'We don't need a striker'- Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho believes Luke Shaw will remain a Manchester United player beyond the summer, but has stressed the door is open for the left-back to leave should he wish to do so.

Manchester United recently parted ways with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and manager Jose Mourinho has explained why they won't sign a replacement. "It's not because we are the French team that we will win every game".

City won 3-1 at Everton on Saturday, meaning they will clinch the title - their first since 2013-14 - by beating United at Etihad Stadium next weekend.

However, with England global Jesse Lingard in magnificent form and having a hand in both goals, United had settled this game inside the opening 20 minutes.

United have earned 68 points after 31 games, but still trail Pep Guardiola's side by a massive 16 points on the log.

The Frenchman picked up a hamstring injury in a UEFA Champions League tie against Basel last September and has not been able to replicate his early season form since returning. "Seven matches to go, we are going to fight to try and finish second". But even if that nightmare scenario plays out, Mourinho insists his team have still made progress.




"People will say the third, the fourth, the fifth, the sixth- they're better than us, but they're not better than us, because we have more points than them".

The United boss was happy with Pogba's performance, although he felt his standards dropped in the second half, along with the rest of the side.

"I think he played like the team, " the Red Devils manager said of Pogba.

"The team played very well in the first-half, so Alexis played well", said Mourinho.

The 25-year-old France global has had further spells on the sidelines this season due to minor injuries and poor form and has not started in United's last three games.
