City and United granted extra time to explain derby fracas

Manchester City players celebrate victory at Old Trafford

United's £75million summer signing began the season with a bang, but the goals have dried lately. But a run of one in nine led to criticism and the resurfacing of questions over his ability to score against big clubs.

Manchester United remains second in the Premier League following a 1-0 win over Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Juan Mata supplied a sublime cross, straight on Lukaku's head who headed home in the first half. However, Mourinho was pleased that his side were able to come away with the important three points, keeping in distance with leaders City, who won their game 4-0 at Swansea.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has explained why Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been left out of the squad for the recent matches.

The host enjoyed the majority of possession but looked vulnerable to Bournemouth's counter-attacks, Daniels and Dan Gosling forcing saves from De Gea within two minutes of each other.




"Unless there is something we are unaware of, it was a very surprising lack of reaction from Lukaku to his goal", said Shearer. Just that and nothing more than that. But Anthony Martial missed a glorious chance to find the target, while Marcus Rashford crashed a shot against the bar from distance.

And the Special One insists he might as well go on holiday if he feels United can not claw back the 11-point gap to rivals Manchester City.

Mourinho was accused of employing defensive tactics and Van Gaal who was often criticised for boring football, insists Mourinho's team is worse.

- Following its promotion in 2015, Bournemouth has taken just 13 points from a possible 87 against the "top six" teams in the Premier League (29 games). "If we had scored the second it would have been a calm night for us", he said.
