Despite his troubles with United, Lukaku has maintained his form with Belgium, scoring twice in the win over Switzerland in mid-October, his last goals in any form of football. I always dreamed of playing for United, to have many games and score goals. "I don't know how long he will be out, but he is a fantastic example".

"But I was with Roberto on the phone. trying to understand the problem and evolution of the problem". I could go on forever.

While Lukaku and Fellaini are set for involvement on Saturday - along with Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, over whom there had also been questions marks regarding fitness - Eric Bailly is not.

United had chances and Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku forced Wayne Hennessey into good saves but the late victor they have relied on a couple of times this season never arrived.

"In the first half, we needed a bit more aggression, we found the spaces well".

"We played a game like it was one more game and I don't think it was one more game".

5 - The United manager did not mess around with his substitutions and was quick to throw on Marcus Rashford, Marouane Fellaini and Alexis Sanchez early in the second half, but it can not be a coincidence that so many of his attackers are not performing; for that, the manager must take responsibility.

But Castles doesn't believe de Lijt is the answer to Mourinho's current defensive woes, insisting the United boss needs a dully developed centre-back, ideally with Premier League experience. We played as if it was just one more game, not a game we really needed to win.

This is despite Pogba saying last week that he has "no regrets" about leaving Turin for Manchester.

Mourinho has said often since arriving at Old Trafford that there were decisions made before his time that he did not agree with. Do you know? I know.

MF Nemanja Matic, 6 - He has taken plenty of criticism for his performances this season but he was better against Palace.

And Ince has criticised Martial, suggesting he should have used the opportunity to prove he can be a key player for Mourinho. "I was champion with him". So Woodward needs to balance the opportunity of potentially doubling his money on a player who has never really fit the manager's philosophy, with selling the club's big asset.
