Jose Mourinho has warned the likes of Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez that they could lose their places for Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham as he gets set to make changes on Wednesday against Bournemouth. Despite Pogba under-performing, he is clearly still a world-class player when on song and Mourinho has a history of letting top talent go, only to see them flourish elsewhere.
Now aged 36, Carrick is nearing the end of his final season at United as he prepares to retire and step into a coaching role as part of Jose Mourinho's backroom staff.
Pogba's relationship with Mourinho has deteriorated rapidly this season and the 25-year-old was substituted again in Sunday's home defeat by West Brom.
"Some of the guys that played [against West Brom] don't have a place in that team [for Bournemouth]. As I was saying, eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues and the last Premier League was not 20 years ago, was three years ago", Mourinho was quoted as saying by Reuters.
"I trust in my work, that's for sure", said Mourinho.

The AFP has reported one man, 36-year-old Sumaya Abu Awad, saying "I have no fear of dying because there is no life in Gaza ". Israel says it is doing what it must to defend its border, and to stop any of the protesters getting across the fence.
Mourinho said the risk of a red card was partly why Pogba was replaced but stressed the France worldwide was no worse than some of the players who played the full match.
Regarding Pogba's performance, Mourinho said: "It was not just him and he had a yellow card, so he was in a more hard position than others".
"Consistency has nothing to do with age", the United boss said when asked if he was getting the best out of the experienced, established players.
Paul Pogba struggled to reproduce his match-winning performance against Manchester City and was taken off in the 58th minute against West Brom, but Mourinho insists the decision was a effect of the France worldwide receiving a yellow card. "Playing with two midfielders, you can not play with one player at risk of not being able to make a foul".
"You can do it if your team is not losing the ball but our team was losing the ball so easily with the complication".
Instead, Mourinho accused his players of being "masters in complicated football", trying too many tricks and flicks and taking one too many touches against supposedly inferior opposition, who won via Jay Rodriguez's second-half header from a corner despite United dominating possession. "I'm glad I did obviously because it showed little things do register with players".
