Ferguson returns to Manchester United after brain surgery

Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo will have to wait for their returns

"I don't speak with him for quite a long time to be honest, but when we speak we don't speak about my job or his job", Mourinho told reporters.

Clear-cut chances were hard to come by for United thereafter, and Mourinho was angered by the displays from the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez.

Tottenham earned plaudits for their performance at Old Trafford but have lost their last three while Manchester City were shocked by Lyon in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The manager was disappointed not to recruit a senior player in the position during the summer window as he believed this was required to bolster his rearguard.

"A fair result. Wolves, by the way, they faced the game, I think they deserve it".

United grew in confidence after scoring and it required an acrobatic diving save by Rui Patricio deep in first half injury-time to deny Fred a second goal, this from a left-foot free-kick.

Rightly or wrongly, the best-paid players at football clubs tend to start whether they are playing well or not, but as in his two previous games, Sanchez was substituted.

"I can't explain the difference of attitude because I never have a difference of attitude", he added.

The important thing is when he comes back on the pitch he is completely fit and can finish the rest of the season". Guardiola said: "I speak with the doctors sometimes and he's telling me he's going so well, going good.

"Come on, this is something you learn when you are a kid in the academy, you don't need experiences at the highest level to learn that". He did say that it could be a mental situation and said that now they have to reflect on the issue and play future games with more intensity as there was only one team to play the game of their lives, the other to relax.

But Sweden global Lindelof admitted that it was a clinical touch in the final third of the pitch that cost the team this time.

Dalot completed both of his take-on attempts and made six clearances in 90 minutes on the pitch, helping to keep a clean sheet in Switzerland.

'Unless you are against weak opponents, playing at 30 per cent of your potential is not enough.

Mourinho introduced Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Andreas Pereira from the bench in the final half-an-hour and all looked sharp, but the manager was in no mood to praise them.

Mourinho refused to single out the 29-year-old but, in answer to a question specifically about Sanchez, challenged his entire squad to get better.

"I think they got good young players and got also good experienced, stable players".
