EPL: Mourinho reveals who new midfielder would replace at Manchester United

Jose Mourinho

United have lost their last two Premier League away games without scoring a goal, which Mourinho indicated is partly due to Pogba's below-par displays.

The Belgium worldwide struck early in each half to secure a quarter-final spot for Jose Mourinho's side and end their run of back-to-back away defeats.

Mata had set up Romelu Lukaku's opener three minutes in before the Belgium striker added a second 10 minutes into the second half to seal the win.

The Belgian bagged his 20th and 21st goal as he remained cool and composed in front of goal.

Mourinho may be forced to sign two midfielders if Marouane Fellaini does not agree a new contract.

"I celebrated, but apparently VAR showed it was offside". Too often their three-man midfield failed to sufficiently cover their full-backs, forcing Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez to drop deeper, meaning any gaining of possession was largely pointless with no out-ball of real note available in the opposition half.

The United manager planned to start Pogba for the 2-0 victory despite rumours of unrest between the pair in the wake of the 1-0 defeat by Newcastle United last weekend, with Pogba himself admitting that he "needs to get better".

Huddersfield looked intent on making the most of their reprieve and, early after the restart, an Ince free-kick deflected off the wall and sat up invitingly for Rajiv van La Parra who miscued his attempted volley on the six-yard line.

"We are going to face the game in the best possible way".

United will host Brighton and Hove Albion in the quarter-final. Huddersfield were on an attacking spree and could have made United pay for their defensive lapses but the backline of Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw and Young didn't make any mistakes.

Eligible for England and Scotland, the United boss said he would be straight on the phone to the Lancastrian midfielder if he was McLeish. "They were offensive and risky". What they're sending us has made it unclear and confusing. I want the players to feel yes, it was offside and let's move on without being sat unhappy around computers.

The French global pulled out of the fifth round visit to Huddersfield on the morning of the match due to illness, leaving Mourinho to respond to questions about his absence testily. It was the kind of game where a draw wouldn't be a drama.
