Phil Jones expected to be fit for Manchester United's clash with Huddersfield

Phil Jones expected to be fit for Manchester United's clash with Huddersfield

Meanwhile, Nicky Butt insists Mourinho is interested in United's academy, which he said will never be like some clubs who "cast their net out and trawl them (young players) all in like fish, but then dump them without realising they are just kids".

Rashford, who scored the victor against Benfica, suffered a knee injury and he should be replaced by Anthony Martial in the starting XI.

"A striker can make some mistakes but if he scores, everything is forgotten; a goalkeeper can play a flawless game, but one moment can ruin it".

Said Mourinho: "I knew how good the goalkeeper was, I told the players that".

"Everybody knows the Premier League and knows what it means to play against newly promoted teams". We had a little bit of a strategy, especially on set-pieces to make him uncomfortable.

"Yes, is true I wanted four players in the summer and I think clearly everybody knows the position, maybe you know the player, didn't happen but we adapt to it and try the best we can", he said.

"So at corners we tried to crowd him and put him under pressure, and from free-kicks we knew he risks a lot".

To be sure, Svilar had also done well to deny Matic and Anthony Martial, as United produced nearly a carbon copy of last Saturday's safety-first display in their 0-0 EPL draw with Liverpool.

"Sometimes I feel being good defensively is a crime, but that is a way of getting results". We went to Liverpool with two midfield players and nothing else. "We put men around him on corners so he can not come out", Mourinho said.

Next up, the Red Devils will collide against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

"I am not going to cry over injuries but there is someone else who always does it", the Special One said referring to Conte who has been recently complaining about his team's physical shape.

"It will suit the United camp at the moment to let City get all the credit at the moment", declared Keane.

The 25-year-old's been in great form in the centre of United's defence this term, helping United to nine clean sheets in 12 matches.
