Having scored in their first two Premier League matches of the season, he has managed only one club goal since then, which came in a 4-1 victory over Newcastle on November 18.
Pogba scored his first goal for club or country in more than four months with a spectacular freekick in France's win over Russian Federation in St Petersburg on Tuesday night, but Mourinho declined the opportunity to praise him yesterday (fri).
Should Mourinho retain his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation against Swansea, the decision about his starting line-up may be aided by the fact that young Scotland global Scott McTominay, who has played in Pogba's position for two of those past three fixtures, has returned from worldwide duty with a calf injury.
Meanwhile Mourinho indicated Luke Shaw could win a reprieve despite his recent fierce criticism of the defender. "Ask him when you get a chance when he thinks about it".
"If he [Young] is unavailable, then Shaw is always an option", Mourinho said in his pre-match press conference on Friday.

France's midfielder Paul Pogba reacts during an global friendly football match between Russian Federation and France at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Saint Petersburg on March 27, 2018. He plays the football that I wanted to play with Manchester United. But I think he's very fine after the injury. "I needed more time for this process, which I unfortunately didn't get".
Only midfielders Nemanja Matic and McTominay, playing in place of Pogba, were spared Mourinho's wrath and the United boss faces a stern test of his man-management skills to ensure there is no residual effect from that public humiliation of his stars.
