Ed Woodward says Manchester United's history 'demands' they compete for trophies

Chris Smalling is expected to sign a new contract with Manchester United despite speculation about his future at Old Trafford, according to reports in the British media.

Manchester United crashed out of the Carabao Cup in a penalty shoot-out to Derby with Pogba watching from the stands.

The French World Cup victor suggested United need to "attack, attack, attack" when they play at Old Trafford as he hinted Mourinho's negative tactics were restricting the team's ambition and Mourinho has been quick to respond with a very public punishment for one of his star players.

Paul Pogba recently claimed that he has a very professional relationship with Jose Mourinho and he is not certain what the future holds for him - hinting at the fact that he could very well be on his way out.

"We are committed to our philosophy of blending top academy graduates with world class players", Woodward said.

The Times are reporting that Jose Mourinho has ripped into midfielder Paul Pogba and stated that he will captain the club again in front of his teammates.

Up until this point, all those rumours had no solid base but now that the player has himself hinted at a possible exit clubbed with the Barcelona scouts things are certainly not looking good for the United fans. "Just one decision which I don't have to explain".

Pogba has captained United this season in the absence of defender Antonio Valencia. I would lie if I said we threw the match away.

Eight minutes later, Romero was dismissed for handling outside the box and Derby grabbed what they thought was the victor when United's substitute keeper Lee Grant parried a shot from Mason Mount and Jack Marriott nodded in the loose ball. I wanted to bring a team who could really compete.

"I'm shell shocked. What a performance", declared Lampard. "The feeling I got from it was enormous, it's an incredible feeling for me". To go against world-class players and play that way, it's right up there.
