Ander Herrera inspired United's transformation, says boss Jose Mourinho

Ander Herrera inspired United's transformation, says boss Jose Mourinho”

Jose Mourinho in charge of Manchester United, has never lost a Premier League game to a side managed by an English manager.

They have identified Herrera as one of those players who can help them achieve this goal, and considering he could come as cheap as £3million this January, it might not be a bad decision at all.

United face the Serie A champions on Wednesday and Mourinho can not be certain whether the Belgium striker will be ready to travel. This was yet another dismal defensive display from United, with De Gea exposed time and time again.

'And I think he's good enough to start.

Mourinho had expressed his confidence before this game that United's position in the Premier League table would look very different heading into the second half of the season.

Mourinho believes eighth-placed United, who are unbeaten in their last three league games, will improve and close the gap on their rivals over the next couple of months.

"We were defensively terrible".

Manchester United substitute Marcus Rashford scored a stoppage-time victor as they came from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 away and close the gap on the top four in an exciting Premier League clash on Saturday.

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.

He said on BT Sport: "They were much better than us in the first half, and we were better in the second". Mourinho pointed towards the duo's recovery as well, saying that they are raring to go against Bournemouth on Saturday. "My coaches said it was the best warm-up of the season", Mourinho said. I love the song "Attack, attack, attack" but you need to know that when you lose the ball you have to have stability. "Some of our attacking movement was second to none".

"We can not give the first 25 minutes away".

Manchester United travelled to Bournemouth on Saturday knowing that a defeat would have left them six points behind their overperforming hosts.

Manchester United Chris Smalling has said he and his teammates were "in awe" of Juventus in their recent Champions League clash, and has challenged the players to put things right in their return meeting.
