Jesse Lingard has, somewhat surprisingly, emerged as another confirmed starter, forcing the likes of Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Rashford to warm the bench for the most part.

"I am not afraid to play against the big teams and I respect the small teams, and I prepare a match against a big team in the same way I prepare a match against a small team". That appeared to be a veiled reference to City buying Ederson Moraes and Aymeric Laporte on the back of signing Claudio Bravo and John Stones.

Meanwhile, Mourinho said that the United squad needs improvement in the off-season, and that current squad members need to be "more consistent" and show "more quality" on the pitch. The club had on him great many years playing football and now when his body says is enough the club and myself will want to keep the man. Not two, three or four - a lot of points. I can give you the guarantee that the club doesn't want to sell him and I can give you the guarantee that we don't have any approach from him, from his agent or from any club.

"I trust some [players] over others that could bridge that gap". That's normal. I know the players.

'Of course, some of the players I am totally convinced are going to make it. "If he's now on 200, I hope, next season, he goes into the 250s". And some others, I don't believe they are going to make it. He's a proper man. Football is not full of them, and not just football, society's not full of them, so when you find one of them, you have to value and you have to keep. You buy a central defender, you don't like, and you buy another one.

The club's longest-serving player, Carrick underwent a procedure for an irregular heart rhythm in November 2017 before returning to Jose Mourinho's squad shortly afterwards.

The Red Devils will be looking to extend their lead for second place to six points in the Premier League and Jose Mourinho will want his side to use the remaining two fixtures as momentum boosts as his team face his former employers, Chelsea, in the FA Cup final.

"What does he need to do to impress me?"

I think we need both things that you mentioned.
