Jose Mourinho rests Marcus Rashford, recalls Wayne Rooney

Jose Mourinho rests Marcus Rashford, recalls Wayne Rooney

After playing two full hours against Anderlecht on Thursday, United's most important striker is given the afternoon off against Burnley. How times change. Wayne Rooney starts ahead of a 19-year-old, and it's frankly a disappointment. An understandable disappointment, of course, given that Marcus Rashford played 120 minutes in the Europa League on Thursday. But still. Tells you something about the pecking order at Manchester United these days. Anyway, Rooney starts and captains, with Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard for company up front. Behind them, Paul Pogba — who apparently never...

Manchester United star Jesse Lingard believes team-mate Marcus Rashford can stand up for himself now and backs him to carry on his scoring run

JESSE LINGARD reckons Marcus Rashford can stand up for himself now. The Manchester United winger may prank his best pal by pinching his phone like he did last week. But he insists Rashy can take it in his stride, just like he does on the pitch. The teenage star went six months without a Premier […]

Manchester United vs Anderlecht: Line-ups!

Zlatan and Mkhi are back in the starting XI. José Mourinho is taking no chances for Manchester United’s Europa League quarter-final second leg, and has named an attacking side to face Anderlecht. After being left out at the weekend, Zlatan Ibrahimović returns to spearhead the attack. Behind him is the also returning Henrikh Mkhitaryan, as well as the in-form Marcus Rashford and reasonably reliable Jesse Lingard. Here's how #MUFC will line up against Anderlecht in the #UEL this evening... pic.twitter.com/JPbADcqCFi— Manchester United (@ManUtd) April 20, 2017 Michael Carrick lines...

Gary Cahill defends himself over Graeme Souness and Twitter abuse after helping Jess Lingard up in build-up to Manchester United goal

GARY CAHILL defended himself against abuse from fans and Graeme Souness for his part in Manchester United’s opening goal in Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat on Sunday. The Blues defender tangled with Jesse Lingard during a failed United attack before the winger fell to the floor in the penalty box. When it looked like the danger was […]
Gary Cahill explains why he was more concerned with Jesse Lingard than defending

Gary Cahill explains why he was more concerned with Jesse Lingard than defending

One of the many things that did not go right for Chelsea on Sunday was the defending on either of Manchester United’s two goals. While the first one was started by a blatant uncalled handball on Ander Herrera, the second one was finished by the same player after N’Golo Kanté failed to clear the ball and instead turned it over 16 yards from the Chelsea goal. Definitely not a good place to do that. Meanwhile, behind the play, Gary Cahill was busy helping Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard to his feet. Except it turned out to be not behind the play at all, but rather right on the...

Manchester United 2-0 Chelsea: five talking points from Old Trafford | Jamie Jackson

Mourinho puts one over on Conte, Rashford and Lingard offer United vision of post-Ibrahimovic era and Hazard’s lack of hunger whets Spurs’ appetiteAt times José Mourinho has been cast as a fading force. Not after this. By the end Antonio Conte stood in rain in the technical area looking clueless. Manchester United’s victory derived from Mourinho’s tactical masterclass with the attacking axis of Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford, and Ander Herrera’s man‑marking of Eden Hazard. It is the ideal boost before the Europa League quarter-final second leg against Anderlecht on Thursday,...

Anderlecht 1 - 1 Manchester United: Three things we learned

Mourinho’s right. Mourinho’s wrong. Martial’s form is a concern. Yet again, Manchester United drew a game that they should have won. Yet again, a disappointing result followed subpar finishing in front of goal. Here are three things we learned from the 1-1 draw at Anderlecht. Anthony Martial’s form is cause for concern Photo by Clive Brunskill/ Anthony Martial had arguably his worst appearance in a United shirt yesterday. Brought on to replace Jesse Lingard with half an hour to go, Martial was meant to provide some cutting edge to an attack that had so far...

Manchester United hold advantage after earning draw at Anderlecht

Manchester United should still be confident of reaching the semi-finals of Uefa’s second tier club competition, despite Leander Dendoncker’s late strike that drew the opening leg. Until then Anderlecht had barely managed an attempt and United will rue Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were not ruthless enough, though the latter did score United’s goal.Yet given Jose Mourinho’s vast European experience and Anderlecht’s undoubted inferiority to United, the Portuguese’s tam should still progress when next week’s return leg is played.
