'Lucky' Manchester United giving Mourinho white hair

Sanchez starts for United but Lukaku absent

United laboured past Bournemouth over the weekend in the Premier League, with Mourinho labelling his players' performance as bad in the first half.

But while he admitted that task remains a work in progress, he believes United are showing the powers of recovery required to overcome setbacks and turn games around. "We don't know, a muscle problem, and we have to wait a little bit". "So I think he was really good for us".

Manchester United remain second in their Champions League group behind Juventus, but are desperate to get something from their visit to Italy to make qualification for the last 16 less tricky.

Bournemouth went close to taking the lead at the beginning of the second half, but David Brooks' impudent flick from close range was well saved by De Gea, who managed to grasp the ball at the second attempt.

'In the last few years I think we have been known for shutting up shop and not conceding many goals so this season has been very unusual'.

United have kept just one clean sheet in 11 Premier League games this season.

Iran summons Danish ambassador over plot allegations
The United States pulled out of the accord in May and began reinstating sanctions, a move that has hit the Iranian economy hard. Iran has since carried out several operations in Iraq and Syria in retaliation.

United are now up to seventh place in the table and within reach of the Champions League places.

"I am trying to find a balance where we develop the team and the talented players we have in the second and third phase of attack without losing the balance". This is a club that is talked about more than any other and we as players need to stick together and ride out the tough times and stay together in the good and try to keep them flowing as much as we can. "That is a fantastic quality for a team".

"I think Herrera made a big difference to the team", Scholes said after the game on BT Sport. Mourinho's side were fortunate to be level at half-time but after the restart, they improved the longer the game went on and should have claimed a decisive second goal after Young struck the bar with a free-kick.

"Sometimes we decide that the best thing for the players is to not be on the pitch, to be protected and away from the initial pressure". I bring Herrera. But then Ashley Young and Luke Shaw start attacking more, Paul gets much more freedom, the team recover balls higher and then we become more offensive in the period after Ander.

Reading between the lines, Lukaku can be far from happy having his credentials questioned in public after being dropped to play against his former club, Everton, especially as the Toffees' fans don't exactly laud him for heading to United.
