Two losses in a less than a week for Jose Mourinho has completely changed the feeling around the club, there's no denying that. Perhaps understandable the loss against Manchester City, with both clubs seeming to be progressing at different paces, however the defeat against Feyenoord felt like something similar.

Mourinho shouldn’t be surprised – team selection was wrong

Following Manchester United's 2-1 defeat against Manchester City at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho has claimed he would have started a different starting XI.

As positively as United fans feel about Mourinho, we shouldn't shy away from the fact our manager should have known that Jesse Lingard and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were not the right players to start in the derby.

Manchester United's game against West Ham has been delayed for 45 minutes after our team coach arrived an hour late, and was then ambushed by the home supporters.

The coach stopped around 100 yards from the ground and couldn't get closer thanks to the West Ham fans. The club secretary went to the referee's room and asked for an extension, to give the players exactly the right amount of time as they would usually get to prepare.

Following Manchester United's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, where United dominated possession and chances, preventing the opposition from having a single shot on target, Louis van Gaal has praised his team's performance.

Yes I was very happy with the performance and I think it was a four or five to zero game.

Dimitri Payet was booked after 55 minutes for fouling Jesse Lingard. 10 minutes later, he went down in the box under a challenge from Marcos Rojo.

Louis van Gaal claimed Payet had dived after the game while Slaven Bilic, unsurprisingly, argued he didn't.

Referee Martin Atkinson didn't award a penalty, but then also didn't book Payet for diving.

Reactions to United’s win over Norwich

Republik Of Mancunia at related • 0 views

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.

All you can do is win the games in front of you. If United win today and City lose the Champions League beckons but ultimately it is not in the hands of Van Gaal's men.

However, there is an FA Cup Final to look forward to next weekend and an increasingly excellent record at Old Trafford to point to.

With the scoreline still at 0-0, Dimitri Payet broke in to the box and went to ground under a challenge from Marcos Rojo. Payet was appealing for a penalty, but none was given. Replays showed that Rojo may have got the slighted of touches, but Payet was already throwing himself to the floor.

Payet, already on a yellow card, could have been shown a second for simulation and sent off.
