Rio Ferdinand believes Romelu Lukaku is having a negative impact on two Manchester United players and insists Marcus Rashford should be given an extended run in Jose Mourinho's starting line-up. He was often reacting in time to end Man United's moves and he is truly proving to be one of the leaders.
Ander Herrera, who came on in the 2nd half seemed to subtly criticise his own manager's playing style when he said: "Yes I think they were much better in the first half, but we were much better in the second".
"In the second half, I could understand some of the frustration because we produced some incredible chances and we didn't score".
Jose Mourinho described himself as "the luckiest manager in the Premier League" after a last-gasp goal from substitute Marcus Rashford earned Manchester United a come-from-behind 2-1 win at Bournemouth on Saturday. "We were really lucky because we were poor, defensively terrible", Mourinho said.
But, with Fred delivering an impressive performance last weekend, Mourinho does not have much of a concern, as far as personnel in the middle of the park is concerned.

Kosovo declared independence from Serbia 10 years after the bloody conflict between Serb forces and Kosovar-Albanian rebels. A deflected cross from Liverpool left back Andrew Robertson also bounced onto the crossbar after the break.
United's pressure nearly resulted in a goal when Ashley Young's free kick hit the woodwork, before Ake and Brooks did extremely well to deny Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba with some last-ditch blocks to keep the game level, while Ander Herrara curled an effort narrowly wide moments later.
"The good thing is that the team has this face of a fantastic character and the heart that any result, the game is not over", he said, per the Guardian.
Jose Mourinho will look to close down the risky Bournemouth attack. Mourinho clearly has a spell over the teams managed by English coaches.
"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. "I'm trying to find a balance". We gifted the first 25 minutes away again and that makes our job much more hard.
However, the English talent was once again a substitute at Bournemouth on Saturday but proved his point to the manager with an added-time victor to seal a 2-1 victory.
