Mourinho just getting started at Man United

Man United are now fifth in the Premier League table - one point behind fourth-place Manchester City ahead of their meeting at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday night.

Jose Mourinho has insisted that he will rotate his squad once again ahead of the Manchester derby on Thursday night.

When asked if his approach was a calculated risk, Mourinho told Sky Sports on Tuesday: "I don't care".

Mourinho has turned his guns on a number of players in his first season at Old Trafford, with England left-back Luke Shaw and French forward Anthony Martial suffering recent blasts from the United manager.

"I'd be saying, "You're supposed to be the world's best manager".

"Instead, it seems Guardiola is just saying, 'I'll get it right eventually... as long as you give me a quarter of a billion quid.' And that's just not great management, it's the epitome of chequebook management".

"So I could never demand more from him". "I am very happy".

"We are one point behind them". The 25-year-old has made just 95 appearances for both Arsenal and Bournemouth over the last six seasons and is now sidelined with a broken leg he suffered against Tottenham a fortnight ago.

"It doesn't matter what happens in terms of titles we win or don't win". This is not about myself and Guardiola.

United head into Thursday's contest with considerable injury problems, including what the club have described as "serious" knee ligament damage sustained last week by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, their 28-goal top scorer.

"I always feel that the season is very important for me, for the players, for the club", Mourinho said.

Europa League glory would offer United a route back to the continent's top table, but they are also fighting desperately for a top-four finish having narrowly missed out to City last term.

Guardiola had arguably the more important victory, 2-1 at Old Trafford in the league on September 10 when his City team produced a dazzling first-half performance at Old Trafford in the midst of a 10-match winning start to the season.

However, Herrera's importance to how United operate means he will nearly certainly start in the middle of the pitch for the Old Trafford side, who are looking to overtake City in the Premier League table at the Etihad, should he be able to overcome his ankle injury.
