'I think everyone has to agree that he is a fantastic player.
United have no fresh injury concerns, meaning that the long-term casualties of striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic (knee) and defender Eric Bailly (ankle) are the only absentees.
Mourinho insists, however, that the Swede has not expressed any desire to leave United to him.
"I think he is probably going to get that kind of reception everywhere", said Mourinho. For the first time in our history, United will play a Premier League game at Wembley Stadium - which is Tottenham's temporary home while a new ground is built at White Hart Lane. I read from somewhere or saw on some TV channel.
Mourinho even admitted this week that the club would not stand in the Swede's way if he decided he wanted to rejuvenate his career away from Old Trafford.
"In midfield Michael Carrick will not be No. 16 next season, so we lose a player".
Mourinho also insisted midfielder Marouane Fellaini wants to stay at the club, despite the Belgium global having yet to agree a new contract at Old Trafford.More news: Strava inadvertently unveils location of secret military bases
"I don't want to forget to wish the best of luck once again to Henrikh Mkhitaryan", Mata said, describing his ex-teammate as a "footballer with great talent and a friend that deserves all the good things that happen to him".
"We have a good group of attacking players you could see today we played with three of them, [Jesse] Lingard was on the bench, [Romelu] Lukaku was on the bench, Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] at home, [Anthony] Martial at home".
He went on to note the way Sanchez leads from the front, saying, "He's always ready to be the first defender for the team, and that's big for us".
On the other hand, Tottenham do not have anyone ruled out but several players are doubtful.
The 55-year-old said: "The club wants he same as I want, it's as simple as that". They reached the Champions League with David O'Leary's "young boys" and were relegated to the Championship 14 years ago.
We don't see too many goals in this game, and we have picked under 2.5 goals as our prediction in this game.
Mourinho has also expressed hope that Marouane Fellaini could sign a new contract. It is not easy to not concede goals because of the high quality of football in this country but scoring goals and winning matches is very important because we need points. He's a great professional who is giving everything he can to help the team and there is a desire from myself, the board and the player to stay together, that's our objective.
