Manchester United trio to miss Brighton fixture this weekend

The trio all missed last Friday's 2-1 victory over Leicester City in the Premier League, with Valencia and Matic carrying minor injuries and Lingard having only recently returned to pre-season training.

United will still be without usual skipper Antonio Valencia on Sunday.

However, speaking ahead of his sides next game away to Brighton on Sunday afternoon, Mourinho insisted he has no interest in what Pogba said to the media and he only cares that the France global continues to produce the goods on the pitch.

"As a new player, you want to have a good performance in your home games and it's exactly the same for me".

"The captains I played under really had that consistency and would still contribute on their bad days and I've got no doubts that he will reach those levels of consistency for United and be a top, top player". "There are things I can not say otherwise I will get fined".

"I know some United fans want a more expansive attacking game and I can understand their frustrations, but the result is the most important thing, especially at the start of the season, and you need to be tactically clever".


"I can not demand more from him, I can not ask more from him".

"He's very polite, he's very educated, he never had a fight with me", Mourinho added. We never had a heated exchange of words, everything is respected, I have no problems at all. So it's not easy to be fined here, so you have to ask him.

"The truth is that we've been together for two years and I can't ask anymore from him".

"'Course he showed desire, he should be showing that every week anyway".

Now, speaking in front of the media at a pre-match conference on Friday afternoon ahead of the upcoming trip to the south coast, Mourinho has plainly reiterated his faith in Pogba.

We thought young guy but good personality, made in the academy, normally a starting line-up player - he has conditions to be captain in the future, and in the [thinking] of this he was the captain and will be the captain again. "I can not demand more from him", Mourinho told reporters on Friday. But it looks like it's not going to end in a transfer and for me is good news that Matteo is staying.
