Mourinho baffled by Man United's slow starts

Mourinho baffled by Man United's slow starts

But after Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time victor, which gave United a 2-1 victory, Jose Mourinho's team now head into a heavyweight week in the Champions League and Premier League on the back of two straight wins.

Herrera has made 114 appearances for United in the Premier League but it appears as though the central-midfielder doesn't have a long-term future at the club after falling down the pecking order.

"You know, the way I like to play is with three attacking players where there is not a clear definition of the winger as a winger", Mourinho said.

It is really tough to add anything other than that. The Red Devils are already 9 points behind with early pacesetter Manchester City with their title dreams all but over.

Fans have called for Lukaku to be dropped and finally got their wish by Rashford couldn't do enough to convince Jose Mourinho to not drop him for the clash against Bournemouth.

The Premier League match between Bournemouth and Manchester United will be broadcast on NBCSN.

Wilson was denied by David De Gea and Junior Stanislas's shot deflected wide before United finally cracked after failing to deal with the resulting corner. Jose Mourinho again explained things precisely.

But their slow starts in matches are a mystery and it reveals a baffling shortcoming in the team's collective psyche that such gifted individuals can only rouse themselves when facing a crisis.

"I think when you look at Juventus, they just ran the midfield at Old Trafford and we couldn't get anywhere near them".

It's safe to say that Callum Wilson has been one of the best performing English strikers in the Premier League this season. I feel like people watching this game will not believe how hard we trained this week. Gave the ball away too much and did himself no favours with his play-acting in the first half.

In the end, Nathan Ake was unable to stop Paul Pogba assist Rashford for the winning goal, but nevertheless, it was a superb performance from the Dutch defender.

Losing the Spaniard on a free would be a huge error from the United, and more importantly, replacing the former Atletico Madrid man would be almost impossible. Even Netherlands should pay attention, as he could become one of their starting centre-backs, too.
