Jamie Carragher names his man for next Manchester United captain

Jamie Carragher names his man for next Manchester United captain

Paul Pogba will miss the Manchester derby on Sunday after Manchester United decided not to appeal against the red card he received in the win at Arsenal.

The midfielder was sent off in the 3-1 win over Arsenal for a stamp on Hector Bellerin, meaning he will be unavailable for next week's derby game against Manchester City.

The three-game suspension comes at a far from ideal time for the player and the team with some enormous matches on the horizon.

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne claims that beating Manchester United will be meaningless if the club end the season without silverware.

City maintained their eight-point lead over United at the top of the Premier League by beating West Ham 2-1 on Sunday afternoon, but speaking after that match De Bruyne was in no mood to discuss Pogba's comments, or any cosmic power, though he did say he would not wish an injury on a fellow player.

Pogba is lauded for his dynamism and power, but what makes him so special is the way he blends those physical traits with so much panache. "But the teams have been playing closed, we have had difficulty finding the spaces there, because there are a lot of people in front of the box".

"I didn't see the red card", Mourinho said.

"But the way we try to play is the same, we put them under pressure".

"City bring their full-backs in narrow while two centre-backs push up the pitch, [so United could] just leave two strikers stretched wide and you play three central midfielders and five at the back, and say to City that's what we'll do, trust that the front two will get into those areas".

"I was trying to think myself what Jose will be thinking. We need to keep focused with whatever we are doing and keep busy with ourselves".
