Lukaku double relieves pressure on Mourinho

Lukaku double relieves pressure on Mourinho

The Portuguese tactician has been criticised after United's poor start to the Premier League season, although a 2-0 win at Burnley on Sunday eased the pressure.

By that stage, United was comfortably in front thanks to two goals from Romelu Lukaku and could even afford the luxury of a missed Paul Pogba penalty, won by Rashford following a foul by Ben Mee.

"I wouldn't want to sit here and say Gareth wants him to (leave United)".

"I think that Rashford, especially when he burst onto the scene, we saw flashes of a striker that can go into the space and he can link up, and he can finish, " Wright said on BBC Radio 5 Live.

"Two young players that need to get on the field in order to improve and to show us consistently the quality they have, particularly Rashford".

In their match against Burnley, a group of Manchester United supporters flew an airplane banner over Turf Moor pinning the woes on Woodward, containing the message "Ed Woodward A Specialist in Failure".

Mourinho will be aiming for his Manchester United side to establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the title this season.

It means the 21-year-old will miss three games after the global break and comes at a time when he is struggling to break into United's line-up.

Trump Lobbying GOP Senators to Turn Against Sessions
This is only the latest in a series of insults Trump has hurled at Sessions in the last 10 days, while contemplating firing him. In fact, Politico noted, some Republican senators have already expressed a willingness to turn against Sessions.

"I don't know, I didn't watch", Mourinho said.

Mourinho made a number of changes to the starting XI for last weekend's clash as Victor Lindelof returned to the team at the expense of Phil Jones while Alexis Sanchez and Marouane Fellaini also started at Turf Moor.

Should the movement and creativity displayed in this game continue after the worldwide break, there are few defences in the Premier League that could cope with such swift interchanging and skill.

Former Manchester City goalkeeper Hart, who saved a penalty from Paul Pogba during the loss to United, said: 'The break comes at a good time for us.

The Uruguay worldwide believes that Pogba could be swayed into leaving the Premier League in the near future as a way of joining a more competitive team both domestically and in Europe.

Clearly unhappy, Rashford squared up to Bardsley and pushed his head towards the Burnley player's.

"(Referee Jonathan) Moss had a good game, a good performance, really. United's best course of action might actually be to sack both Mourinho and Woodward but as long as United's stock keeps climbing and they keep making money, the Glazer's are keeping Woodward.
