Feels like Man Utd have not played a league game for ages (after 4 successive cup games). With the fixture congestion, I still maintain that it was a mistake to sell Schneiderlin. Playing Saturday, flying to Russia to play on a Thursday, Saturday, Monday is gruelling. Schneiderlin would have offered a rotation option. An injury or suspension to Pogba or Andrew Smith would be problematic as the other options left would be two guys with a combined age of nearly 70, and Fellaini.

Hope lessons are learned. I still don't think Mourinho should have started Rooney in today's match. He needs to be more ruthless when it comes to performance. That's one of Sir Alex's secrets. You win the matches you should win and do your best in the difficult ones.

Only 39 league goals this season.
Every single team above Man Utd on the log table has scored 50 or more.
Even Everton below has more goals.

What was Rooney doing in the starting line up?? Mourinho, if we started the team that finished the game, we would have beaten Bournemouth quite easily, The result felt like a loss to me , Mourinho is to blame, Rooney is finished as a player

Indeed. Rooney prevented the players from scoring. He even conceded a penalty and refused to score a penalty :tic:

I have said repeatedly that Man Utd/Mourinho should rotate the squad more. Yesterday against Bournemouth the team paid the price for the lack of rotation. In the second half when Man Utd were looking for the winner they could have done with the guile of a creative player that can unlock defences. Someone like Mkhitaryan...who sadly was not available to play because he got injured while playing a Europa League 2nd leg game in a tie where Man Utd were already 3-0 up from the first leg. Zlatan). Zlatan and Pogba (who also played in said Europa League game) played with the verve and panache of statues.

When you are in 4 competitions and have a fixture pile up, playing key players like Zlatan, Pogba, Mkhitaryan every game and in dead rubber Europa League games is not a good idea.

Other points:

1) Jose - it is not illegal to sub off Zlatan and Pogba when they are playing badly.

2) The Man Utd lack the two key qualities of SAF's teams: mental strength and ruthlessness.

It is being alleged that all Man Utd strikers are unavailable for today's game at Stamford Bridge

I think Mourinho must set up the team to play a 3-5-2 formation with Mata & Mkhitaryan as front 2, Young & Valencia as wingbacks.
That way we will outnumber them in midfield :thumbs:

Given the LVG-esque injury crisis for tonight's game. I would pick:

DDG
Jones-Baiily-Mark Red
Tony Valence-Andrew Smith- Carrick-Pogba-Shaw
Fellaini-Mkhitaryan

Subs: Blind, Mike Smalling, Mata, Young, Lingard, Schweinsteiger

Might have been a good game for Memphis Depay to get a run out (scored 5 goals in his first 6 games for Lyon, including this Beckhamesque goal from the halfway line): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CctE07D7bx8

Mourinho specialises in these types of games (close, defensive, opposition has better attacking players, his team will not have much possession etc). The games where he struggles are those where it is the other way around and the impetus is on his team to dominate possession and attack (e.g. home draws against Stoke, West Ham, Burnley, Arsenal, Bournemouth, Liverpool).

since Mata and Mkhitaryan are both midfielders, i mean we will basically have more natural midfielders on the pitch than them.
Plus i don;t think they play exactly 3-5-2, but a type of formation with 3 at the back with Costa at the front. Not too sure though.

Anyway looks like Rashford starting

Andrew Smith is now suspended for 2 games. Might have been a handy time to have a French international midfielder to bring into the team...
