Jose Mourinho urges Anthony Martial to start delivering for Manchester United

Manchester United's French striker Anthony Martial (2L) scores his team's first goal during the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and Middlesbrough at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on December 31, 2016.

Mourinho, who has previously criticised Luke Shaw publicly, wants Martial to be more like Marcus Rashford.

"It was a hard game, a hard opponent, I am tired, I imagine the players are more tired than me but we are in the draw tomorrow and we still have the dream to win the competition", an exhausted Mourinho said.

"The same way I know the players much better now, the players they should also know me much better now".

"His experience, his know-how of this knock-out phase - I think he's a player that can be useful tomorrow".

"I don't want to go in that direction", the manager replied.

Marcus Rashford scored the victor in extra time to move Man United past Anderlecht 3-2 on aggregate in the Europa League.

Winning the Europa League would guarantee a Champions League place, even if United finish outside the Premier League's top four.

He also called for campaigning generally to be suspended, although from midnight on Friday the law says it has to stop anyway. Francois Fillon, who is the conservative candidate, said he would cancel the campaign events he had been planning for Friday.

"I think it's time for Jones and Smalling to be courageous, to risk because for the team you have to do everything", Mourinho explained, as quoted by the Daily Mail. I cannot confirm now but the paparazzi that live in the Lowry Hotel, they can take the picture when we go to the hotel at six o'clock and see if Wayne is selected.

"But the news is fairly negative I think".

Mourinho, asked about the injury to Ibrahimovic, was non-committal, saying: 'I can not tell you what the injury is. I think it is just that.

On the injuries to Ibrahimovic and Rojo, Mourinho said he would prefer to wait until Friday when tests were completed. We had a lot of chances but we got the goal in the end.

"We have felt that kind of performance coming", said the versatile England worldwide, United's captain against Chelsea. "So, hopefully his answer in the training session is positive".

United boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Argentina keeper Sergio Romero will start ahead of David de Gea.

Manchester United have won all their home games in this season's Europa League and are confident of getting the job done against Anderlecht tonight at Old Trafford. The same way I know what the players like, I think the players also know what I like. One look at Mourinho's badge-beating as he left the pitch told you everything you needed to know about how he viewed the win over his former side.
