Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba have frosty exchange

Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba have frosty exchange

Rio Ferdinand has congratulated Frank Lampard after Derby County beat Manchester United in the League Cup third round at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

The subsequent shoot-out saw a procession of deftly converted spot-kicks before, with the score poised at 8-7 to Derby, Phil Jones saw his effort saved by Scott Carson.

"I'm shell-shocked. To go down early at Old Trafford and play as well as they did was superb".

"To have the personality to step up and take penalties and perform the way they did, I'm just a proud manager, they were great", he added. "I'm a bit shell shocked (but) in a good way", said Lampard.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Paul Pogba has faulted Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho for applying the wrong tactics in Saturday's 1-1 home draw with Wolves.

"Somebody has to miss", said Mourinho.

Mourinho is said to have reminded his players that nobody is bigger than the club and was furious with Pogba's attitude in recent games.

Only a stoppage time header from united substitute Marouane Fellaini had stopped them from victory.

The Hawks won't be the only ones in the Earl Thomas sweepstakes, as he has been linked to the Cowboys for quite some time. Dallas reportedly already offered a second-round pick for Thomas, but the Seahawks wanted more.

Jose Mourinho stripped Paul Pogba of the vice-captaincy but denied any fallout with the midfielder after Manchester United surprisingly tumbled out of the Carabao Cup to Derby.

However, Lampard eventually had the last laugh after Derby edged United in the penalty shootout to progress to the next stage.

Sources close to the club were not surprised by the latest development, which will only increase speculation as to whether Pogba will stay at Old Trafford.

"We practice penalties and we see it in training and when we get past the sixth penalty I know we're in trouble with Bailly and Jones."

England under-19 global Phil Foden was involved in the opening two goals, scored by Gabriel Jesus and Riyad Mahrez, before sealing the win with his first senior goal.

Fulham's Cyrus Christie scored with a stunning long-range strike as they ran out 3-1 winners at Millwall, while Andros Townsend grabbed two goals for Crystal Palace as they triumphed 3-0 at former Premier League side West Bromwich Albion.

Harvey Elliott has become the youngest-ever player to feature for Fulham at 15 years and 174 days.
