Mourinho: No excuses, we need points

Cape Town - Jose Mourinho says he needs all of his players to display the kind of mentality the likes of Ander Herrera and Marcus Rashford have in recent games.

Manchester United have struggled for form and results with the manager chopping and changing his side in search of a winning combination.

After fighting to a 2-2 draw with Arsenal last time out and ahead of taking on lowly Fulham, Mourinho is hopeful all of his players can find a unified drive to win.

"There are special players with special characteristics. Just to give you a couple of examples - [Ander] Herrera, [Marcus] Rashford - they are the kind of players that even if their game was not phenomenal, that intensity, that desire, that passion and that sacrifice is always present.

"But I prefer to say that the team as a team had that mentality.

"We have to try to transport that to this game. I know that it is only two days. I know that it is not easy.

"But no excuses. I sat here a few weeks ago speaking about the December month and no defeats - that is a reality - good fights and good spirit but just one victory against Young Boys and three draws.

"We need points."
