Mourinho accuses Mkhitaryan of "disappearing" during matches

"That is important on the pitch because he's one more option for us and I think it's impossible for [Romelu] Lukaku to play every match, so we need this second option - another man, another striker". "He started the season very well and after that, step by step, he was disappearing. Sometimes they produce a lot, and we have lots of chances and we don't score enough".

The 1-0 midweek loss does not seriously hamper their chances of Champions League progress, but underlines why his exciting attacking options can not be considered the best he has had.

"So I can imagine, next week, you are going to ask - why is this player not playing?"

"I'm a big fan of his, I was surprised he played if I'm being honest, I was surprised he played because they are solid in that group". I think it's quite fair that tomorrow Mkhitaryan is back.

"I was not happy with his last performances", Mourinho said. My boys they didn't play well but they gave everything. You have always the group that played the last match, you have always the group that didn't play, you have one group of, let's say, 10 recovering from the last match and you have another group of eight, nine or 10 that are trying to training.

Much of the problem rests with the out-of-form Romelu Lukaku, whose 11 goals in those first 11 games have been followed by just one since. I chose to play Marcus Rashford and Martial together.

But more recently, a wobble of sorts, with three defeats in seven, starting with that shock defeat at Huddersfield and including a loss at Chelsea and during the week in the final minute at Basel. We had awesome chances a couple of days ago and we couldn't score, today we did it. Then after the goal we couldn't kill the game.
