Sanchez to start for Man United - Mourinho

Sanchez to start for Man United - Mourinho

"Wolves, by the way they faced the game, I think they deserve it".

Thoughts on Manchester United's performance against Wolves this afternoon?

This was a match where we could see all the good and all the bad things from Paul Pogba. It seems like Anthony Martial should get a run of matches in starting XI - to wake Sanchez up, but also to see what the Frenchman will do. Of course, we had a better result and one point is better than zero.

Is Jose Mourinho right on this occasion?

Sanchez tried - nearly too hard.


Manchester United are coming into the fixture on the back of a three-game winning streak in all competitions. They've spent money, they have style and they play with no fear.

French worldwide Paul Pogba touched the ball on skilfully after collecting Conor Coady's headed clearance, and Fred deposited an unstoppable 18-yard shot into the Wolves goal.

"I want him in this process of adaptation", he told reporters (via the club's official website).

He did persist on Saturday. He was taken off in the 62nd minute for Juan Mata. Sanchez shook his head at the wasted effort.

- Fred is the 500th different player to score a competitive goal for Manchester United (excluding own goals).


Sanchez scored 15, 11 and 21 goals during his three seasons in Barcelona.

Joao Moutinho scored a deserved equaliser for Wolves with a fine finish early in the second half and, although United upped the pressure late on, they could not find a victor in "Fergie time", as they slumped to another disappointing result.

Manchester United are aiming to be among the challengers for the Premier League title this season after they finished in second place and without a trophy last term.

Roger Federer is an inspiration for many sports personalities and José Mourinho was the last one joining the list.

The Red Devils go up against the Championship outfit aiming to bounce back after a dire 1-1 draw with Wolves yesterday.


"I think good results, and good performances, they make miracles", said Mourinho at his press conference on Friday. They play like I like to play which is like the World Cup final. They play every ball with every second with the maximum intensity and desire and we didn't.
