Rashford needs to start ahead of Lukaku, says Rio Ferdinand

Romelu Lukaku will not feature against Bournemouth

It is understood Mourinho was willing to let the Frenchman go in the summer, however, it appears Martial's recent performances - scoring four in his last three league games - have changed his manager's mind.

In a match that could prove vital in the race for Europa League qualification, Eddie Howe will look to further the fractious divides throughout the entire Manchester United camp.

Burley was asked if Lukaku's time at United was coming to an end. Indeed, the Red Devils showed excellent character following a brisk start from Bournemouth in the first half, which took them by surprise.

Marcus Rashford drops out after failing to net in United's last five games with Sanchez restored to the starting line-up after being on the bench for the 2-1 win over Everton last weekend. "We were really lucky because we were poor, defensively very bad", Mourinho said. People watching this game will not believe how hard we worked this week. "The team performed much better".

United improved after the restart, eventually claiming a third win in four league games through Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time goal.




Epitomised by his block in front of Marcus Rashford in the second half, the Dutch worldwide stuck to his task well all afternoon, and couldn't quite intercept Pogba's cross to Rashford for the decisive goal of the game. With Romelu Lukaku out of contention in this match, it will be intriguing to see what will Mourinho do with him in the next matches, but there was a feeling of things repeating themselves again.

United have kept just one clean sheet in the Premier League this season and their leaky defence was regularly exposed by Bournemouth.

"You can't get away from it [the criticism] but I'm not going to sit there and read all my comments [on social media]", Smalling said. "Some of our attacking movement was second to none". We gifted the first 25 minutes away again and that makes our job much more hard.

The Belgian was not part of the United team that won 2-1 at Bournemouth on Saturday after picking up an muscle injury in training on Friday.

Mourinho's next challenge comes in the form of a Champions League tie with Juventus on Wednesday, while Bournemouth travel to Newcastle United next Saturday.
