Manchester United are backing José Mourinho in his power struggle with Paul Pogba, with the hierarchy supportive of his decision to strip the midfielder of the vice-captaincy.

'If Mourinho goes you won't see a new Pogba, ' the former Liverpool defender told Sky Sports.

"The person who made the decision to be second captain was also me. No fallout, no problems at all just one decision that I don't have to explain", he said.

Jose Mourinho might have denied there was any falling out between himself and Paul Pogba but the images from the Manchester United training ground suggest that might have been a lie.

Perhaps fueled by the situation, Pogba, the day after Guardiola's comments, scores twice to lead Man United's sensational comeback from 2-0 down to beat Man City and postpone the club's eventual title celebrations.

'Now another question is should Mourinho be getting more out of a £90m player?

Mourinho gave Pogba the captain's armband at the beginning of the season.

The latest clash between the two figures comes after Mourinho stated that he had removed Pogba as the "second captain" at the club behind Antonio Valencia.

The Pogba row overshadowed a superb achievement by Lampard, who only took his first managerial role at Derby in the close-season.

"It's right up there", said Lampard when asked how the trumph compared to his highs as a player.

Moments later, United goalkeeper Sergio Romero saw red for handling another Wilson effort outside the area.

Pogba watched from the stands as United exited the Carabao Cup in the third round for the first time since 2007. It had taken a last-gasp header from United substitute Marouane Fellaini to take the contest into a shootout.
