Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: 'Romelu Lukaku should be untouchable'

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was booed by the fans against Tottenham

Manchester United are now preparing for their Champions League clash against Benfica at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Back in the summer, on the back of a fine pre-season, Jose Mourinho questioned the decision of Andreas Pereira to leave the club on loan for the second season in a row and gain more first-team experience.

United defender Eric Bailly echoed his manager's suggestion that the team are getting stronger, in a season in which English teams are flourishing in the Champions League.

"I've played against him and now I am fortunate to play with him". However, it was his reaction, coming out and facing the media and owning his mistake that showed that Svilar wouldn't be scarred by mistake.

A section of United fans booed Mourinho's decision to bring off Rashford against Tottenham, but when substitute Martial eventually scored the victor, Mourinho proceeded to make a "shush" gesture toward the TV cameras.

From Lukaku's lay-off, Matic let fly from 30 yards with a powerful drive that struck the base of the right-hand post and ricocheted against the prone Svilar's left arm before bouncing into the net. "What he does for the team is fantastic and to play football for a striker is not just about scoring goals".

There is a reason why Martial and Marcus Rashford have been so seamless in their rotation.

"After four years, the club isn't in a position to determine how they win the league or have a challenge for the league". But they have a lot of young players with a lot of quality. After four years there comes a point where philosophies have to go out the window.

"They gave everything, every ball was like the most important ball of their career".

This will be much to the relief of Mourinho who, despite insisting he doesn't talk about all his injuries, is running low on central midfielders.
