This Is What We Need For Top Four - Jose Mourinho

José Mourinho withheld team news from Manchester United's in-house TV channel after admitting he will have "difficulty" putting a team together to face Arsenal in the Premier League.

Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian and Diogo Dalot - who have made two Premier League starts between them this season - are the only defenders certain to be available to play Unai Emery's side at Old Trafford on Wednesday. I said my hopes and targets were by the end of December to be in that position [in the top four].

"Man United have gone to a new low for me", Dixon said. "Very hard match for us but a very hard match for them in spite of our problems, with players, with selections in spite of that it won't be easy".

Mourinho does seem to be trying everything to get us back into the groove of things.

"I think far from a miracle, we just need to not be so unlucky with problems that we have, we need some players to perform better, and we need the team to perform better but far from a miracle".

"When you play Europa - I have done that - it's not the motivation for the club but it's good to develop the team and to have people fresh".

José Mourinho has retracted his claim that Manchester United now need "a miracle" to finish in the top four, but opted against making any firm predictions other than to say he was confident his team would finish above Everton.

Dier's goal and Harry Kane's ensuing penalty, saw Arsenal trail at the interval, but Emery sent on Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey in a bold double substitution, with both playing key roles in their side's turnaround.

United face a tough task against the in-form Arsenal, and Mourinho seems anxious Emery would be watching MUTV ahead of their clash.

"But then I believe we are again going to have the spirit to fight and to try to win the match". "He couldn't play in Kiev in the Europa League or yesterday, and at the moment, I don't know if he can play in Manchester".

It was in the sixth minute of stoppage time when Divock Origi scored the winning goal after Jordan Pickford's comical error . It shocked me the other day when Jeff Stelling said on Soccer Saturday that Burnley were the favourites for relegation.
