Mourinho reveals why he is not picking Fred in Man Utd team

World Cup bulking hampered Man United form – Lukaku

"I think that when the team is defensively stronger and doesn't need in midfield people who are more anxious about giving balance in the team than creativity, and the day we are stronger defensively, then the horizons change for Fred".

The 20-time English champions will welcome Fulham to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon in pursuit of their first Premier League victory since a 2-1 win against Bournemouth on 3 November.

United's title hopes have already all but gone and they lie eight points off the top four after 15 matches, having failed to win any of their last four domestic games - even if there were signs of the "mad dogs" Mourinho has been calling for in the midweek draw with Arsenal.

"Fulham is a big game now".

'There are special players with special characteristics and just to give you a couple of examples, [Ander] Herrera, [Marcus] Rashford are the kind of players that even if their game was not phenomenal, that intensity, that desire, that passion, that sacrifice is always present.

"I feel ready now for a run in the side and as long as the coach needs me I will be ready for him".

United twice came from behind against Arsenal - fast becoming a feature of the season - to prove they are not ready to throw in the towel and Dalot insists the whole squad is behind the manager. I said to him, 'Sead, you had a very good match and offensively you gave us a lot of chances. For me it is very good. "The spirit and fight is there and we will get there".

After the game, while speaking to reporters, Arsenal boss Unai Emery was asked whether he felt "frustrated" at the result and the manner of the draw but the Spaniard responded brilliantly.
