Manchester United and England left-back Luke Shaw's last appearance came in the 3-1 loss to Watford last month, when his performance was criticised by boss Mourinho, in particular his contribution to one of Watford's goals.
"I had a little bit of problem with my groin after Watford but I'm feeling really good, I can't wait to get back playing," he said.
"I can take what the manager says. I can take it on board. You have to listen to your coach.
"At Watford maybe I pushed forward too much. You need to concentrate on the defending part first. I was disappointed with the result but not with what the manager said."
"He is one of the best midfielders in the world. We can all see the ability he has got in training. We've seen glimpses of his quality in matches - he is a good leader."
