Mourinho: Brighton Deserved More Than Draw Vs Man United

"In some positions, when you don't have injuries, you have lots of options in other positions", Mourinho said.

Mkhitaryan has been omitted from United's squads during the past two games against Newcastle United and Basel. They were not successful one against one. I love Mourinho but I prefer to watch Barcelona play.

"I want to play Fellaini earlier, with Pogba but I don't know if Pogba is happy to be on the pitch on the fatigue line or if the fatigue reached the line. He's a player that's easy to bring in to the game, so normally he's going to have these periods of 15-20 [minutes] and, one day, we will feel that he's physically ready [to start]", Mourinho added. "The linesman was two metres away, I am maybe 80 metres away, I have no idea", Mourinho said at his post-match press conference. Sometimes to play with too many attacking players doesn't mean you are offensive. It was a very hard game against a brilliant opponent defending well but with a very unsafe counter attack.

He summarised by saying Zlatan studied Luakku keenly when he was still injured and just like many top players, he will have a point to prove when he is given game time.

Next up United head to Watford on Tuesday, and while Mourinho believes United have progressed since their 3-1 loss at Vicarage Road last season he says Marco Silva's outfit are also better than they were last term under Walter Mazzarri.

"I think we had an improvement with (Anthony) Martial". Honestly I think Brighton was very, very good.

"They gave us probably the hardest match we've had this season".

Mourinho gave credit to his team, saying: "We had incredible chances a couple of days ago and we couldn't score, today we did it".
