Manchester United fans were starting to grow concerned with Paul Pogba after the win over Brighton in the FA Cup at Old Trafford.
Pogba was on the bench once more for United which most supporters initially could understand but they did expect him to come onto the pitch later.
However that didn’t transpire, even when Mourinho had the opportunity to bring on a midfielder he gave the nod to Marouane Fellaini, perhaps to send a message.
The Frenchman’s career with the Red Devils appears to be bleak at the moment and it will take some serious hard work to turn things around.
You can argue Sanchez needs a rest after 10 straight starts but not sure why Pogba isn't playing unless he's not fully fit.

Fans finally saw that their key player really was out of form during his horrible cameo against Sevilla and so it made sense for Jose to leave him on the bench.
Many hoped the Portuguese manager would sub Paul onto the pitch during the match in an effort to help him regain his form.
However, even with Manchester United in a precarious scenario of leading with only a single goal, Jose Mourinho opted to not use the talented midfielder.
Eventually it was Matic who grabbed his side’s so called insurance goal and the team managed to hold onto the result.
Paul Pogba is undoubtedly out of form having failed to create a single chance in his last five Premier League matches but there’s hope he cans till turn it around before the season is over.
