'Defensively awful': Jose Mourinho relief after Manchester United late show

Sanchez starts for United but Lukaku absent

Sanchez starts for United but Lukaku absent

Eric Bailly has been largely outcast by Mourinho since the debacle against Brighton in the second game of the season, but is surely time for him to be recalled.

Manchester United have received a timely boost as Juventus have confirmed a triple injury concern ahead of their Champions League showdown in Turin on Wednesday night. "When we are in control we have no problems but when the opponent is in control we do".

The Cherries started strongly and got their rewards after just 11 minutes when Callum Wilson finished off a move that saw the United defence split open by Junior Stanislas, helped by poor defending from the visitors. "The first half was a disaster".

After being left on the bench against Everton last month, he wasn't included in the squad at the weekend to face Bournemouth, with Mourinho confirming before the game that the Belgian worldwide had picked up an injury problem.

At the other end, Mourinho had clearly seen enough and threw on Rashford and Ander Herrera in place of Juan Mata and the ineffective Fred.

Although numerous Red Devils should be praised for showing passion and determination in their desire to turn the game around, not everybody was willing to go the extra mile to ensure that we left the Vitality with all three points on Saturday. "We were really poor, defensively very bad".

"It looked like we don't work tactically during the week which is the worst feeling for me".

"I felt that the team needed a player like Ander to give us balance in that position, to give us more pressure, recover the ball faster and also to protect Ashley Young, so I think I was happy with that change". The bone of contention remains the focal point of the Manchester United attack, a responsibility which should be bestowed on Marcus Rashford once again, with Romelu Lukaku struggling to perform at his best. My coaches said it was the best warm-up of the season. 'I think in the second half we could have had four or five goals.

Meanwhile, the Manchester United attacking unit is at full strength, with Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard now fully fit. The two points we lost against Chelsea in the last minute [two weeks ago], we got them today.
