Mourinho makes big statement about Man United's Premier League chances

Manchester United have pulled off yet another thrilling comeback in the Premier League this season.

Although numerous Red Devils should be praised for showing passion and determination in their desire to turn the game around, not everybody was willing to go the extra mile to ensure that we left the Vitality with all three points on Saturday. "I'm trying to find a balance".

Asked if there was an echo of the Alex Ferguson era in the never-say-die ethos of recent second halves, Smalling said: 'Yeah, we're showing that attitude - never giving in. In spite of the fact we won at Burnley and Watford away, I think the Chelsea performance was a very strong performance away from home.

Perhaps Mourinho could do with playing Herrera from the start of clashes as his tenacity could be infectious on the rest of the team.

The Red Devils conceded an early goal and were dominated throughout the first-hour even though Anthony Martial did manage to restore parity in the 35th minute. And I do not just look to my defenders, as a team we did not start pressing up, the work we did during the week.

"I think Herrera made a big difference to the team", Scholes said after the game on BT Sport.

This has been prevalent in the past few weeks with United scoring an equaliser in three of their last five in all competitions, often producing an inspiring second-half display. "Rashford similarly impressed from the bench, and Mourinho added: "(At half-time) I said it is impossible to play worse than we did, so the second half will be better for sure.

Manchester United are willing to accept a small fee for Ander Herrera, according to the Sun. I love the song "Attack, attack, attack" but you need to know that when you lose the ball you have to have stability.

Mandzukic missed the win over Cagliari due to a niggling ankle injury and the Croatian worldwide was unable to take part in the full training session on Sunday so it remains to be seen whether he'll be fit to face United. They got the win here and deserve credit for extending their resurgence to four games unbeaten in the league, but there are not merely cracks on show but gaping chasms, most of which are still found in the defence and their £130million midfield.
