Mourinho Hits Back At Criticism Over Rashford In Ferocious Rant

Mourinho Hits Back At Criticism Over Rashford In Ferocious Rant”

Two goals in a devastating three-minute burst from Manchester United set up a 2-1 win over Watford at Vicarage Road, ending the home side's flawless start to the season.

"I'm going to do something, not for you but for the United fans, because I think I hold myself to the United fans and, for them, I am going to spend two minutes with you", he began.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku netted a first half brace in the 27th minutes and 44th minute for Manchester United in the must-win away game against Burnley on Sunday, September 1, 2018 to hand the Old Trafford dwellers full match points at Turf Moor.

United survived a late red card for Nemanja Matic, and needed a terrific stoppage time save from David De Gea from Christian Kabasele's header, to end Watford's 100 percent start to the season.

However, while Belgium midfielder Fellaini was involved in both goals, it was a Frenchman who was United's heartbeat.

"I am very happy with the points", he said.

After consecutive defeats against Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur, United are looking a little more settled. I felt that my central defenders need, especially in this moment of a bit of instability, they need somebody to support them and give them the first wall, physically.

Icardi also finished on top of the scoring charts last season, tied with Ciro Immobile.

Mourinho has been regularly criticised for his management of the Englishman, who has not started a game for Manchester United this season, with some pundits suggesting he should look to move elsewhere to help his development.

Good movement from United allowed Paul Pogba to cut back and hit a left-footed shot from atop the 18, but Ben Foster stooped to collect the ball.

United, backed by their vocal travelling fans, who regularly chanted the name of Mourinho, were establishing a foothold in the game and made their pressure count in the 35th minute.

- Lukaku has scored three goals and assisted two in his six league meetings with Watford.

Jose Mourinho's side were two up at half-time thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling.

United will be looking to win their third game of the season when they travel to Watford on Saturday evening, with the Hornets boasting a ideal record in their four matches so far.

"Then we go to two matches away - hard matches, difficult stadiums, Burnley and Watford - and I felt that my central defenders need, especially in the moment of a bit of instability, they need somebody to support them, to give them the first wall - physicality - but Marouane is giving us more than that".
