Blind, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has seen his career stagnate at Old Trafford this season and the Sun says that Blind could be "booted out of United next month, albeit for a small fee". "They had one more day's rest than us, they were fresher than us, and mentally fresher because a big match takes more from our players".

The 23-year-old has not played since United's defeat against Chelsea on 5 November.

Manchester United are believed to be interested in signing players in the January window and are believed to be keen to sign a full-back next month, but Mourinho believes the summer window is always the preferable window to do business in.

West Brom moved out of the relegation zone following a 0-0 draw at Liverpool on Wednesday.

"We wanted to win the game but, unfortunately, it wasn't to be. We might struggle to get seven, eight or nine wins we need, so we need to pick up points everywhere and that was a great point".
