Forwards struggle as Man United turn in another uninspired display

Forwards struggle as Man United turn in another uninspired display

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has acknowledged his trip to Belgium was meant to help rejuvenate out-of-form striker Romelu Lukaku.

Mourinho confirmed the barrage good news during his pre-match press conference, while also throwing light on a few players who are set to feature for Manchester United on Saturday.

Former Manchester United captain Rio Ferdinand has slammed Jose Mourinho's treatment of his squad and questioned his decision to publicly slate players. "You must play with brain, we must play also with heart, and I think (there was) not enough heart".

The stalemate means that United are now 14 points behind Man City at the top of the Premier League table before we have even got to December and the calls for Jose Mourinho to be sacked are once again beginning to grow. They are very unsafe on set pieces, on short counter-attacks.

Sinclair insists that the biggest learning point from the defeat is that Chelsea need to be able to switch to a plan B.

According to West London Sport, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri wants N'Golo Kante to start scoring more goals.




Victor Lindelof was one United player to earn praise from Mourinho, the Sweden star battling through the match despite carrying a knock from global duty. I have to believe so. And when we talk about Luke Shaw, about Martial, about Lingard, about Marcus Rashford, we're talking about boys with great potential but who still are lacking - a word I can't say but you like to say a lot - having that [courage].

Twelve Manchester United stars jetted off around the world last week for the worldwide break and despite some of them not getting minutes on the pitch for others, the break was a roaring success. "Roberto invited me to meet him, which I decided not to do, because I don't like to disturb people before matches", he said. "He's doing well. I hope we can do (a new contract)".

"The situation is that we have five central defenders", said Mourinho.

FW Anthony Martial, 5 - Should have done better with a header that went straight at Hennessey in the first half and, generally, was kept quiet for the first time in two months.

"I'm happy to extend my time with Chelsea".
