Manchester United FC: All the times Jose Mourinho 'cried' about injuries

United sit top of their Champions League group following an impressive start to their European campaign.

They remain very much in title contention, just two points back on free-scoring Manchester City, and are making positive progress at home and overseas.

Despite performing well as a team, here is a more in-depth look at how they performed as individuals.

Although this desire to get the best out of his players may make him hard to work with, it also shows why Mourinho has been such a successful manager.

After drawing 0-0 against Liverpool in the Premier League, Manchester United returned to winning ways by beating Benfica in the Champions League last night.

But he joined Manchester United in the summer in a £40m deal and is now on a mission to turn Mourinho's men into champions again.

"Not that I read it a lot, but sometimes when I read the press, not only English but Portuguese, I feel that sometimes defending properly is seen as a crime but it is not".

"When I first came to Benfica, the manager Jorge Jesus told me I would be playing as a defensive midfielder", Matic, who has impressed since joining United from Chelsea during the close season, told the club's television channel (MUTV) on Tuesday.

United serious missed a defensive minded midfield player past year, but this problem has been solved as the Serbian has provided the team with much needed protection in front of the back four.

"I knew how good the goalkeeper was, I told the players that". It is to give confidence to the players that are available.

Rashford, who scored the victor against Benfica, suffered a knee injury and he should be replaced by Anthony Martial in the starting XI. Are the recent poor performances of the Belgian down to his own wrongdoing, or the lack of chances being created for him by his teammates?

United are just two points adrift of City in the Premier League table, but have conceded two fewer goals, while it's a similar story in Europe, with their defence only being breached once as CSKA Moscow netted a consolation goal earlier this month.
