EPL: Mourinho reveals why he dropped Fred for Fellaini against Burnley

EPL: Mourinho reveals why he dropped Fred for Fellaini against Burnley

Paul Pogba had the opportunity to put the match out of sight but had his penalty saved by Joe Hart and Marcus Rashford's red card left a sour taste in the mouth. "Like I said, the next game is more important than this one".

"They were very good in the early stages of the game, had us on the back foot very early, and it's one of those.it's very good thinking to yourself "go and do this and do that", but it's hard when you're out there".

Mourinho is well aware that there are only so many column inches to fill and the more the press focus on his interviews, the less they will scrutinise his players and their performances.

In contrast, there was a demonstration by fans against the club's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward with a plane flown over the Lancashire ground towing a banner that read: "Ed Woodward, a specialist in failure".

Paul Pogba has told Manchester United that he wants to quit Old Trafford and return to Juventus in January.

But what had been an unqualified United success to that point was somewhat diminished when Rashford headbutted Bardsley after being cynically fouled by the 33-year-old former United defender. When quizzed about still holding the prestigious title of "The Special One" he demanded "respect, respect, respect" from journalists, noting his three Premier League titles is more than the other division's bosses combined.

Nemanja Matic will play as the holding midfielder, and the Serb will be expected to bring stability and composure to a nervy Manchester United midfield.

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

"I never blame a player for missing penalties", he said.

The Red Devils will look to make it back to back wins in the to flight for the first time this season when they take on Watford away from home after the global break.

'I just want to take this opportunity to thank the awesome medical department and the coach, who has believed in me since day one'. It's good for us also.

United for the first time this season looked solid and comfortable at the back, with good performances from each member of the back four. 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. Fellaini was solid in the air, winning many of his aerial duels and was surprising with passing ability as he kept it simply and helped to recycle the ball forwards many times throughout the game.
