Jose Mourinho may be partially at fault for Paul Pogba ’s sending off in Manchester United’s superb 3-1 win against Arsenal . The Frenchman was dismissed with just under 20 minutes remaining in an enthralling game, one of the best in the Premier League for some time.

"I didn't really speak after the game - I didn't have time - but I think I know Hector as well and I would never give him a tackle like this," Pogba said.

"Unfortunately, for me, I thought he would put his feet there and he was in a position that was a disadvantage for me so I did it.

"It looks very bad but the intention wasn't like that. They had the decision, the referee got the red card and that's football."

The midfielder has been catching flack recently for stating that he wishes Pep Guardiola's all-conquering Manchester City team would pick up some injuries.

The City boss and Kevin De Bruyne refused to add to the controversy, saying they wished Pogba was available for the upcoming derby.

Outclassed once again by their city rivals, it seems.
