"Well, you have to bear in mind that Alexis Sanchez was in the stands, Jesse Lingard was in the stands", Mourinho told reporters. I think if you've got a player like Lukaku who has proved himself over a long period of time, then you play them through those bits of bad form.

José Mourinho has vowed to clear his name by fighting an FA charge for swearing into a TV camera in Portuguese after Manchester United's win over Newcastle United this month.

Asked if a United return was a possibility, Mourinho said: "No".

"One day will be and one day he will score and one day his confidence levels will be back to normal, which clearly they are not there but I always feel that."

Manchester United lost their Champions League game against Juventus 1-0 on Tuesday and with that the pressure in back on the Red Devils to qualify for the knockout stages.

"Some of them the national teams, they were very professional with us and send the players back and we could start the process early, but some of them wouldn't and they kept the players". Not with the results, obviously, but I want to keep on going to try to help the team in the way that I can.

The United boss added on the England worldwide: "He came from the World Cup with that problem, he thought wrongly that the holiday period would bring things to normality, then he thought wrongly that working would improve it and then he felt in an impossible situation to play football". In this moment he's nearly there because of the team's needs.

"Can he help us in the next match?"
