Here are the five major things Jose Mourinho said in his pre match briefing before the match against Aston Villa.
On the Injury Situation at Hand
‘It’s important, it gives me more options having almost everyone available,’ said the Portuguese. ‘This is what every club and manager wants but sometimes it’s not possible, you have difficult moments, difficult periods.
‘We don’t have a big squad, just 21, and from that 21 four of those are still kids who can play with the Under 21s.
‘Our squad is quite small so it’s important we don’t have many injuries, after seven competitive matches to have only one is good.’
