What is going on between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba?

Manchester United drew 0-0 in a poor performance against Sevilla in the Champions League first knockout round first leg match.

Pogba made an earlier-than-expected appearance off the bench, coming on in the 17th minute for the injured Ander Herrera, but the Frenchman did not have a huge impact.

Mourinho said on Friday: "I don't want to speak about it, I'm not going to speak about it".

Jamie Carragher has backed Jose Mourinho's refusal to indulge Paul Pogba by building his Manchester United team around the record signing.

"It is totally different to play in the Premier League to the Champions League".

"It's hard, it's getting more and more hard, but that's good for us of course", he added.

Despite Chelsea's shock defeats at the hands of Bournemouth and Watford in the league recently, their performances against Hull in the FA Cup as well as the La Liga side can help reverse the unrest that has surrounded Stamford Bridge in recent times.

However, it was not the sort of a game where his influence would perhaps be obvious. They didn't win the league, and they won't, and their promising start to the season is starting to slip away incredibly quickly. Ex-Blues forward Romelu Lukaku will be looking to strike a hammer blow to his former side's ambitions by bagging a goal on Sunday.

Once again Mourinho's side offered little offensively - Lukaku had the visitors' first shot on goal in the 25th minute but volleyed well over.

"I championed the Jose Mourinho appointment as I thought with the way he left Chelsea he would have a point to prove".

But De Gea stook firm, reaching out with a strong right hand to tip the Colombian's header over the crossbar.

The hosts' striker, Luis Muriel, peeled off the back of United defender Chris Smalling and found himself free just inside the six-yard box.

Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella: "I am very happy with the character shown by the team".

Mourinho refrained from heaping praise on the man-of-the-match and insisted 0-0 was a fair result, despite Sevilla being on top and managing 25 attempts.

Manchester United officials are becoming increasingly annoyed by the conduct of Mino Raiola and his reaction to the dropping of Paul Pogba, his star client.

In response, the Portuguese said he would not be dictated to and that "I'm the boss", before telling Pogba to read the "manager" sign on the door as he walked out.

However, with the pressure on his shoulders and the ability he possesses he should be more than capable of adapting to the system and altering his style in order for Manchester United to reap the rewards, according to the panel. Chelsea are in fourth place, three points behind United.
