Alexis Sanchez to leave Manchester United in January

Jose Mourinho admits Manchester United are inferior to Manchester City

Mourinho Speaks On What Manchester United Has To Do To Reach Juventus Level

"So we work, we work hard, we try to improve our players but quality is quality".

"Juventus is champions for seven years, I think seven years in a row, two Champions League finals in the last four or five years and not happy with what they have, they want more, they want more", Mourinho said.

Jesse Lingard and Scott McTominay may return from injury, but Mourinho's anger at the treatment of his players on global duty was clear after he had to cope with a depleted squad for the Champions League loss to Juventus.

Fellaini is also carrying a groin injury that he sustained while away on worldwide duty with Belgium while Dalot is recovering from a knock that he picked up while away with Portugal and both players will now miss the Everton game on Sunday.

"We try to solve problems step by step and if Jesse can be available and give us some help, McTominay is normally in condition and we have to wait some more for those other players".

"It's always good for me to play so I'm very happy at the moment". "We play against Newcastle and we go to the national team period in a good situation and then after two weeks we lost Dalot in Portugal, we lost Fellaini in Belgium".

So far this season Sanchez has mustered just one goal in eight appearances and is growing disillusioned with his situation at United. "But this season he had a good start, a good pre-season he started well against Leicester City, and then he was injured, then he came back and was injured again".

The Red Devils will be looking to return to winning ways against Everton at Old Trafford in their next Premier League fixture on Sunday afternoon.

"So now he's going back and doing the work to try to be 100 per cent [fit] and, in this moment, he's nearly there, because of the team's needs".

"Well against Juventus to give him a break, I don't think Carrick can play as a striker", Mourinho said, as quoted by the Independent.

"Can he help us in the next match [against Everton]?"
