Only 11 can start - Mourinho bristles at Rashford, Martial questioning

Jose Mourinho brushed aside questions about Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford's happiness at Manchester United.

The Manchester-born forward has struggled for game time since Alexis Sanchez's arrival from Arsenal in January.

Mourinho was even less forthcoming when questioned about Martial's lack of game-time.

With that in mind, Martial and Rashford have often been competing for one spot in the team - they have played just 323 minutes alongside each other in the Premier League this season.

Rashford has started fewer than half of his 29 Premier League appearances so far this season and surprisingly hasn't been named in Jose Mourinho's XI since bagging a brace in a crucial win over Liverpool at Old Trafford last month.

"He is the player with more appearances since I arrived at the club".

United gifting City the title by losing to West Brom came just a week on from them delaying their rivals' celebrations. Previous times, we almost threw it away and that was a feature of every season we won it.


Mourinho replied, "Because I decide that way", when he was asked about Rashford being used, more often than not, off the bench in key fixtures. If you want what I call dry answers, I have dry answers.

"You always go to the one, the answer is if you want what... They know that. Everybody knows, they know and they still smell a chance, but every match that is played, if they don't get points, then they are closer to relegation, but I think they still believe that mathematically it's possible".

Rashford is a hugely promising young footballer who has a bright future ahead of him, and working with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is only going to improve him. We have played well against the top teams.

Mourinho also spoke of Lukaku: the Portuguese boss was asked whether he would sign another striker to provide the Belgian with competition for places, but he insists he is happy with his attacking options. "I tried to raise the level of training and I think I managed to do it because I am really pleased with this week". "Probably I have to reduce and send some away and have a squad of 12 players".

Mourinho told MUTV defenders Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind are all available to return to the squad from their respective injuries for the visit of the Baggies.
