London: As Manchester United continue to battle on four fronts, wracking up too many air miles is proving a concern to manager Jose Mourinho. Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored the only goal of the game away to Saint Etienne on Wednesday after just 16 minutes.

Mourinho's biggest concern is over how far his team will have to travel, as they battle in three cup competitions.

"I'm used to difficult draws, sometimes I think some balls are cold and some balls are hot," said Mourinho, cryptically. "If I could choose, I would choose not to travel a lot in Europa League as we have Chelsea in the FA Cup in between the two matches," Mourinho added.
