We don't fear Manchester United anymore - Francis

We don't fear Manchester United anymore - Francis

Martial continued his fine goal scoring form but Alexis Sanchez failed to impress, having started in the centre forward position with Romelu Lukaku sidelined due to an injury revealed by Mourinho earlier today.

This "total split" over what to do next has left the club somewhat "paralysed", according to a United source, and is one of the main factors behind a lack of action in recent times regarding Mourinho.

"You know the reason why I ask the club and lawyers to appeal was because I was 100 percent sure that I was not guilty of these charges but you never know how it ends", he said.

The Daily Record reports that relations between the Portuguese and his superiors remain, particularly over transfers, while he's also been given the clear message that results need to improve. It was something in training.

Dreams of Europe can wait for a little while longer but - whisper it quietly - Bournemouth are just six points off the top of the EPL table.

Indeed, the former AS Monaco prodigy has now scored five goals in his last four Premier League matches and finally seems to have gained the trust of coach Jose Mourinho.

Second suspicious package addressed to CNN intercepted at post office
President Jeff Zucker said the package was similar in appearance to those mailed to the network last week in New York City. The FBI and Atlanta police were called to a post office some 1.2 miles from CNN headquarters around 9:30am.

We wery very lucky because we were very poor.

Mourinho criticised United's defending in the first half as a disaster. I look to the team we didn't press or do any of the week we did in the week. It's in midfield where the opposition carving us open and creating chances, therefore I'd give Nemanja Matic a rest for the more energetic Ander Herrera who can cover the pitch and intercept passes a lot quicker. "And that is a fantastic quality for the team".

Martial was the man to step up late in the first half, and it was Rashford who secured three points right at the death as the visitors snatched a 2-1 win. Eddie Howe, has always been one to stick to his principles and approach to the game even when the going gets tough - and in 2018/19, this steadfast belief in his ideas has reaped rewards. We had much more aggression, intensity, intention.

"The discussion at half-time was of course that we weren't winning, but deserved to be winning by more than one".

United were dominant in the second half and should have won the game long before Rashford's victor. However, they are unbeaten in three league games, including wins over Newcastle United and Everton.
