Mourinho blasts Paul Scholes for Pogba criticism

GETTY    
     Romelu Lukaku was carried off on a stretcher following a clash of heads

United will be without Romelu Lukaku after the striker was stretchered off following a clash of heads on Saturday while Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been ruled out for a month with a knee injury.

Boos rang around Old Trafford at the final whistle and former players questioned United's players' attitude and Mourinho's ability to get the best out of his team.

José Mourinho is becoming ever more desperate to explain Manchester United's slump.

"The pressure is coming from behind", United midfielder Paul Pogba said, "but we have to forget about everyone else and focus on ourselves". United's other results over Christmas are 2-2 draws against Leicester and Burnley, and its main task might now be holding onto a place in the top four with Liverpool three points back in fourth.

"I am happy with the refereeing performances in these matches and [they were] just unlucky decisions". We know that, that is why I have worked so hard on keeping clean sheets.

Coach Bill Belichick said weather changes quickly and they will be ready for anything come game time. Lewis finished with a season-high 26 carries for 93 yards.

On the red side of Manchester, Manchester United are suffering under Jose Mourinho's command, and they are placed second in the Premier League due to poor performances.

"I think we deserved to win against Leicester [City, a 2-2 draw] against Southampton [a 0-0 draw], but this is football and today I think we did what we had to do".

"Not every one of us has to be phenomenal like he was as a player".

Southampton's manager, Mauricio Pellegrino, said he did not see the incident. We lose one of the only two changes I have on the bench to change in attacking areas, leaving just one for the rest of the 90 minutes - I have to bring on Rashford to play all 90 minutes when he clearly needs a bit of rest. It was a long time ago that I don't even remember - it was a match at home against Brighton? I don't remember the last time [Marouane] Fellaini played. "I don't remember him playing during the season [he played in a Carabao Cup game in September], so we have problems". They go from great potential to normal players. "I haven't seen the replay but it is hard for the referee to see in one second what happened in all different places ..."

"I think it is also a frustrating afternoon for Craig because he's a fantastic referee, one of the most promising referees in Europe".
