Man United hit by fresh injury concern

The Red Devils boss confirmed a huge double injury blow with the news that Chris Smalling and Phil Jones could miss the rest of the season after suffering "long term" injuries on global duty.

Bastian Schweinsteiger completed his move to MLS club Chicago fire this week and with Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimovic both suspended, United are looking a little short in midfield. Being a Manchester United player, I don't know how many people have that possibility but I am a Man United player, people wanted me here, I chose the club, I chose the best English club, that's the way it works.

Mourinho had 13 of his players on global duty, while West Brom had just one.

Despite the lengthy absentee list, there was still no place for Wayne Rooney, who was on the bench, with Marcus Rashford preferred up top.

Jose Mourinho remains hopeful that Manchester United can complete their transfer business early in the summer transfer window as the Red Devils manager looks to seal the deals for "difficult targets".

Manchester United's injury problems have worsened, with midfielder Juan Mata joining defenders Chris Smalling and Phil Jones on the sidelines.

The driver of the other vehicle was not injured either, but the accident draws attention to the tightrope Uber has been walking. Uber said it is investigating the incident, adding that there were no passengers in the back seat of the self-driving vehicle .

Mourinho says he is not interested in individuals with such concerns.

"[Schweinsteiger] is in the category of players that I feel sorry for something I did to him", Mourinho told a pre-match news conference. "If you remember we had many players in a doubtful situation". You know that we have also Pogba injured.

United have also lost two of their last three home games against West Brom, although they did record a 2-0 victory when the two teams met at The Hawthorns earlier in the season.

"Chelsea, before they are on holidays and after they are on holidays".

With a hectic April ahead, United will hope to kick off a crucial month with an important win in their chase for Champions League qualification. If we lose matches now, that match is not important; then the important matches are only Anderlecht.
