“Honestly, I don’t think Mkhitaryan is fit for the final. I think him and Michael are both out,” said Mourinho.

“You can be injured leaving your house, you can be injured in the garden. You never know when and why.

“Obviously they are important players for us and not to have them both for the final is complicated but I think Marouane (Fellaini) and Bastian (Schweinsteiger) – two players who are normally not playing too much – is a good answer.

“I don’t say they will definitely miss out, I just say what I feel. It’s three days before the final. Even if it’s a minor injury I think three days is no time.”

Mhkitaryan scored the only goal of the game as United won 1 - 0 in the second leg of their round of 32 Europa League tie. United won the tie 4 - 0 on aggregate.

The Red Devils face Southampton in the League Cup final on Sunday.
