Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho wants to make point with January deal for Ryan Sessegnon

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was criticised when he failed to land a central defender in the summer transfer window.

It has led to suggestions of a fractured relationship with manager Jose Mourinho, who wanted either Harry Maguire or Toby Alderweireld.

The United boss tried those rumours during his pre-match press conference, which he turned up to 30 minutes early and answered questions for four minutes and 19 seconds.

“I don’t know 10 per cent of what is written,” said Mourinho, before assuring there is “no problem” between himself and Woodward.
