Anthony Martial's earlier goal, his fifth from those same four games, had given them cause for encouragement towards the end of the first half, during which they fell behind with Callum Wilson's 11th-minute finish and were consistently put under pressure.

Manchester United are willing to accept a small fee for Ander Herrera, according to the Sun.

According to TEAMtalk, Rio said to BT Sport: "Marcus Rashford is a great talent who needs to be nurtured". Meanwhile, off the field continue to haunt Mourinho and his men. "And that affects other players in the team, like [Paul] Pogba and [Jesse] Lingard, who want to play off people".

Referring to those once-famous characteristics, Smalling, 28, said: "We're showing that attitude, never giving in and you can see that coming out".

"Genoa played well against Milan on Wednesday, they are a tough team that presses the whole field, but we deserved this important victory. He was really good". Next up for them, however, is Juventus, followed by Manchester City!

Manchester United remain second in their Champions League group behind Juventus, but are desperate to get something from their visit to Italy to make qualification for the last 16 less tricky. Jose Mourinho again explained things precisely.

Wisconsin town mourns 3 Girl Scouts, 1 adult killed in crash
The driver of a black Ford F-150 "crossed over a lane of traffic and into the ditch, striking the Girl Scout troop", Sgt. Four people, including three Girl Scouts were killed in a hit-and-run auto crash in Wisconsin on Saturday, police said.

We'll have to wait and see how the players progress over the next 48 hours but it will be a huge boost to United if Costa, Matuidi, Mandzukic, Chiellini or Bernardeschi miss the game on Wednesday night.

United have kept just one clean sheet in the Premier League this season and their leaky defence was regularly exposed by Bournemouth. I feel really frustrated.

And that is the worst part - it is hard to explain.

"We got off to a good start but weren't able to add a second and then we disappeared from the game a little", he added.

"We can not give the first 25 minutes away, it makes the game more hard". Former Chelsea player was initially at Bournemouth on loan and after this display, the club from Dean Court will be certain their move for Ake was a wise one.

Sadly for Eddie Howe and his men, this year has been odd - with places two through seven in the table all with a Premier League record for points at this stage. The only position that poses some minor problems is the right-back slot, with both Antonio Valencia and Diogo Dalot still not fully fit, leaving Ashley Young as the only viable option.
