Lingard double saves Manchester United against Burnley

Jose Mourinho

United were held to a 2-2 draw by Burnley on Boxing Day, in a match they had to come from two goals down in, as they fell further behind Pep Guardiola's City in the hunt for the top flight trophy.

Of the other signings made by Moyes and Van Gaal, Mourinho seemingly doesn't trust Luke Shaw after the left back's injury problems and sees Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo as squad players, nothing more.

Manchester United found themselves 2-0 down to Sean Dyche's side at Old Trafford on Tuesday, Ashley Barnes' close-range finish and Steven Defour's stunning free-kick putting the Clarets in control at the break.

Manchester City buy full-backs for the price of strikers so when you speak about big football clubs you are speaking about the history of the football club.

"You think Real Madrid, Inter Milan is not as big as we are?" One thing is a big club and another thing is a big football team.

AFP Jose Mourinho is said to be worried his players are not mentally up for the challenge

Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his first Premier League start of the campaign and must've been relieved that he was taken off by his manager after struggling in the first half. Arsenal doesn't have the responsibility to win it, Chelsea doesn't have the responsibility to win it.

Mourinho spoke after the game about the lack of financial clout on offer to him at United as he once again reached "peak Mourinho" in blaming everybody else but himself for his side's troubles.

Mourinho was handed a double fitness boost yesterday when French striker Anthony Martial and defender Matteo Darmian proved their fitness ahead of tomorrow's home clash with Southampton.

"And then instead of more positional players like Zlatan and [Romelu] Lukaku, we chose to go with Mkhitaryan, Lingard and [Juan] Mata all three trying to play in these areas behind Lukaku and we can say we had some success".

The return of Martial, in particular, will help Mourinho tomorrow as he looks to improve on two shot-shy performances that resulted in damaging draws against Leicester and Burnley.
