Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho reacted to a damaging 2-0 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur by dropping star midfielder Paul Pogba to the bench for Saturday's visit of Huddersfield.

Pogba was hauled off by Mourinho after an hour at Wembley in midweek with his place being handed to 21-year-old Scott McTominay.

And Mourinho has called on the French international, who cost United a then world record ?89 million in 2016, to improve.

"Paul is a young player, below 25, of course he has some things to improve," Mourinho said on Friday.

"But it is not Paul, it is every player. Every player has a chance to improve until the end of his career, especially the ones below 26, 27. They always have areas to improve."

Mourinho makes four changes in all with Ashley Young, Phil Jones and Anthony Martial also dropping to the bench to be replaced by Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Juan Mata respectively.

Alexis Sanchez is also handed his Old Trafford bow as a United player following his move from Arsenal last month.
