  • Inter Milan star Ivan Perisic in Champions League action

"Relief", said Mourinho of his celebration.

The World Cup victor was substituted with more than 20 minutes left to play against the Eagles and was dropped to the bench in Tuesday's Champions League win over Young Boys. Once again, they were lacklustre and uninspiring, but Fellaini saved the day, and he will continue to save the day for as long as Jose Mourinho remains in charge.

Martial's form won him the Red Devils Player of the Month in October and has made him the clubs top goal scorer so far this season.

United fans cheered and there were chants of "We'll never die", but it was no cathartic release, even though their team are assured of reaching the last 16 of European football's premier tournament.

But United have triggered the extension clause to keep De Gea at Old Trafford for at least another season and remain in talks with him over a long-term contract.

Marouane Fellaini's 90th-minute victor sealed all three points for United but Jose Mourinho only wanted to talk about De Gea in his post-match press conference.

"He is the best goalkeeper in the world".

"If you feel pressure, stay at home - and when I say home, I don't say stadium home, I say home home and watch on TV", Mourinho said.

'I know his agent is happy to do what the player wants and I also know that the board wants him to stay and they are working on that.

Mourinho had threatened to make changes to the team that drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace and followed through, with Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku benched and Alexis Sanchez left out of the squad. As the best player at the club and the best goalkeeper in the world, that is a fair, if hefty, sum of money to be handing over.

Marcus Rashford was given his chance to start as centre-forward, but Mourinho was less than impressed with the 21-year-old just five minutes in when he dinked his finish over the bar with just goalkeeper David von Ballmoos to beat.

After starting his ninth straight game on Tuesday the 22-year-old has revealed starting games week-in-week out has helped improve his all-round play. Without David de Gea's save, no winning goal.
