Patience will pay off, Mourinho tells Carrick and Herrera

Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini, Nemanja Matic, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia and David de Gea were all left out, yet United's line-up was still imposing, with Michael Carrick and Ander Herrera controlling proceedings in the middle.

Carrick has not even made the bench at times in the early weeks of the season, but looks set to finally get some minutes under his belt in the Carabao Cup third round tie against Burton on Wednesday.

"Sergio Romero played the Europa League final, which was the game of the season for us, and he is not playing now".

"If you're looking for an aesthetic, stylish football player, then you're not looking at Marouane Fellaini". Notably, there were transfer approaches from Turkey for Fellaini this year as well, but the player chose to stay.

Given how Mourinho seems to be getting it all right this season from his squad selections to results, the decision to offer Fellaini a new deal will surely be welcomed by the Manchester United fan base. That's the team, that's the squad.

Jose Mourinho has told Michael Carrick that his time will come despite the Manchester United captain's lack of playing time so far this season. However, the midfielder has gathered new-found admiration at the club over the previous year because of the way Mourinho values him. "We can not play with (only) 11 guys", the manager added. Ander Herrera was the player of the season and he is not starting matches.

"At this moment Matic and Fellaini are in the best form that I have ever seen them in". Then they improved, they had a little bit more initiative, they bring a few more bodies into attacking areas, and they create us a couple of problems.

"But then I think Ander was important, he gave us the stability that we were losing a little bit and then was only possible, in my view, 1-0 or 2-0, I never thought in the last 15 or 20 minutes it could be 1-1".
