First Premier League Start For Obafemi Against Surprising Man United Team

Monday, 03 Dec, 2018

Michael Obafemi fed Armstrong inside the area and from a tight angle the Scottish global smashed the ball confidently past De Gea for his third goal in two league games. People keep talking about pressure on me because there is a perception that we should be doing better.

The 55-year-old is understood to have told the squad that United's slump isn't just his fault and questioned their professionalism and attitude.

Jose Mourinho admits he is not guaranteed a new signing in January and has warned that Manchester United can no longer wield their financial might over the rest of English football, Daily Mail reports. "Only centre-back we have available to play is Phil [Jones]".

Immediately after the game, Mourinho cited United's lack of "mad dogs" as the reason for their second successive draw in the Premier League, but thought one player brought a particular bite to their performance.

The United boss has become an increasingly isolated figure in recent weeks, detached from the players, who have struggled to accept his criticism and outspoken comments. So who is more powerful now?

He was one of the best players on the pitch, even though he did not record assist or a goal, which is really something considering he has been involved in just four goals since the start of last season. That is what playing Man United does to teams these days. "It is more hard to buy players of a high, high, high level".

And now the Chile star wants to quit the club and start fresh in Paris.

Despite being valued at more than £2.8 billion, Mourinho insists the club can not throw "crazy money" at potential signings and instead have to shop in what he calls "the second tier".

"Before the smaller clubs were nearly begging the big clubs: 'Get my best players".

"Which is, I need a right back and a left back". Buy my best player.

"It is more hard to make the team better and stronger with buying".

"The transfer market is very hard unless the clubs want to go to what I call insane numbers".

"I think that Rashford by and large is the only player in the Manchester United team that does that".
