Martial has to start doing what I like, warns Mourinho

United, who are level 1-1 with Anderlecht on aggregate, will be without longer-term absentees for the second leg on Thursday night, but Mourinho has no fresh concerns following the win over his old club Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho's side have conceded just one Europa League goal at Old Trafford this season and have won all five matches, extending their unbeaten European home record to 16 matches.

The French worldwide has played for full 90 minutes in just three Premier League games this season, and Mourinho has now told Martial to find greater consistency if he wants to make most of his potential at United.

"I know we are together for nearly 10 months". Because he was always coming in the direction of what I want from a Manchester United player.

That's why Rashford even without scoring was always in.

"It is about getting to know each other better and better and better, and go in the direction of the things that we like".

"I think they have had three defeats in the entire season and in the last 22 matches in the game they are unbeaten". I am a team player, I want to give everything for the manager and I don't look back.

"We saw in the first leg what they can do and we know it is going to be very hard, and we know that pretty much everyone in our team is going to have to put in a ideal performance". If they progress, they will fancy their chances against the teams remaining in the Europa League.

There was nearly a swagger about United's approach and they twice came close to instantly doubling their advantage with Pogba seeing a firm header tipped over by Anderlecht keeper Martinez Ruben who moments later excelled again as he pushed a curling Jesse Lingard shot wide.

"His experience, his know-how of this knock-out phase, I think is a player who can be useful tomorrow".

The 31-year-old trained last week at the Aon Training Complex but did not travel to Belgium, nor was the forward involved in the squad that faced Chelsea. "We might need him to help us".

Manchester United hold the advantage against Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-finals after securing a 1-1 draw in Thursday's first leg in Brussels.

United are hoping to reach the Europa League final on 24 May at Stockholm's Friends Arena - where Ibrahimovic is having a statue erected in his honour.

"The reality is that Sergio is very stable and very experienced. But I always like to have my goalkeepers playing in different competitions, not complete separation". "Wayne is the only one that is possible, but I can not confirm now". He played in the FA Cup, he played well.
