Grueling season taking its toll on injury-hit Man United

City dominated the game, with Aguero volleying against the post in the ninth minute and fit-again substitute Gabriel Jesus seeing a stoppage-time header ruled out for offside.

Mourinho has a reputation for creating a siege mentality at the clubs he manages, and he has used the injury crisis - which saw top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic and key defender Marcos Rojo suffer serious knee injuries last week - to create a spirit of resistance amongst his current squad.

Asked whether it was a mistake to let Schneiderlin leave mid-season, Mourinho said it was hard to keep players who wanted a move.

"We've got some tough games to play and we're in a better position now than we were at the start of the night".

Zabaleta said: 'It was a bit insane at the end, that reaction from Fellaini.

United will be without suspended midfielder Marouane Fellaini, following his sending off at the Etihad, while Paul Pogba (muscle) and Juan Mata (groin) are both still missing.

It means two potential routes remain open to qualify for next season's Champions League.

"The group was a nice group [when I arrived at United]", Mourinho was quoted as saying by his club's official site. I have to speak with them and see how they are and how they feel.

The Belgium global is set for a three-match suspension, while Mourinho confirmed Paul Pogba would not return from a hamstring injury until next week's Europa League semi-final first leg at Celta Vigo. Its squad is also ravaged by injury, a situation that won't be helped by Fellaini's upcoming three-game suspension.

"Next year we are going to expect more - I hope United are going to attack a little bit more".

It worked to an extent, although it wasn't pretty.

"We don't have (any other players there)". I was used to positive feedback and comments in the media but coming to United everything changed, there was negativity. "They were wonderful, the way they fight".

City might be challenging for the title — and not just a place in the top four — had Kompany stayed injury-free this season.

Shortly before half-time, Rashford's free-kick from the left found Herrera unmarked at the back post, but the Spaniard headed wide. In September, United went toe to toe with City's attack at Old Trafford and Kevin De Bruyne tore them apart.

"I spoke with Martin who said in his opinion it was a red card".

United won the League Cup in February after defeating Southampton 3-2 and they're now favourites to win the Europa League as they face Celta Vigo in the semi-final in a week's time.
