Lukaku absent from Manchester United squad

08 Novembre 2018

United were second best for much of the contest, Bournemouth taking a deserved early lead thanks to Callum Wilson's 50th goal for the club before the in-form Anthony Martial hit back for Mourinho's men.

Mourinho acknowledged United could have been three or four goals behind by half-time at Dean Court on Saturday.

The Manchester United boss is now left with just four first-team players on the sidelines.

"The second half was exactly the opposite to the first", Mourinho said.

Young and Sanchez combined well along the right flank to set up Antony Martial who found the net in the 35th minute scoring 5 goals in the 6 Premier League appearances. To be 1-1, when perhaps we should have been five or six down. "So I think he was really good for us".

"[He] was the one that changed the game by giving the team, the balance, the intensity, the high pressure, the organisation that the team didn't have until then I think he was fundamental for us".

"And with the players we have, we can react".

Burley says that is a good trait for a team to have but is still yet to be convinced by Jose Mourinho's side.

The expectation for the game, especially for Chelsea fans will be nothing short of a win but they will be more delighted to have Belgium worldwide Eden Hazard back to the team either as a starter or coming in from the bench.

Smalling said that he and his teammates were much improved after the interval, and that gives them the belief that can get something at the Allianz Stadium. I love the song 'Attack! I love the song "Attack, attack, attack" but you need to know that when you lose the ball you have to have stability. "I really can't understand the kind of mentality that brings me more white hair". The Spaniard made some exceptional saves that well and truly kept us in the game.

Mourinho highlighted the contribution of his second half substitute Ander Herrera as the key to United's revival. We just need that consistency for the whole game. "We have to speak about it in the dressing room". "And that affects other players in the team, like [Paul] Pogba and [Jesse] Lingard, who want to play off people".

Given that Mourinho prefers a safety-first approach, this blunt response might cause some friction between the players and the manager.
