems at all", Mourinho said after Tuesday's clash against Derby County.

Scott Carson saved from Phil Jones to earn the Championship side a place in the fourth round, progressing 8-7 at the end of a high-class shoot-out that followed a dramatic 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

That's according to the Manchester Evening News who also claim Ander Herrera, Eric Bailly and Juan Mata are all available.

Whether that means Manchester United ultimately will sell Pogba to Barcelona, back to Juventus or elsewhere will be among the hottest topics of the Premier League season.

The United manager appeared to confirm those reports in his post-match interview when he admitted that he had stripped Pogba of his role as vice-captain and the club.

Marcus Rashford is out as he serves the final game of a three-match suspension.

The 25-year-old was dispossessed in the move that led to Joao Moutinho's equaliser, with the midfielder saying afterwards that United should "attack, attack, attack".

The relationship between the United boss and his most expensive player has become increasingly strained in recent days.

Recently, Paul Pogba publicly criticized Jose Mourinho's tactics after their last EPL game at home which ended in a draw, and the Special One announced afterwards that the Frenchman will not captain his team again. "That's Old Trafford", Pogba said to reporters.

"They play like I like to play, which is like the World Cup final", he said.

It remains to be seen if Pogba will feature in Mourinho's side when they return to action on Saturday.

"There's other clubs in the world who haven't got Paul Pogba who have been very successful".

The former Chelsea player has revealed what Mourinho said to him in their conversation.

And Foden rounded off a fine individual display with his first senior goal for the club in stoppage time.

It came after he tweeted on Monday, after what happened against Wolves: "Some people make polemic even from "good morning" to create drama".
