“He’s selected for the game,”said the Portuguese, before asking for understanding that there would always be players unlucky to miss out due to the depth of quality within United’s squad.
“I just want to remind you in advance that we can only start with 11. So when tomorrow, you see the team, you could try to speak about the ones that are going to play and not the ones that aren't going to play. We have Lukaku, Rashford, Mata, Alexis, Martial - they all cannot play together, so try to be a little bit happy for the ones that are playing and not to be critical of the ones that are not playing.“
“We decided not to bring Antonio Valencia because his knee is not a knee that needs an artificial pitch at all, so we brought Luke Shaw back to the squad and to the team. I said already [post-Watford] that Luke Shaw is playing tomorrow and, apart from him, we have Diogo, Ashley Young and Darmian ready to play.”

“Valencia is the only one that we need to protect, his clinical situation. Apart from that, we go with everything we have and we have to try to win.“
