Romelu Lukaku's Man United comeback timetable revealed

Romelu Lukaku's Man United comeback timetable revealed

Jesse Lingard has easily been one of Manchester United's most lethal attacking threats this season, despite not always being the go-to player when the Red Devils were in desperate need of goals.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho admits Romelu Lukaku was desperate to play against Everton yesterday.

He added: "I feel in a good place". "Our performance was really good so maybe I'm lucky this time and the kings of rock and roll that said I wasn't performing last month will say I'm performing now", he said.

Lingard had just scored Manchester United's second goal on Monday evening to ease the nerves which were beginning to show as opponents Everton pursued an equaliser, when the free-roaming midfielder leaned into the pitchside camera and put his finger to his lips.

Jose Mourinho is unsure if Manchester United will be active during the ongoing January transfer window after admitting that the team are in trouble at the moment owing to their growing injury list.

Jose Mourinho has suggested Paul Scholes' recent criticism of Manchester United's Paul Pogba could be due to jealousy over the amount of money the France worldwide earns. Exhausted people, not many players to rotate, we could anticipate that Sam [Allardyce] was going to make a lot of changes. Michael Carrick played in pre-season but I don't remember him playing during the season so we have problems.

Fans voted Paul Pogba as the man of the match after the victory. He has been stressing on the fact that the club has spent money on important players like Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku but nothing like the amount on a collective level like City.

"But I think Scholes will be in the history as a phenomenal player, not as a pundit". If one day Paul [Scholes] decides to be a manager, I wish he can be 25 per cent as susccessful as myself. So 25 is around six trophies. So if he's 25%, he'll be quite happy. It was a welcome tonic for Mourinho amid reports the United manager is beginning to lose the support of his players after branding them "childish" and "immature" and admitting the squad needs major investment to catch City.

"I think something happened at half time that made them burst out all together because they were okay in the first half but in the second half, they were different class".
