Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho clarifies top four 'miracle' comment

Mourinho has said repeatedly he was expecting a hard campaign and revealed ahead of the meeting with the Gunners that he has been proved right because his was the only team in the top six that did not to improve over the summer. When you play Europa League you normally play with second choices and you can give a good rest to your (first team) players compared to those in the Champions League, where we have to play in the maximum of our potential.

"If I used that word, it is not what I think at all". I don't think we need a miracle at all.

"Before Palace, I said my target would be end of December in top four".

"It will be interesting if he stays and plays a major part for the club or whether he looks for a new challenge, but he's not hit the level of performance from his time at Arsenal". In the last decade, only Arsenal have recovered from a worse position to finish in the top four after starting the 2012-13 season with 21 points from 14 games.

"At the end of the season the top six will be done by the six teams we all know have that responsibility to finish in the top six". Unai Emery's side had lost their opening two Premier League matches of the season to Manchester City and Chelsea, but have not lost since then and are also into the knockout stages of the Europa League.

"Valencia is not playing, Shaw is a doubt, Darmian is back but I have to wait and maybe we decide like the last match a couple of hours before the game".

Referring to his ambitions for the rest of the season, Mourinho added: "Try to win as many points as possible and try nearly the miracle to end in fourth".

"It is one thing is to speak about an interview to Brazilian TV, which you can see".

"I don't speak about that".

'I don't want to update you, ' he said. It is another thing that someone told what I told.

Three different options, none of whom are Mourinho's big-money summer solution to a long-standing problem.
