  • Mourinho: Face the pressure or stay at home

Key stat: Fellaini's victor on Tuesday was United's first goal at Old Trafford in three Champions League games this season.

"Because then I know I have a warrior who is going to give everything to the team and hopefully he knows what he can have from me, and then we just go out there and ball".

Mourinho called into question some of his players' "heart" and desire after that match, so his decision to drop Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba to the bench raised eyebrows nearly as much as his decision to omit Alexis Sanchez entirely.

"I know he is happy here, I know he wants to stay and I know the board are working to make that happen".

"They had moments of good football, hypothetical attractive goals, but then also moments of pressure, a lack of confidence that frustrated us".

Mourinho had threatened to make changes to the team that drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace and followed through, with Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku benched and Alexis Sanchez left out of the squad.

It wasn't just about United's late victor.

The relief around Old Trafford when Fellaini turned to fire his effort through the legs of defender Loris Benito was so pronounced that United's emotional manager Jose Mourinho picked up and hurled the pitchside drinks holder to the ground.

"(Lindelof) does the scan (Tuesday) but, by the experience of the medical department and the feelings of the player, he has a muscular problem and a muscular problem takes time", added Mourinho, who said Lindelof would be out for "quite a while".

"I was not unhappy with the players".

Fellaini's goal was the hosts' first home goal in Europe this season. Mourinho was wary afterwards of predicting how far his stuttering team can go in the competition after Christmas, but the 55-year-old did not miss the chance to send a message to his detractors.

"For some of my lovers, for those who like stats, 14 seasons in the Champions League, 14 times qualify through the group phases", said Mourinho on his personal record as boss of Porto, Chelsea and Real Madrid as well as United.

And the two years where I didn't play Champions League, I won the Europa League twice, so in 16 years, 14 times I qualify and twice I play Europa League and I won.
