In an explosive rant, Mourinho also said Pogba kills the mentality of his teammates when he plays games.

"There are six teams that should stay in the first six positions, season after season, and two of these teams are staying outside the top four".

United go into Wednesday's clash with the Gunners looking for a first league win since 3 November as they face a side sitting eight points above them in the table.

Dalot has now appeared for United in both the Champions League and the Premier League and will hope to put together a run of games at right-back, like Luke Shaw has mustered on the other side.

"Until past year I said that finishing second was a fantastic thing because of the qualities we had in comparison to the quality of the other teams that are fighting for the top four".

"If I used that word, it is not what I think at all. We need some players to perform better than they are and we need to perform better as a team than we are, but far from a miracle - not at all".

"I don't think Everton will be in front of Manchester United by the end of the season".

Mourinho is sweating on the fitness of Phil Jones but Smalling, Valencia and Bailly were all at the team's hotel last night to prepare for the fixture.

He added: "You believe a player scores in his own goal and then runs and celebrates "I scored in my own goal because I don't like the manager"?" "Why you speak about the weekend and not about the next one?"

"[It] doesn't matter the system we play, [it] has to do with the characteristics of the players", said Mourinho in his post-match press conference. It is another where I am quoted by someone else.

"If you asked me at 11 a.m".

Marcus Rashford was another who sustained a knock against Southampton, with Mourinho revealing after the game that the forward was asking to come off. I don't respond to that.

United spent £68 million on three new players, including £48m on Brazilian midfielder Fred who has only started three of the last 13 games.
