Maybe as well we felt a bit of fatigue because we played Champions League.

Paul Pogba offered a damning critique of Manchester United's performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers, admitting that they lacked hunger and betrayed the club's traditions by failing to attack the opposition. Paul Pogba has now stepped up to the plate and criticised Mourinho's approach with the Red Devils.

"Attack, attack, attack" he told BBC Sport, mirroring the famous Old Trafford chant.

The Red Devils' fans were disappointed on Saturday, September 22, when their team were forced to a 1-1 draw in a Premier League tie United should have won.

Pogba believes Alexis is still adjusting to a different style of football under Mourinho compared to his former-manager Arlene Wenger.

"What you have to know about Alexis is that he is a hard worker", explained Pogba.

Mourinho confirms Dalot will not feature against Wolves
He runs at players and gets more attention than most from those trying to stop him, but he loses possession too often. And again one team was coming to play the game of their lives, the other to relax".

And in the aftermath of the Wolves draw - a result which has left United eight points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool - supporters turned on Sanchez on Twitter.

"It's good because no extra time means no more extra minutes that we already have, especially the teams that are playing European competitions and especially when it goes to the end of the competitions - extra time is really, really hard".

Speaking of his opponents in his post-match press conference, the Manchester United manager said: "Wolves, by the way they faced the game, I think they deserve it".

"When you're the manager of Manchester United, when you have the CV and the background of Jose Mourinho, and this is not ancient history, this is fresh history of the Europa League and the FA Cup or whatever, then of course you have it".

Let us know in the comments. I like the feeling of the knockout: you win you are in the competition, you lose you are out.

The move will not just help Manchester United secure Smalling's future, but also keep his transfer value in check, in case they put him up for sale in the transfer market. We had Damien Duff, Arjen Robben, Joe Cole, though we got painted as (negative) because we could also grind out a win when we weren't at our best'.
