Manchester City v Manchester United - Premier League
Mourinho pulled a tactical masterclass in the Manchester Derby

Jose Mourinho is regarded as one of the toughest Premier League managers. After years of experience in England, he is known to be stubborn with his defensive style of play. It is extremely hard to impress the Portuguese manager as most players just have that one chance to shine for their side. Once players fail to earn his trust, they are certain to lose their spot in the starting line-up forever.

There are clearly plenty of players on the team not given the opportunity to live up to the standards they have set for themselves right from the beginning of the season. For instance, Matteo Darmian and Luke Shaw have both been missing for a large part of the season. They seem to be nowhere near Mourinho's outline of plans.

Even some of the young and talented players are missing out on regular action due to Mourinho's firm and stubborn belief in other senior ones. One particular loanee is keen to make his loan a certain move away from Old Trafford. This coming summer, there could be as many as five players leaving the club in a permanent move.

#5 Anthony Martial

Martial has not made an appearance since his club's FA Cup victory against Brighton

The French international's last Premier League appearance came in late February. Since then, Martial missed two games due to a thigh injury and spent another two on the bench. For a young talented player like him, Martial will definitely desire more game time in order to play a part in France's World Cup journey this coming summer.

After Alexis Sanchez's arrival from Arsenal, the Chilean has taken over the left wing, usurping Martial's role in the team. Although Sanchez has not been enjoying the best of time since the move, Jose Mourinho has shown preference to play him over the French youngster

Martial is currently linked with moves away from Old Trafford this summer, to possible destinations such as Juventus and even Paris Saint-Germain. He could well be preparing for a move this summer.
