Jose Mourinho may recall Henrikh Mkhitaryan in League Cup tie

Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho he will consider recalling Henrikh Mkhitaryan to the team playing in the Carabao Cup quarter-final at Bristol City on Wednesday.

While the Armenian is yet to make an appearance this month and has played only once since United’s defeat at Chelsea on 5 November, Mourinho intends to rotate his squad as much as he can before the festive glut of fixtures.

“Henrikh has a chance — I intend to make a few changes for the match but not too many,” Mourinho said.

“Bristol City are one of the best teams in the Championship, and the Championship today is not what it was five or six years ago. Today the Championship is full of high-quality players, and you have to treat all its teams with respect.”

Aside from including Mkhitaryan, Ander Herrera could step down for the Bristol City game to make way for Paul Pogba, back after suspension. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, an unused substitute at West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, could also feature in Mourinho’s cup side.

Since the defeat at Chelsea United have only lost one Premier League game and are second in the Premier League. The other game was Manchester derby against League leaders City, which, as the game against Bristol at least gives Mourinho a break from being asked about whether he has given up hope of catching Pep Guardiola’s team in the league.

“There is nothing I can do about that situation except keep going,” he added. “That is what we intend to do.”

“People are saying the title race is over but I don’t think this is the time to go on holiday. We don’t want to go on holiday. We want to carry on winning as many of our matches as possible.”
