United have a few issues with their manager and with different areas of their team but the bottom line is that they just can not seem to win a game - Wednesday's draw with Arsenal was their fourth league game in a row without a victory.

"I think Fred, when the team is defensively stronger and doesn't need in midfield people that is more anxious in giving balance to the team than being involved in creation and attacking dynamic, the day we are stronger defensively, I think the horizons for Fred change completely".

"You have also other players in other clubs that needed time".

"Jose Mourinho brings all his experience and knowledge of the game to us all, not just me", said the 19-year-old.

"We pressed the ball more, put difficulties to the opponent". There is no game in which you can relax.

With low expectations and pivotal games against West Ham, Newcastle, Wolves and Huddersfield to end December, Fulham will be viewing this game as a free hit.

"As a team we need to develop every single game".

'Fulham are in the same situation as us [needing points] but probably the way they are coming to play, or try to play, will not demand as much from them as us, ' said Mourinho.

"I sat here a few weeks ago speaking about December and no defeats - that's a reality - good fights, good spirit, but just one victory against Young Boys and three draws".

Manchester United will assess the fitness of Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, who are all nursing injuries. We need to improve defensively, but we need to have balance and not lose our attacking chances.

But he has revealed he won't speak about two long-term casualties: Victor Lindelof and Alexis Sanchez.

"(We are) still waiting for conclusions, still waiting for people like Martial, Smalling, Jones - people with these kind of doubts", Mourinho said.

"That's important when we have so many matches and problems with some players".

Dalot impressed on his first Premier League start in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal and is hopeful of keeping his place against Fulham on Saturday.
