Jose Mourinho & Paul Pogba

Not only was Pogba back in the team, but Jose Mourinho surprising made the French star his captain.

Was Mourinho sending a message to the Premier League?

Of course, Pogba has been out for a stamp on Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin.

Many have since argued that Pogba’s punishment was harsh. Some believe the United midfielder shouldn’t have been punished at all.

The other main selection issue in the United XI was Victor Lindelof being used as a right back.

Antonio Valencia is out of action with a hamstring injury.
