Paul Pogba has been left shocked after being dropped from the Man United first team for the last two Premier League matches against Arsenal and Fulham.

Despite enjoying a stellar World Cup campaign in the summer as France won the tournament, Pogba has been unable to translate those displays to club level and has clashed with Man United boss Jose Mourinho since the start of the season.

Mourinho has made a number of direct and indirect comments in the media about Pogba's form, and hasn't started the French star since the 2-2 draw against Southampton.

According to The Guardian, Pogba is shocked at not featuring from the start against Arsenal and Fulham and is considering holding talks with Mourinho to resolve the matter.

Pogba played 15 minutes against Arsenal but didn't play at all against Fulham, with Mourinho opting to use the inexperienced Scott McTominay instead.

Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in the summer, with a return to Juventus and a transfer to PSG both discussed as a possibility.
