And when asked why he dropped Lukaku and Pogba, Mourinho replied, “You know, [it’s] technical and tactical decisions.

“We’re going to play with Lingard, Rashford and Martial. We did that already before I think recently against Young Boys.

“We weren’t successful in goals we wanted to score but were happy with the situations we created.

“In the first half versus Young Boys we didn’t score but had big chances.

“[They’re] young, fast, creative players even if they’re not what you’d call ‘killer’ when [they have a] chance to score a goal.”
