However, the club have revealed that the midfielder missed the clash with Huddersfield Town due to illness.

United still won comfortably, thanks to Lukaku's double, although victory could have been even more emphatic but for video assistant referee (VAR) Neil Swarbrick ruling out a Juan Mata 'goal' late in the first half in an incredibly close offside call.

Romelu Lukaku netted at the start of each half, while Juan Mata controversially had a goal disallowed on the stroke of the break, which saw the Terriers exit at the fifth round for a second year running.

"I am up for VAR to be honest, it is good for football".

"It's an experimental period, " Mourinho said.

"I decided to do that". Most obviously, Saturday made me wonder how far we can trust the technology to arrive at incontestable decisions, which is strange given that is the point of it.

He skilfully gathered the ball and rounded keeper Jonas Lossl before tapping into the open goal, only to see referee Kevin Friend seek clarification from VAR official Neil Swarbrick.

"Protocol says it needs to be a 'clear and obvious' situation and it was not clear or obvious".

And so, Mourinho turned his attention towards Sevilla - and back towards Pogba - as he prepared for the first leg tie and the possibility of welcoming back Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia from injury. Was Mata's knee just ahead of the last defender when Ashley Young passed? "Other than that, I like it".

Manchester United recently booked their place in the quarter-final of football's oldest competition, FA Cup, courtesy of a brilliant brace from Romelu Lukaku, but that certainly wasn't the only highlight of the night. I think maybe it's because he's this kind of kid profile: a normal haircut, no tattoos, no big cars, no big watches, humble kid.

Also, the club terminated the contracts of chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman on Tuesday. We knew that he waited for the people to see it on TV, to analyse it.

'I have never understood why he chooses not to celebrate some of his goals. This game has had a bit of everything; games with lots of goals, lots of quality, quality players on display.

I've always thought that video officiating was a good thing.

Chris: The linesman kept his flag down so VAR has been used to change a correct decision to an incorrect decision.

"It's a score nobody wants", said Carvalhal.

Is the technology really up to the job?

"I believe if you had asked us and the Sheffield Wednesday manager, we'd have gone to penalties".
