Mourinho: United 'very lucky' to beat Bournemouth after poor opening half

Romelu Lukaku will not feature against Bournemouth

Chris Smalling insists Manchester United now believe they can beat Juventus after admitting the Red Devils were in "awe" of the Italians during the game at Old Trafford last month.

This has been prevalent in the past few weeks with United scoring an equaliser in three of their last five in all competitions, often producing an inspiring second-half display.

United remain outside of the Premier League's top four, but again have a sense of momentum and objective that had eluded them earlier this season, and 55-year-old Mourinho told BT Sport: "We were a very, very lucky team".

Bournemouth were all over the visitors following that goal and both Fred and Paul Pogba were guilty of fouls borne purely out of frustration and not being able to get hold of the ball, with Luke Shaw lucky to not concede a penalty.

The two coaches went head-to-head a number of times, with the Scotsman finally tasting victory as part of his famous 1999 Treble-winning campaign, eliminating the Old Lady in the Champions League semi-finals. "We're going to win a lot of points that way, and a lot of other teams are going to gain or lose points that way".

Pence also noted that Abrams' campaign is "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals". "I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams ". Abrams and Kemp are both condemning an automated telephone call filled with racist and anti-Semitic statements .


Jose Mourinho was keen to stress that Ander Herrera was the decisive factor in laying the platform for Manchester United's late victor against AFC Bournemouth over the weekend. When we are in control we have no problems, when the opponent is in control I think the team has problems. "Barça have wonderful players, they want to win the Champions League but our team is very competitive and we can win the trophy", Pjanic told Sky Sport.

Cristiano Ronaldo may not have found the net for Juventus on Saturday, but the Portugal star has helped his new club to their best-ever start to a Serie A season. It was one of the best first-half performances we have seen in the Premier League since we have been promoted.

"We were really poor, defensively bad".

We'll have to wait and see how the players progress over the next 48 hours but it will be a huge boost to United if Costa, Matuidi, Mandzukic, Chiellini or Bernardeschi miss the game on Wednesday night.

This was a start, particularly as Bournemouth had begun the season so impressively. No matter how many minutes to the end of the game, we have the feeling that anything can happen.
