Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he will face another “difficult selection” this weekend as Manchester United take on Fulham.

The Red Devils host the Cottagers at Old Trafford on Saturday looking to end a run of four Premier League matches without a victory.

Mourinho has been faced by a number of injury worries in recent weeks, especially in the defensive areas with Marcos Rojo making his first Premier League appearance of the season against Arsenal.

“It’s a difficult selection again,” Mourinho told reporters. Still waiting for conclusions, still waiting for people like Martial, Smalling, Jones – people with these kind of doubts.

“But there is a good spirit and people are putting themselves on the line like Chris did in the last match and Jones did against Southampton.

“That’s important when we have so many matches and problems with some players.”

When asked if he would have any players back from injury, Mourinho added: “I don’t know. Training session, 11 o’clock will give us some answers, Smalling, Jones, Martial, Bailly.

“Of course Lindelof and Alexis, we don’t even speak about them but we need answers and for sure we are going to play with players not in the maximum of their potential but players who will put themselves available for the team like Smalling did in the last match, like Jones did against Southampton, players in difficulty who go one step forward to try and help the team.”
