Mourinho went onto praise the evolution of players like Martial before underlining the important of his front five - consisting of the France worldwide, Rashford, Mata, Lukaku and Sanchez.

"I think he'll be very important for us because we want to have the best players possible", Mourinho told reporters. "If the player one day are on the bench and don't like it, I am happy with that". "I am not happy with Mourinho's decision not to play him, but it is his club, his team, he knows what he wants".

'United and Arsenal made a fantastic deal, I lost a fantastic player, Mr Wenger lost a fantastic player, Alexis changed from a fantastic club to a giant club and Mkhi changed for a fantastic club, so was a great deal for everybody.

'Could he perform better with us? Maybe. Could he also have given more to try to adapt to us? Could I take more from his talent?
