Lampard makes his mark by bucking League Cup trend

Lampard makes his mark by bucking League Cup trend

Jose Mourinho stripped Paul Pogba of the vice-captaincy but denied any fallout with the midfielder after Manchester United surprisingly tumbled out of the Carabao Cup to Derby.

"Mourinho's message to the United squad, delivered at Carrington today, was created to underline his authority and remind the players that he is in charge", added The Times report.

The pair already had a pretty fractured relationship but after the 1-1 draw with Wolves the former Juventus midfielder was clearly not happy with the team's tactics saying, "When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack".

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 club said the increase was "primarily due to player salary uplifts related to participation in the UEFA Champions League" but Alexis Sanchez's January arrival will also have made an impact.

"We are here to attack", Pogba told the media after the match.

Manager Jose Mourinho told SkySports that Mourinho is no longer vice-captain. "I am the manager I make these decisions, no fall out at all, no problem at all", Mourinho said.

Another source, close to Pogba's agent Mino Raiola, has said they believe Mourinho has lost his greatest asset: the ability to cajole, read and relate to his players.

Pogba can't go anywhere until January, so he is guaranteed to be at Old Trafford for three months.

And he got away with a few nervy moments at Old Trafford, as Derby pulled off a brilliant upset.

He insisted that both Derby and Wolves deserved the results and it is worrying as a Manchester United fan as Mourinho's men have no excuse for their shoddy performances.

"Through those young mid-twenties, he upped my level and Chelsea's level".

Plenty of managers cite the need for their first choice players to rest, but Lampard said the natural progress of the season will provide opportunities for most of his squad.

But in the fifth minute of added time, substitute Fellaini headed in a Diogo Dalot cross to force the shootout.
