Turf Moor, as it happens, was where things really started to go south between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho.

We have seen these bounces from him before - such as when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Mourinho and Pogba revelled in his liberation - but they have seldom lasted.

When United won there in early September 2018, three months before Mourinho's sacking, Pogba insisted on leaving the ground in his chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce instead of joining his Manchester United team-mates on the bus.

Mourinho tried and failed to persuade the France midfielder to at least leave on the team bus before changing vehicles and subsequently admitted that he feared he would lose his job if he tried to force the issue.

"I went to the press conference and when I arrived at the team bus, parked beside it was a Rolls-Royce with his chauffeur," Mourinho explained six months later.

Mourinho went to war with Pogba and look where that got him.

Pogba has never felt pushed out but he has not been indulged to the point of thinking he could continue to drift along either, his relegation to the bench during the autumn a reminder that Solskjaer wanted and expected more.
