The two stars were surprisingly left out of the starting line-up to face Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday evening.

Pogba and Sanchez were unused substitutes as the Red Devils recorded a 2-0 win thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.

"It's just the team that I think is the best team to try to win the match," Mourinho told the club's official website.
"We don't have a match in two days or a reason to think about another match.
"This is the only match to think about and I'm playing the players that I believe deserve to play."
