Manchester United deservedly lost at the AMEX Stadium on Friday after making six changes to the side which beat Arsenal.
While the absence of Romelu Lukaku [foot] was known in advance, the omission of Alexis Sanchez and Antonio Valencia from the matchday squad came as a surprise. There was no mention of the latter during either the pre or post-match media briefings, but Mourinho did confirm prior to kick-off that Sanchez was not available due to an unspecified problem: "Of course, Alexis and Lukaku have injuries, so they weren’t an option." Although the precise nature of his setback is still unknown, the United boss remains cautiously optimistic that the pair will be back for the FA Cup tie against Chelsea on May 19: "I hope they can play in the final." United were hugely disappointing on the south coast and had it not been for a fine first-half display from David de Gea, the 1-0 score line could’ve been a lot worse. "We are probably not as good as people think we are individually," mused Mourinho at full-time. May 5 - 7:20 AM
