"I repeated what I said in the last match, that their [the opponent's] dressing room was one with belief, because it [the match] was open and they played quite well", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"The person who made the decision to be second captain was also me".

"I am the manager I make these decisions, no fall out at all, no problem at all", says the Manchester United manager.

Mourinho paid the price for making nine changes in a thrilling 2-2 draw at Old Trafford before spot-kicks with Paul Pogba rested on another day dominated by the Frenchman's frosty relationship with his manager.

Rewarding Pogba's outburst in this way would set a unsafe precedent, particularly at a time when player-power is more prevalent than ever.

It is not the first time the attitude of United's players has been questioned this season.

Pogba has deputised as skipper in the absence of club captain Antonio Valencia on three occasions this season against Leicester and Brighton in the Premier League and a Champions League trip to Young Boys.

World Cup victor Pogba, 25, was told of the decision in the build-up to Tuesday's Carabao Cup exit to Derby.

'People saying Mourinho is causing problems, taking the captaincy off him, but he's not really a captain is he, Pogba, in terms of how he plays, he's letting his agent speak negatively about the club.

Mourinho is reportedly unhappy that Pogba elected to rehab a hamstring injury in Miami as opposed to remaining in Manchester to do so.

"You feel like you've done your work when you come to Old Trafford and go against Jose Mourinho and world class players".

It is unknown whether Pogba will return to Mourinho's starting line-up for the clash at the London Stadium. But It's easier to take a manager out of the situation than a player.

On Tuesday, Mourinho insisted that there wasn't any fallout between the two.

Manchester United said its employee benefit expenses for the year rose 12.3% to 295.9 million pounds, primarily due to higher player wages.

Pogba watched from the stands as United exited the Carabao Cup in the third round for the first time since 2007.

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