Jose Mourinho threatens to drop Manchester United players who show 'no heart'

"If anyone doubts anything about Manchester United and commitment and desire, to see Lindelof, who had obviously injured himself, actually keeping pace with Zaha and [Jordan] Ayew, that would tell you more", Hodgson told reporters.

Speaking on Monday evening, Mourinho said: 'He will be out for quite a while. It was a game we really need to win.

United would have to smash the world transfer record paid for a defender - the £75m Liverpool splashed out on Virgil van Dijk in January of this year - as they look to rebuild their faltering team.

Mourinho is targeting a place in the top four and a spot in the round of 16 of the Champions League before the end of December but he admits he is facing some hard decisions ahead of the meeting with the Swiss champions.

"When you see incredible things that the players did that demands that spirit, ambition and pride you believe they have it", Mourinho said. I totally refuse to say that.

"I think we played a game like one more game and I don't think the game is one more game. If you feel pressure, stay at home. and I don't mean stadium home, I mean home home!"

"At least we got something and on another day, if fate had been kinder and we had been a bit more clinical, we could have won it".

"Information is things much better than last time". "And if they aren't, we'll walk". "I want my players to be proactive not reactive", said Mourinho. I don't feel pressure to play at home.

Let us know in the comments. I want the team to start on the front foot, not to be waiting. I want my players to be strong.

Saturday's uninspiring goalless draw at home to Crystal Palace was only the third in 13 of Manchester United's Premier League matches to feature fewer than three goals as the Red Devils recorded their fourth clean sheet in 18 outings across all competitions.

Angry United fans booed the players at full-time and Mourinho accused his team of lacking heart.

Sometimes the midfield would move the ball too slowly while at others, forced forward passes simply handed the ball back.

"You need a thick skin, of course, playing for the manager".

Meanwhile Mourinho said Sweden worldwide Victor Lindelof will miss Tuesday's match and possibly much of the busy upcoming Christmas period with a muscle injury.

"Victor [has] a proper injury that will keep him out for a while", said Mourinho.

"We need, if possible, every player to be available for that hard (Christmas) period until the Newcastle match on January 2".
