Europa final would be 'perfect' end to season, says Mourinho

"You know, we have been together for nearly 10 months or something like that", the United boss said ahead of Thursday's Europa League quarter-final second leg with Anderlecht. Mourinho was criticized for his treatment of the midfielder.

Outcome? In the end, Schweinsteiger exited Old Trafford in March to join MLS club Chicago Fire, but he left on good terms.

His most recent cameo against Anderlecht was as unimpressive as the whole of this season on a personal level and barring very few of stand-out performances - against West Ham in the EFL cup, Middlesbrough and Watford in the league, Martial has nearly been anonymous, completely in contrast to the attention he was receiving and rightly so, last season.

"He is working now, he is improving", Mourinho said.

Misplaced passing and under-performing players continued to hamper United.

It's not easy to find somewhere to exercise in the middle of Manchester, but Anderlecht left their base at the Hilton hotel on Thursday afternoon and did some warm-up routines at a park in the Castlefield area of the city. The Portuguese manager has challenged a long list of the club's players.

However, Mourinho's men were still made to sweat.

Mourinho's side are now fifth in the Premier League on 60 points, four behind Manchester City but with a game in hand.

For now, though, it's highly uncertain whether the USA government will turn a new leaf in its views on marijuana. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus four percentage points.

The Red Devils' formidable home record in the Europa League also puts them firmly in the drivers' seat, winning every game at the Theatre of Dreams in the competition thus far, scoring 13 goals and conceding just once. He has since scored 11 goals and is a key figure in Mourinho's squad. Even if you win the duel in the air, it can be really hard to score, so in this moment Marcus is one of the boys we trust.

After enduring some struggles this season, the 19-year-old is now well and truly generating excitement again. Rooney missed that match with an ankle injury and hasn't played for United since their 0-0 English Premier League draw with West Brom, at the start of the month.

Mourinho's words to Martial this week offered hope.

United's chances became more clear-cut in the second half.

Jose Mourinho is fast running out of centre-backs.

"I can say priority for Sergio to play in the Europa League, yes, but we had some matches when David played".

However, Mourinho is demanding more intensity from his £26million summer signing in United's domestic games.

Outcome? Remains to be seen.
