Man Utd boss Mourinho: Mkhitaryan, Shaw not injured, but...

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has explained the absence of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Luke Shaw for victory over Leicester City.

Mkhitaryan and Shaw are recovering from respective thigh and groin problems.

“I wouldn't say injured but I would say not 100 per cent," said Mourinho.

"When they are not 100 per cent I always think this kind of difficult moment where you feel you have to win the match I prefer always to go with players who are 100 per cent ready physically and the mental point of view.

"Martial and Phil Jones are injured but all the others is that grey zone between fit and injured and the decision was to go with those who were ready for it."
