Derby County manager Frank Lampard has admitted that he is pleased about Jose Mourinho guiding Manchester United to a much-needed triumph over Newcastle United and he is hopeful that the players can produce a similar performance on a weekly basis. The Portuguese tactician had come under fire after United went winless for four matches on the bounce but they came back in style with a dramatic 3-2 comeback triumph after being 2-0 down at one stage.

Speaking in a news conference, Lampard was personally content with Mourinho ending United’s lean patch and believes the players must stand up for the head coach in the forthcoming games, he said: “For Jose Mourinho, being a manager myself now, I know how tough it is when things aren’t quite going right. (The result against Newcastle) was a massive win, which I was personally very happy with for him, and now it’s down to the players. The players have to perform at the level they did in the second half against Newcastle every week.”

Spain manager Luis Enrique has heaped praise on goalkeeper David de Gea after he starred during the Nations League triumph over England on Friday night. The Manchester United shot-stopper had received stick from the country’s supporters after his average showing during the recent World Cup but he managed to make amends with a confidence performance against the Three Lions.

De Gea was called on to make a number of saves during the course of the game but the most influential of the lot came from a Marcus Rashford from the point-blank range. As such, Enrique was appreciative of the efforts of the United number one, who came through the fixture without making a single error of judgement.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that goalkeeper Joel Pereira will be sent out on loan for the 2018/19 campaign. The Portuguese footballer has barely featured for the Red Devils being their third-choice goalkeeper and Mourinho has now indicated that the shot-stopper would be loaned out with Lee Grant coming in to take up his position.

Speaking in a press conference in Los Angeles, he said: “We did Lee Grant because we have a fantastic young goalkeeper (Joel Pereira) who needs to play football. Joel is a Manchester United goalkeeper but, two years without football, he has to play. And to protect that position we got Lee with experience in Championship and Stoke City in the Premier League, so he is ready to fulfil that position. Joel is here with us. It’s good for him to play but then he will go on loan.”

Manchester United have been struggling ever since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.


The club have gone from regular Champions League contenders into a club that even fails to qualify for the competition. The demise from the top positions is certainly surprising considering that United have spent a huge sum of money on new players in the last five years. Even after the appointment of Jose Mourinho, the club spent close to £ 150 million on players like Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Yet, there has been little joy in the campaign – even after the League Cup victory – as the club at facing an uncertain future with regard to a top four finish.

Manchester United may be 13 points behind runaway leaders Chelsea at Christmas but the Premier League title isn’t out of reach just yet. Jose Mourinho’s side are unbeaten in their last eight domestic fixtures and the Red Devils are starting to put together an ominous run of form as the business end of the season approaches.

The likes of Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Anthony Martial have raised their game in recent weeks, but the emergence of Henrikh Mkhitaryan as an attacking option has helped Mourinho’s men to find their best form ahead of the busy festive period. The Armenian star took a while to settle and adjust to life at Old Trafford but he is now arguably one of the first names on the team sheet.

Jose Mourinho claims that he would not be afraid to drop any Manchester United star if it would benefit the team.


The Portuguese has come under intense scrutiny over the last couple of weeks, as United struggle to get any consistency in their results. After an excellent start to his life at Old Trafford, Mourinho has overseen just one league victory in the last five games. His team’s defensive approach in the 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Monday night has drawn even more flak from the critics. Mourinho was always expected to go defensive when it comes to big matches and his staunch supporters would not have been surprised by United’s approach against Liverpool.
