Manchester United set to turn down any approach for Marcus Rashford

Poll Man City victims of poor decisions against Liverpool and United

Poll Man City victims of poor decisions against Liverpool and United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has expressed his shock over West Brom Albion's struggle this season which has placed them on the verge of being relegated from the Premier League. Football can not be whittled down to catchy headlines; sacrificing genuine insight in favour of shock value deprives us of being able to have a meaningful connection with the sport online.

And Mourinho today hit back at reporters who asked about his plans to sign a striker, claiming he can not buy any more players while he is struggling to include first-team stars.

And on whether he will be in the market for another striker, Mourinho said: "If I have more competitions for him (Romelu Lukaku) I have more competition for the other ones you are saying are not happy because they are not playing". You always go to that one.

The Manchester United forward's opportunities to play from the start have been limited since Alexis Sanchez's arrival from Arsenal in the January window and there is speculation over his future at the club. The answer is, if you want what I call dry answers, we have dry answers.

I decide that way [to use Rashford from the bench]. Only 11 can start.

"So how can I?"

Having discovered that City players had booked tables in top Manchester restaurants for after the game to toast their Premier League success, United's stars couldn't resist a jibe or two. After three important points last weekend we need to try to do this three and be closer to the end of the season and to the second position which is, in this moment, in our ambition. A lot of people have that dream, so you're not only doing it for you; you're doing it for a lot of people that you might not even know, but there are a lot of people who had the dream of playing for their local team when they were young.

He told the club's monthly magazine: "I think it does".
