"I play some players that didn't play today, I play Romero, I play Daley Blind, I play Eric Bailly, I play Rashford, I play Martial, I play Mata."

MUTV later claimed that Martial had suffered an injury in training.
Michael Carrick, however, was present and ready to captain the team in his final appearance over 12 years at the club.
