PAUL POGBA was left fuming after Jose Mourinho hauled him off for Alexis Sanchez in the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace.
The Manchester United midfielder, 25, was visibly angry at being substituted during yet another drab showing at Old Trafford.

Pogba was taken off with a little over 20 minutes to go at Old Trafford as Mourinho chased an unlikely winner.
United had looked devoid of ideas straight from kick-off, with fans even claiming they desperately wanted Wilfried Zaha back.
Mourinho’s side took 12 shots during the game but hit the target just five times as they struggled to get to grips with the game.
The Portuguese boss has been aiming to see his side in a Champions League position by the time Big Ben’s bells chime on December 31.

However that task now looks almost impossible – and the frustration plastered on Pogba’s face when he was subbed off said it all.
United had won their last six against Palace and not lost to them in 18 top flight clashes.
The only positive Mourinho could garner from the game was the fact it was their first clean sheet in nine games.
After the match, the boss said: “It was a game we need to win and my feeling is that it was not from the heart.
