Man United ready to drop Pogba and Sanchez against Tottenham

- Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez may not be included in Manchester United's team that will face Tottenham in the FA Cup semi final

- Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is said to be furious with their performance against West Brom in their last game

- The Red Devils were beaten 2-1 at home and the defeat gave Manchester City the Premier League title

Manchester United duo of Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez are now said to be facing the possibility of being dropped for the Red Devils' FA Cup semi final tie against Tottenham.

United manager Jose Mourinho is said to be furious with their performance against West Brom in their last Premier League tie where they were beaten 1-0 by their visitors.

The defeat against West Brom handed the title to rivals Manchester City with five games to spare, and Mourinho admitted that the performances of some players had already persuaded him not to start them at Wembley this weekend.

“Rotating is not the right word, if I play a player against Bournemouth and the player is phenomenal, he plays the semi-final.

“So it is not rotating, because rotating looks like a player that plays against Bournemouth is to give a rest to somebody that is going to play against Spurs in the semi-final.

“So the word is not rotation, it is an opportunity for some people to play and to try to get a place in the team for Spurs, and some of the guys who played against West Brom don’t have a place in the team against Spurs. They don’t have a place in the team,” Mourinho was quoted to have said by UK Telegraph.

Meanwhile, Manchester United must defeat Tottenham in the FA Cup semi final as this competition is their only hope of them winning a title this season.

Unlike last season when United won the EFL Cup title and the Europa League, this season has been tough for Jose Mourinho and his men.

Manchester United's last defeat against West Brom did not only make Jose Mourinho angry, but it made many of their fans furious considering the fact that West Brom are at the bottom of the standings.
