Souness: Milner is a real player compared to selfish Pogba

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, believes Memphis Depay can still realise his potential, despite failing to make the grade at Old Trafford.

Despite that strong display, Mourinho said he would leave the teenager out of his line-up to face Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday, instead selecting him for Tuesday's League Cup third-round home tie against Championship side Derby.

Injury initially prevented 19-year-old Dalot from so far making his United debut following a £19m switch from Porto and he has played twice at Under-23 level in recent weeks.

"I think is hard enough, he doesn't need to face more difficulty from the accumulation of matches".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has acknowledged that he has been left impressed by the progress of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"I want him to play totally fresh".

"Listen, he's got an ego, that's not hard to see on social media, this boy's got an ego, wants to be looked at and talked about as the best player".

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has had a light jab at Paul Pogba for his ridiculously long run up prior to his penalty goal against Young Boys in United's Champions League opener on Wednesday.

Wolves held their own against Manchester City last month, drawing 1-1 at Molineux, and Nuno said: "There is no game I recall that we changed".

"No injuries from the match, small things but nothing important", Mourinho added. "I don't want to say was Bailly or (Phil) Jones (before) and that it is now Smalling or Lindelof".

"I think he has to change".

Before the game, Mourinho had urged his team to follow the example of Swiss tennis great Roger Federer and show they were capable of winning on different surfaces. Rojo did play for the U23's last week but is still not ready for first team action just yet.

"Tomorrow, it is two good teams trying to achieve the best result possible".
