Manchester (United Kingdom) (AFP) – Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho defended his decision not to allow misfiring striker Romelu Lukaku to take a penalty during his side’s 2-0 Champions League win over Benfica.

Lukaku made a blistering start to his United career after joining from Everton, scoring 11 goals in his first 10 games, but has now gone six matches without finding the net.

Borthwick-Jackson to play for United U-23s despite Wolves loan

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was loaned out to Wolves this season with the hopes of giving the young Manchester United defender some needed game time.

Under Louis van Gaal, it appeared as though Borthwick-Jackson was the next in line to the left-back spot after Luke Shaw.

However, Shaw is well out of favour with Jose Mourinho, meaning United have played Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo at left-back, with all three of them failing to impress.

Manchester United were minutes away from beating Chelsea on Sunday night, when Memphis Depay was careless in possession and Chelsea went on the counter-attack. Daley Blind slipped and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson played Diego Costa onside in the lead up to their equalising goal.

What was more frustrating than Memphis' inability to play an easy ball to Morgan Schneiderlin, who had a free run at goal, was his failure to try and make amends for his mistake.

United, Mourinho and making a case for the defence

Republik Of Mancunia at related • 0 views

The majority of Jose Mourinho's first season in charge at Manchester United has been dominated by one major issue: his side does not score enough goals. It is hard to argue with the criticism, for while United have only failed to score in five Premier League games this season, their profligacy in front of goal has meant they have struggled to put games to bed, which has in turn seen them drop precious points.

Blind: I’ll give my all for Mourinho

Daley Blind has been used out of position in the centre of defence all season and hasn't done a dreadful job. Some of Blind's skills make him useful playing at the back, in terms of his vision and ability to pass the ball out from the back. However, his lack of pace and height are weaknesses for him playing in this position.

Daley Blind put in a surprisingly good performance against Everton in Manchester United's recent 1-0 win over Everton. Blind has been used out of position in central defence all season, and while some of his qualities suit the position, he often struggles when faced with particularly fast strikers, or ones that are big and strong.

Reactions to United’s win over Norwich

1. This game was a must win so it's great to get the three points and put the pressure on Manchester City ahead of their game against Arsenal on Sunday. But the football was just awful. United were in control of the game, with 67% possession and 15 shots, but it was so boring to watch. There was no pace, hardly any clear cut chances were created, and the players looked disinterested.

It is impossible to escape the air of despondency that has engulfed Manchester United over the last three years. A quarter of a century in the making under Sir Alex Ferguson, the spirit and self-belief he fostered in players and fans alike has been entirely sapped.
