Mourinho: Why I Dropped Man Utd Star For UCL Opener

Man Utd Handed Huge Boost As Key Man Looks Set For Early Injury Return

Jose Mourinho believes that scoring in his first Champions League match for Manchester United will keep Romelu Lukaku's confidence at a high level.

He said: "After 2-0 I think everything changed and we stopped to play, stopped to think, stopped to play seriously".

"Probably the players felt the game was under control at 2-0 but football is football, you have to respect opponents".

"We're going to play the system the manager thinks is the best". We lost position, our shape, we lost balls in easy situations.

"So we need this and in the Premier League and the Champions League I have to choose the players in relation to the quality".

"I want to be the third-choice 'keeper this season but wouldn't rule out pushing for the No 1 spot", the Stretford-born stopper told Independent.ie earlier this year. "To play my first match at Old Trafford is something I have really waited for". I just know from experience it's a muscular injury.

Pogba looks set for a spell on the sidelines after limping off with what appeared to be a hamstring injury. "Squads are for injuries, squads are for suspensions".

Mourinho opted instead to pick Pogba and Nemanja Matic with Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick on the bench, leaving no room for the club's reigning player of the year.

Herrera has made three appearances for the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League champions this season, but is yet to play a full 90 minutes.

Jose Mourinho's initial prognosis was to expect Pogba would be out for a "few weeks", and he will certainly be missing for Sunday's league clash with Everton.

The Portuguese however slammed his players for their many missed chances and complacency in the second half - a display he referred to as playing "Playstation football".
