Manchester United react to losing a penalty shoot-out during the Carabao Cup Third Round match between Manchester United and Derby County at Old Trafford on September 25, 2018 in Manchester, England.

With no extra time in this season's competition, the contest went straight to spot kicks and Frank Lampard's Derby won 8-7 with Phil Jones's effort saved by visiting keeper Scott Carson.

Mourinho opted to side-step his post match media conference that would have been dominated by questions about Pogba, but this new video footage says all we need to know about the fractured relationship between manager and his star player. I wanted to come here and win,"he said". The humbling came on the day United's annual accounts showed the wage bill rose 12 per cent to 295.9 million pounds ($390 million) in 2017-18 - nearly 40 million pounds more than Manchester City, which won the league in May by finishing 19 points ahead of its second-placed neighbour.

Pogba was not in the squad for Tuesday's match, though to be fair, this would've been the ideal time to give the midfielder a rest following a tiring summer in Russian Federation.

Between now and Saturday's game at the London Stadium we hope calms heads can prevail and both Pogba and Mourinho can get on the same page.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said on Tuesday he had stripped France midfielder Paul Pogba of his vice-captain's role at the club but denied there was a rift between the pair.

Mourinho is said to have reminded his players that nobody is bigger than the club and was furious with Pogba's attitude in recent games.
