Alexis Sanchez

Manchester, Jan 26 (UITV/IANS)- Manchester United head Jose Mourinho on Thursday said his latest recruit, Chilean star Alexis Sanchez will be in the squad for the FA Cup fourth-round clash with Yeovil Town on Friday.

"Sanchez will be in the squad," Mourinho said.

The Portuguese tactician also said his former player Henrikh Mkhitaryan will shine for Arsenal as he has adapted to the conditions in the English Premier League (EPL).

"I believe that Mkhi is going to be even better than he was with us," the 54-year-old said.

"Why? Because he has one and half years in England and one and a half years in the English Premier League (EPL). He has adapted.

"Arsenal with the way they play and they think -- I think it is a good move for everybody. That is why I am also happy for Mkhitaryan," Mourinho added.

Mourinho said he wants Manchester United to improve everytime and fight to win titles. The Portuguese also said that he has more attacking players option now.

"We want to improve all the time, be better and achieve big things. We are not going to stop until we do that. I'm very happy and have to say with pride the evolution of Lingard, Martial, (Scott) McTominay and these kind of young guys," Mourinho said.

"At the same time you need a combination with Matic, Alexis - people with more experience that have experience in where we want to be - fighting for titles.

"Now we have five attacking players of quality, Mata, Rashford, Lukaku, Martial, Alexis and it's fantastic for me and for the team, if the players one day are on the bench and they don't like it, I'm happy with that," Mourinho added.

Mourinho also clarified that Manchester United are not targeting Portuguese football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo but he is the kind of footballer who will be liked by every manager.

"I should be the last one to add some fuel to the fire. Madrid is on fire, the results are not good and it is a club where I worked three years," Mourinho said.

"I care about the club and I don't want to add fire, to put some water on the fire I would say Cristiano is the kind of player every manager wants, every club wants, but only one manager can have and only one club can have. Zidane and Real Madrid, that's my feeling," Mourinho added.
