Mourinho demands more goals from Man United forwards

Mourinho demands more goals from Man United forwards

Considering United made six changes for the UCL match against Basel, though, there is a chance Mourinho decides to play with his Best XI once again in an effort to add another three points to their tally.

He could also include Victor Lindelof if he opts to switch to a back three system - a tactic that has caused Everton problems recently. Of course, Lukaku isn't the only former Everton player in the building - Marouane Fellaini has become a key player for Mourinho, and he is [4.4] to score his third goal in four games.

Five months on and the striker is making impressive progress in his recovery from knee ligament damage and, having initially been released in the summer, has been rewarded with a contract until the end of the season.

"But I think he also deserves credit for that because of the way he plays, the way he is committed, what he does with and without the ball, not just the last touch and the goal but his overall contribution".

"What I did with him was what I do normally with every player - like Jones".

"I said several times last season he is a real finisher".

'It's a new challenge but I am strong mentally and when I focus on an objective nothing can stop me.

Despite contrasting starts to this season, Mourinho and Old Trafford appear to bring out the best in Koeman which is why the blue half of Merseyside may well be travelling back along the East Lancs Road on Sunday evening with a smile on their face.

"We know him really well", Koeman said.

'Now we're building it up and it's getting stronger.

Fast forward back to the present and the now 31-year-old forward is preparing for another appearance at the Theatre of Dreams.

"For sure I would have kept some of the players that were sold, for sure I would not buy some of the players that were bought".

"No - I want to feel the same pressure I had before". We are in no rush, when we are ready we will be ready.

Romelu Lukaku continued his fine goal-scoring form with another strike in midweek so the Belgian global should once again lead the line up front. When I went to Burnley, they wanted me on a permanent [transfer] straight away, I didn't want that to happen because I wasn't sure it was the right move for me at the time, so I went there on loan.

Red-hot striker Romelu Lukaku will continue in attack against his former club but midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be given a break after a disappointing midweek display.
