The United manager dropped Pogba from the starting line-up for the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town last Saturday, but Mourinho insists that he has a good relationship with the Frenchman.

Mourinho, in fact, claims that the 24-year-old is still far from the finished article and has much of his potential still to fill.

"I had a few laughing over the past week because I heard and watched, read a few things, and I'm not English but I think I understand English enough when you want to say box to box", Mourinho a news conference on Friday.

'But with some comments from some important people in football I got a little confused.

"Paul had a very professional behavior". The week was not different to what Paul is every week.

"They should give one (to) the guy that behaves best on the touchline and it should be the fourth official to vote". If our players continue the good work at Tyneside, I don't see why we can not return home with all three points. He likes to train.

For a man that has enjoyed plenty of success on English soil, including winning three Premier League titles, it is somewhat surprising that the Portuguese has failed to win in his six top-flight visits to St James' Park.

United will also be without Daley Blind this weekend as Mourinho has confirmed the Dutchman is still nursing an ankle problem that's hampered him in recent weeks.

"I lost and I drew a few times, I hope the result is different but I know the characteristics of the game will not be hard", Mourinho said.

"I think it's hard, honestly, I've always felt attractive matches but hard".

"I think they are a good team, I think they had a very good transfer window with Kenedy and (Islam) Slimani - they are two players that I know very well and can really improve their team".

Mourinho indicated full-back Luke Shaw is set to sign a new long-term contract after the 22-year-old worked his way back into the first-team plans. Then, when your team loses the ball, you have to go to the other box because I think this is the meaning of the phrase box-to-box.

It has been claimed Manchester United offered the England worldwide a lucrative contract last summer to snare him away from the north London club but the striker turned his back on them.
