Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said he hopes to have some of his key players fit for Wednesday’s clash with Sevilla in the Champions League.
United overcame Huddersfield 2-0 in the FA Cup on Saturday without a host of first-team players.
Marcus Rashford, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Marouane Fellaini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic all missed out due to injury, while Paul Pogba was sidelined by illness.
Mourinho’s men next travel to Spain for a Champions League last-16 first leg against Sevilla in midweek, before hosting Chelsea at Old Trafford this weekend.
“I didn’t rest one single player, so we had every player available here.
“I brought two kids (Ethan Hamilton and Angel Gomes) that played 90 minutes yesterday (for the U23s) because I don’t have another player.
“Can we recover some of them for Wednesday? I believe so.
“Rashford, Herrera, Valencia, I think they have a chance. Paul (Pogba), I don’t know.
“Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Marouane, Zlatan – I don’t think they have any chance, so we arrive at this crucial moment with some problems.
“But I think mentality is very important. And we have a strong team, strong bonding, strong team mentality.
“We know it is a very difficult match – but we go for it,” Mourinho told reporters.
