Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku celebrates scoring their second goal with Chris Smalling during the English Premier League soccer match between Bournemouth and Manchester United, at the Vitality Stadium, in Bournemouth, England, Wednesday April 18, 2018.
"We have a hard group, starting tomorrow with a hard team". "We are in Switzerland, the home of one of the best ever tennis players, and I'm pretty sure the big man sometimes is not happy to play on such a surface but he has to play and has to win", he said.
A stunning strike is usually a good enough reason for wild celebrations, but Smalling's exquisite effort in the 37th minute from a set-piece made it all the more sweeter for the United manager, Manchester Evening News reported.
Mourinho has always judged himself as a trophy victor and after an unsuccessful season last campaign, it is imperative that United win a trophy this year if he is to keep his job.
"At this moment, I am in the dark".

Aymeric Laporte nearly broke the deadlock for Pep Guardiola's charges in the 17th minute with a header at the back post, but unfortunately his effort came off the crossbar.
"But Marouane is giving us more than that - he's giving us that but he's also giving us quality and simplicity".
In fairness to Watford, their endeavour and approach in trying to play positive football did not let up even if the barrier was a hard one to overcome.
"Credit to Watford", said Lukaku.
"I haven't had any discussions [with Southgate] but I am lucky I play for a top club and we have got lots of games and that's where all my focus is going to be now because Man United is my sole focus right now", he said.
The first half an hour was even as the two sides tested each other out -- United probed but the home side looked risky on the break, confidence coursing through the players on the back of four straight wins.
The Portuguese manager said he had picked Fellaini to beef up the defence for the past couple of games after costly defensive errors against Brighton and Tottenham.
"I have a direct relation with the players and he never told me he wants to leave".
