Why McTominay Is The Solution To Manchester United's Midfield Imbalance — Opinion

United defender Chris Smalling was booked for needlessly diving inside his own half and from the resulting Jonjo Shelvey free-kick, Dwight Gayle latched onto a header and played a backheel towards Ritchie.

"They had chances, and he could have been thinking that they would score, but the way that we were working, we were doing really well". Lukaku - joining the Red Devils from Everton where he scored 25 goals for the Blues in a team that finished 7th in the league.

"We train, we work, we organise", the coach said about the defending for the goal. They have to start preparing now.

The Frenchman cut a dejected figure on the bench upon being taken off as the Mourinho's men fell 16 points adrift of Manchester City, managed by his nemesis Pep Guardiola.

Granted, that might not have been the case since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, but the point is that little has changed in that respect since Mourinho arrived 18 months ago.

United play their first match with VAR when they travel to Huddersfield Town for their FA Cup fifth-round clash on Saturday and Mourinho stressed that the technology had to be embraced, although it needed to iron out some issues. "I don't see the benefit in trying to upset one of your star players".

The race to be the best of the rest below Manchester City took an interesting turn on Sunday, as Liverpool won at Southampton and Manchester United lost at Newcastle, who began the match in the relegation zone.

"You remember every play, every moment, and you try to change the outcome but obviously that's impossible. They fought like animals", he said.

"I saw it in my team after we went behind".

However, while those issues can be addressed on the training pitch, there seems to be a more fundamental - perhaps more intangible - problem: Opponents are not scared of United.

Former Liverpool FC captain Souness has been an outspoken critic of Pogba since his £89m move to Manchester United from Serie A giants Juventus in 2016.

Neville added on the challenges facing the man at the Old Trafford helm, who recently committed to a new contract through to 2020: "The job will only be measured by whether Jose Mourinho wins the Premier League". United looked like they were missing something and it was evidently Paul Pogba.

"We have 25 players and everyone is important. It's a boost for everyone".

"He did well for his first game".

Victory was a huge relief for Newcastle United's manager Rafa Benitez against a man with whom he has often clashed.

All odds from William Hill and correct at time of writing.

The qualities de Bruyne possesses and Pogba lacks are all important.

"We made a defensive mistake and when they are in front they had only one thing in mind and gave their lives to keep a clean sheet".
