According to the Daily Telegraph, the Portuguese tactician is ready to drop Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata and Ander Herrera after their dismal display against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
In the build-up to United's game against Bournemouth on Wednesday night, Mourinho told members of the media that he will give players who did not feature against West Brom an opportunity to stake a claim for a starting position against Spurs in the semi-finals of the cup competition on Saturday.
"Rotating is not the right word – if I play a player against Bournemouth and the player is phenomenal, he plays the semi-final," Mourinho said, as quoted by the Daily Telegraph.
"So it is not rotating, because rotating looks like a player that plays against Bournemouth is to give a rest to somebody that is going to play against Spurs in the semi-final.
"So the word is not rotation – it is an opportunity for people, for some people to play and to try to get a place in the team for Spurs, and some of the guys who played (against West Brom) don't have a place in that team (against Spurs). They don't have a place in that team."
