Blow for Man United as Jose Mourinho provides Paul Pogba injury update

Former Tottenham player Garth Crooks has lambasted Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho for his "frightened" team selection on Saturday.

"They can boo a player that doesn't deserve to be booed, they can boo a player that is working like an animal and because the game is not going in his direction".

'Romelu is one of the players who should be untouchable in terms of respect from everyone.

"He is playing extremely well for us and yes I have to protect my players when I feel they deserve it".

"The fans are the fans and I also told [on Saturday] that the fans pay for their tickets and are free to express themselves the way they want to express", Mourinho said.

"What he does for the team is fantastic and to play football for a striker is not just about scoring goals".
