"We are going to be in difficulty again to build the team", he explained.

"This year, as we're facing even more problems, it proves what I said when the season started: that it would be very tough for us".

"We don't have many - with all the respect, hope people understand what I mean - we don't have many "mad dogs". Season after season, two of these teams are staying outside the top four.

Mourinho, under increasing pressure after his team fell eight points behind fourth-placed Arsenal at the weekend, cut a confrontational figure during a short interview with MUTV. When you play Europa League you normally play with second choices and you can give a good rest to your (first team) players compared to those in the Champions League, where we have to play in the maximum of our potential. We need a good run of results and I think we need not to waste points where we shouldn't waste. Now the target has changed.

Mourinho, however, was confident Rashford would recover in time for Arsenal despite suffering an injury which, according to the United manager, would leave some players out of action for "two weeks".

Richard Shelby said he wouldn't rule out supporting the resolution this time when it comes up for a full vote . Graham said he would not vote for the Yemen resolution.

"United should never be in seventh place. the investment Everton made was phenomenal and obviously there was a great improvement in that team from last season", Mourinho added.

Mourinho's supposed comments came after the Portuguese said the way United players are now performing is all down to their character, not his tactics.

"If our game was today, I'd say Jones is not playing, Smalling is not playing and Bailly is not playing but we will have to wait".

A classic Premier League rivalry will be renewed in the final match of Gameweek 15, as Manchester United play hosts to Arsenal at Old Trafford on Wednesday. We were waiting to see who could and couldn't [play] and I think we are going to be in a similar situation.

Daily Record had reported the "virus" incident and quoted an Old Trafford insider who said, "Jose called Pogba a virus in front of all the players".
