Manchester United make the trip to the north-east this Sunday, to take on Newcastle United.

This afternoon Jose Mourinho held his pre-match press conference ahead of the Premier League game.

One subject Jose was asked about related to Paul Pogba who didn`t feature at all in our last Premier League game, against Huddersfield Town and whether he`d feature against Newcastle United.

However, if the journalist who asked the question was looking for a bit of controversy from Jose`s answer he was going to be disappointed with the boss replying,

‘Paul had a very professional behavior. This week was not different to what Paul is every week. He works well, he`s a good professional. He likes to train. I`ve never had a single problem with him. He likes to train.

‘For me Paul is a midfield player. He`s not a left back, he`s not a striker. When people ask his best position: he`s a midfield player. It depends on the tactical system, but he will always be a midfielder.

‘Then with so many opinions, and we are in a world of opinions, people can get confused. There is no confusion between me and Paul. It`s difficult to play a midfielder with more potential than Paul.’

But will he start on Sunday Jose?
