Mourinho reveals half-time talk that inspired Man United's crucial victory over Bournemouth

Mourinho reveals half-time talk that inspired Man United's crucial victory over Bournemouth”

He said on BT Sport: "They were much better than us in the first half, and we were better in the second".

Romelu Lukaku did not travel with Manchester United for their game at Bournemouth on Saturday, with reports stating he was unhappy about being left out of the starting lineup for the win against Everton last Sunday.

"We can not give the first 25 minutes away".

United had conceded to an early goal from Callum Wilson before Anthony Martial equalised.

Manchester United remain second in their Champions League group behind Juventus, but are desperate to get something from their visit to Italy to make qualification for the last 16 less tricky. The point-blank saves against Callum Wilson and David Brooks in the first and second half respectively were the best that come to mind.

Houston Texans take wide receiver Demaryius Thomas from Denver
In that scenario, the Broncos would have been sending draft picks away for one more cog to make a playoff push. For the Texans , this is an immediate response after Will Fuller V tore his ACL on Thursday.

The 61st minute goal was the difference between the two sides until eight minutes from time when Super Eagles forward and Arsenal substitute Alex Iwobi setup French striker Alexandre Lacazette for the equalising goal.

Mourinho brought on Ander Herrera and Rashford just before the hour mark to great effect, with the Spaniard bringing extra energy in midfield after replacing Fred; and Rashford should have scored when presented with a glorious opportunity on 65 minutes.

Losing the Spaniard on a free would be a huge error from the United, and more importantly, replacing the former Atletico Madrid man would be almost impossible. I feel like people watching this game will not believe how hard we trained this week.

"I can't understand why we started slow".

Mourinho criticised United's defending in the first half as a disaster. "So I think he was really good for us".

He added that he was frustrated by the team continuing to start slowly, "I really can not understand the kind of [early-match] mentality that brings me more white hair!" We've had an inconsistent start to the season and every point is huge for us.

This was a start, particularly as Bournemouth had begun the season so impressively.

United are nine points behind table-toppers Manchester City and Liverpool and five points off the final Champions League qualifying spot occupied by Arsenal.

Fans have called for Lukaku to be dropped and finally got their wish by Rashford couldn't do enough to convince Jose Mourinho to not drop him for the clash against Bournemouth.
