When asked why Mourinho dropped Pogba  against Liverpool, he told Sky Sports: “I made many decisions. I made many decisions with starting with 11 players and leaving others on the bench.

“I always try to choose what I think is best for the team. I think the team lately with [Ander] Herrera, [Nemanja] Matic and [Jesse] Lingard lost some qualities.
