Manchester United's Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini (C) goes by Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho (R) as he leaves the pitch substituted to be replaced by Manchester United's Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera (L) after only being on the pitch for eight minutes during the English Premier League football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United at Wembley Stadium in London, on January 31, 2018.

On that note, Jose also talked about Marouane Fellaini who has run into another injury this week.

Defensive errors cost the Red Devils as Spurs took a 2-0 lead within 30 minutes, courtesy of Christian Eriksen's opener after 11 seconds and Phil Jones' comical own goal.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of the clash with Huddersfield Town, the 55-year-old was unable to confirm whether Fellaini would require surgery but was notably pessimistic about his return date. "Two, three, four or five, I can not say at the moment", Mourinho revealed.

'It's not the end of his season, not at all.

Truth be told, Fellaini's display has not been very good this season and he is going to miss considerable game-time following this knee injury.

However, Mourinho had more positive news on the latter pair, suggesting that they could return later this month.

The United boss was responding to whether Fellaini was taking a risk by running down his contract, when he said: "I told him sign the contract and shut up". "It's an injury and I feel sorry for him personally and I feel sorry for the team because he's an important player for us".

"We are not going so far as that but we need him. It is open for second, third, fourth but practically closed for the first", Mourinho said.

"Then we must try to start next season in a good way, like we did this season, but try to be consistent and try not to lose points like we did this season in some matches where we shouldn't", said the former Chelsea manager.
