'Romelu Lukaku has to improve'

Jose Mourinho has shed light on his half-time team talk during Manchester United's encounter with Bournemouth on Saturday. In midfield, there are two more absentees, with the game against Bournemouth coming too soon for Marouane Fellaini and Scott McTominay.

The Red Devils will make the trip to Turin in a crucial Champions League fixture on Wednesday night as Mourinho's men look to secure yet another famous win in the Italian city.

After a nervy win over Everton last weekend, Manchester United came up with yet another last-gasp victory over Bournemouth this afternoon. Defensively very bad, absolutely awful, and when I say defensively I don't just look to my defenders, I look to my team as a team we didn't start pressing up.

Marcus Rashford scored a stoppage-time victor as Manchester United came from behind to snatch a dramatic 2-1 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Lukaku has scored four times in 14 appearances for United this season. "The second half was much better".

Asked how confident he is of Martial staying, Mourinho said: "I don't belong to the discussions of contracts".

"I can't believe how bad we started".

"In the second half, I could understand some of the frustration because we produced some incredible chances and we didn't score. So I think he was really good for us".

Mourinho will know, however, there must be much more to come if they are to revive their challenge for a top four place.

"You can't get away from it [the criticism] but I'm not going to sit there and read all my comments [on social media]", Smalling said.

Mourinho has spoken of striving to find the right balance to a team which has developed significant defensive vulnerabilities, and Herrera's performance showed he has a further option as he attempts to establish that balance and his strongest XI. No matter how many minutes to the end of the game, we have the feeling that anything can happen.

Sanchez last started a match for United in the 0-0 draw with Valencia in the Champions League a month ago.

Bournemouth dominated the first half and Eddie Howe praised his side despite the Cherries surrendering an advantage earned by Callum Wilson's 50th goal for the club.

"I wouldn't say it's up", Burley said of Lukaku's United career.
