There's A Big Surprise In Manchester United's Starting Line-Up To Face Huddersfield This Afternoon

Ahead of Manchester United's Premier League tie against Huddersfield this afternoon, Jose Mourinho has decided to bench Paul Pogba in a somewhat controversial move.

Pogba was substituted in the second half against Tottenham on Wednesday night after a below par performance at Wembley.

Mourinho and Pogba's animated conversation on the touchline during Wednesday's game caused plenty to speculate. It appeared that the French midfielder questioned the manager's tactics, prompting a fiery conversation.

And with his absence now a huge talking point on social media, it leaves plenty talking about the pair's relationship in general.

Here's how the rest of Twitter reacted to the news that Pogba is on the bench at Old Trafford this afternoon:

Thoughts on Pogba's absence from the starting XI this weekend?
