Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that his team missed Marouane Fellaini during Tuesday’s 1-0 defeat to Juventus in the Champions League.

Paulo Dybala scored the only goal of the match as the Italian champions triumphed at Old Trafford.

Fellaini was one of six United players to be ruled out of the tie, with Alexis Sanchez, Diogo Dalot, Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay and Phil Jones also unavailable.

Fellaini has been a favourite of Mourinho since the Portuguese arrived at Old Trafford, and the United manager has claimed that his team missed the different option that the Belgium international provides.

“No Fellaini to change the direction of the game, like we do so many times,” Mourinho told reporters.

Mourinho did not make a single substitution during the European tie, with the likes of Andreas Pereira, Fred, Ander Herrera and Tahith Chong not used at Old Trafford.
