Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is not expecting any major changes ahead of their next game against Brighton on Sunday
The Red Devils got their 2018/19 Premier League campaign off to a good start last Friday night after sealing a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford with goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.
But Mourinho was forced to make do without captain Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic for the club’s opening league game of the season.
And, while he expects Jesse Lingard to return after World Cup duty, the Portuguese coach is not expecting to see any other new faces for the trip to Brighton.
“I think we will have the same players [as against Leicester],” Mourinho told the club website.
“I think the injured players aren’t going to be back for Brighton. What we have is Paul [Pogba] with nine days’ training, Rashford with 11 days’ training, Fellaini with nine days’ training and, of course, they will be in a better condition.
“Normally, these boys that [against Leicester] were in a difficult situation will be ready to give a bit more [against Brighton] – more Lukaku, more Rashford, probably Lingard coming back, more Fellaini. I think normally we’re going to have more.”
