Mourinho alluded to a lack of depth in his squad and said Argentina winger Giovani Lo Celso, who set up Ryan Sessegnon's goal against Bayern but was replaced after half-time, is behind Dele Alli and Son Heung-min in his thinking.
"No, I'm not going to give (Kane) a rest". There are matches and matches. We need players and I don't think there'll be many doors open for players to get out on loan.
Prior to his move to China he spent five and a half years at Manchester United where he won four trophies, including the League Cup and Europa League during Mourinho's first season in charge in 2016-17.
Giovani Lo Celso can also expect to feature over the Christmas period, despite Mourinho admitting the Deadline Day signing from Real Betis is not now at the same level as some of his team-mates.
Les Sports reported that Mourinho was looking to bring the Belgian to North London in the January transfer window as his first signing.
"I couldn't hide from you that we have a few players one step ahead because of performance". So you want to be objective and ask if he starts Sunday?
Marouane Fellaini has responded to rumours linking him with a move to Tottenham Hotspur by refusing to rule out a move to the north London club and confirming he is contact with Jose Mourinho - and Spurs fans have reacted on Twitter.

Spurs have confirmed that left-back Ben Davies has travelled to Qatar for treatment on his ankle injury.
