Paul Pogba vs. Jose Mourinho

WATCH: Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba had an awkward exchange as the midfielder returned to training after being stripped of the Manchester United vice-captaincy.

"I repeated what I said in the last match, that their [the opponent's] dressing room was one with belief, because it [the match] was open and they played quite well", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"The same person that decides Paul is not second captain anymore is exactly the same person that decides Paul was second captain - myself".

"I am the manager, I make these decisions, no fallout at all, no problem at all".

On Monday, however, Pogba hinted on Twitter that his comments had been misinterpreted to cause "drama".

Pogba performed impressively as France won the World Cup this year, scoring in the 4-2 final win over Croatia, but Mourinho forewent a pre-season opportunity to praise his player and pointedly questioned his capacity to focus over the course of a whole campaign.

Lampard, who played under Mourinho at Chelsea, was rewarded for naming a full-strength side, in contrast to many managers in this competition, fielding the same team that beat Brentford 3-1 in the Championship on Saturday.

Antonio Valencia is United's club captain.

Mourinho declined to give a specific reason for his latest decision in what has developed into an ongoing spat between him and the 25-year-old.

Asked just before kick-off about Pogba's absence from the squad, Mourinho insisted the former Juventus star had been "rested".

The Pogba row overshadowed a superb achievement by Lampard, who only took his first managerial role at Derby in the close-season.

Moments later, United goalkeeper Sergio Romero saw red for handling another Wilson effort outside the area.

But in the fifth minute of added time, substitute Fellaini headed in a Diogo Dalot cross to force the shootout.
