Jose Mourinho says Marcus Rashford was Manchester United's 'mad dog' at Southampton

Jose Mourinho says Marcus Rashford was Manchester United's 'mad dog' at Southampton

Six minutes later, it was 2-2 when Rashford got to the byline and cut the ball into the six-yard box, where Herrera nipped in front of his marker to score with a cute back-heel that McCarthy got a hand to but could not keep out.

In the dressing room row, the Daily Record claim that Mourinho labelled Pogba a "virus". I'm very excited to see how Dalot plays in his first start.

Speaking after the match Mourinho said: "We lost so many balls in midfield and lost so many balls in our transitions to the final third".

Mourinho was forced to field a back three which included midfielders Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay after injury ruled out Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly. Which I think, if we don't have as much possession in periods we still need an out ball so we will have that with those two.

"With all the respect, we don't have many mad dogs that bite the ball and press all the time we don't have many people with that spirit". The players they don't understand that simplicity is genius, especially in some parts of the pitch.

The 55-year-old used the example of Tottenham to highlight his point, explaining that the days of plundering the north London side for their best players - as Sir Alex Ferguson was able to do a couple of times - are over.

With Palace in better form than their league position suggests, it's understandable that they are priced at around 4/7 to win the game, but a 2-0 win for Palace at 13/2 makes plenty of appeal.

Saturday's game with Southampton certainly looked like a relatively simple way to get positive momentum going but it proved to be anything but. "Doesn't matter the system we play, has to do with the characteristics of the players".

Still seventh in the table, the Red Devils could end the weekend nine points off the top four.

Pogba has reportedly told his former team-mates at Juventus he wants a return to the Old Lady, while he also said Turin feels like home, and it could be the cards if his relationship with Mourinho doesn't improve.
