Erik Lamela is still nursing a calf injury while Christian Eriksen has been used as an impact substitute in recent weeks so Lucas Moura occupied the right flank last time out.
However, Giovani Lo Celso is another option for Mourinho while Moussa Sissoko was deployed in an advanced position during the 3-2 win over Bournemouth.
The Frenchman operated in a deeper role against United but Mourinho has revealed he is reluctant to start Sissoko as part of a midfield duo.
