Manchester United will take the Sunday at home against Everton. José Mourinho continues to rely on Romelu Lukaku but can’t count on the injured Marouane Fellaini. And that lies heavy on the stomach.
“For the interlandbreak there were virtually no an and we stood there well,” began Mourinho his argument. “Two weeks later I lose Dalot by injury to Portugal, will Fellaini injured back from Belgium and Alexis Sanchez are not fully fit from Chile returned. I forget someone? Ah yes, McTominay and Scotland, also all injured.”
And who is fit, performs well nor properly. Especially Romelu Lukaku, after his non-match last Tuesday against Juventus seriously taken under fire. The cannon of the Belgian striker is silent now, since the fifteenth of september and the profit (1-2) on the field of Watford. “Every match I have the feeling that it will come back for Romelu. And that day will come, I am sure. Then he will score and he will get his confidence again lifted. He will play against his ex-club Everton, because alternatives I have not. Zlatan? No, a return of Zlatan is not an issue. Ask him the question and he will get the same answers.”
