Trio To Miss Southampton Trip As Mourinho Offers Pogba Update

Mourinho sent to stands in Man Utd win at Southampton

When asked in a news conference whether a time-frame was decided for Pogba's return, Mourinho replied: "I have no idea. Until he's back, I trust my players".

The French worldwide was largely criticised by Mourinho last season, when he managed just eight goals, compared to 17 in his debut season following his £36million signing from Monaco.

The weekend's clash against Mauricio Pellegrino's side kicks off a run of six games out of seven on the road for United, but Mourinho is calm about the challenges ahead.

"It's very hard, but it means it's going to be easier later".

"Where the football team is improving, not just in results but also in a certain style of play".

"But I'm not anxious about it".

"I think it is something more global, where the club financially looks really strong - better than ever according to the numbers".

Mourinho will be hoping that his fast attackers produce one more performance and win three points when Manchester United travel to Southampton later today.

United will return to Premier League action following their 4-1 Carabao Cup victory on Wednesday night with a trip to the south coast to face Southampton at the St Mary's Stadium on Saturday. "For example, West Ham and Everton, two points against them at Old Trafford, this season six points".

"No idea, no idea", said Mourinho. "But again, it's a great opportunity for other players to play and I trust them all so I am not going to cry and count the days for Paul to be back".
