EFL Cup: Proud Frank Lampard revels in win over mentor Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has informed Paul Pogba he will not captain Manchester United again due to their strained relationship. "I don't think so", Mourinho said. "No fall-out at all, no problems at all, just one decision that I don't have to explain".

Before the first Derby County penalty was taken, the United manager spoke to Lampard.

Wolverhampton Wanderers' midfielder Joao Moutinho tries to catch Pogba during a Premier League match on Saturday.

Mourinho is said to have reminded his players that nobody is bigger than the club and was furious with Pogba's attitude in recent games.

The Red Devils welcomed the Championship side to Old Trafford in the cup clash as Jose Mourinho came up against his former Chelsea FC vice captain Lampard.

Pogba seems surprised by something said to him by Mourinho - and the pair begin an awkward exchange that lasts two minutes, alongside members of United's coaching staff.

If it was, he would be off sulking and would not have been watching last night's game at Old Trafford.

Even though his form for France in their 2018 World Cup win was much improved and he won many plaudits, Mourinho was hardly complimentary of Pogba's displays, further fuelling the fire of a significant rift between the duo.

He is not cajoling consistent performances out of the team and that, whatever you might think of Pogba, is the overriding issue at Old Trafford right now.

Berbatov added: "As someone who wants Manchester United to do well, I'm fed up of waking up and seeing these headlines".

"Somebody has to miss", said Mourinho.

United started the game in ideal fashion with Juan Mata opening the scoring inside three minutes.

Things got more hard for United when Romero was dismissed for handball outside his area and Derby capitalised through Jack Marriott, but Fellaini forced a shootout with a last-gasp equaliser.

Gone are the days under Sir Alex Ferguson where insubordination would lead to a star player departing Manchester United rather unceremoniously.

Fellaini came to United's rescue five minutes into stoppage-time when the Belgian converted Diogo Dalot's cross with a close-range header, however that was only delaying Mourinho's misery.
