Jose Mourinho takes shot at Chris Smalling's hair after Manchester United win

Rashford is likely to find himself playing second fiddle to Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United

Manchester United punctured Watford's bubble on Saturday, withstanding late pressure from the surprise early Premier League pacesetters to win 2-1 and relieve the pressure on beleaguered manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho's research included two small errors: Rashford played the equivalent of 34.1 90-minute matches in 2016-17 for an average of 63.8 full games - and it overlooked how the player has had a longer wait between starts since Alexis Sanchez's arrival from Arsenal in January.

But Mourinho insisted that Pogba has given him no indication that he is unhappy at Old Trafford and that if he or his agent wish to pursue a move, they should tell him directly.

This time Young's corner was sent deep into the box, with Marouane Fellaini's knock-down skilfully controlled on the chest by Smalling, with the defender then arrowing the ball past Foster from six yards.

Icardi also finished on top of the scoring charts last season, tied with Ciro Immobile.

"He's playing simple and well".

Jose Mourinho's men will now travel to Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday in buoyant mood before hosting Wolves on Saturday.


He also praised the spirit his side showed to defend their lead in the closing stages, even if he felt they should have been home and hosed by that point.

"I feel a bit frustrated because we had everything in the first half to kill the game, if we play the second half the way we did in the last part of the first half, we would be in this moment a completely different result". And I repeat, Marouane [Fellaini] is really important for them in two hard matches, matches of two-against-two, because Burnley and Watford play two strikers, two powerful strikers.

Two of the players Mourinho mentioned in his defence of Rashford, Solanke and Loftus-Cheek, had previously failed to break into the first team at Chelsea during the Portuguese's second stewardship at Stamford Bridge.

"We knew that. But they have quality, they have confidence because they won the first four games". Of course, I am happy with the players.

"Juan and Ander, even if they are not playing or not playing a lot, not starting matches, from the personality point-of-view and character point-of-view, by what they represent in the modern society in football, they are nearly unique pieces that I also don't want to lose".

"We spoke at half-time and tried to improve things and I think we made a step forward".

"The most important thing for me is that we made a very big effort again".
