Manchester United Football Club lost to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for the second time of the season last night, and were subsequently dumped out of the FA Cup. The loss would have hurt Jose Mourinho and his players, and one man, in particular, is getting some stick afterwards.

Manchester United Football Club unearthed an absolute gem of a footballer just over a year ago, in the form of Marcus Rashford. The young man from Wythenshawe was one of our top performers under Louis van Gaal, but it has been different this season.
As we all know, over the summer Manchester United completed one of the biggest free transfers in football history. Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined the Red Devils, after his Paris Saint-Germain contract wound down to it’s end. Already, the 35-year-old has had a brilliant impact on the club.
It was always going to be tough going out in Russia, and when the state of the pitch became evident, things looked even harder. However, Jose Mourinho’s men managed to come away with a 1-1 draw, which isn’t too bad when all things are considered.
Manchester United have had to balance their objectives very finely this season, with the club fighting it out on four different fronts until a fortnight ago. Obviously, after the EFL Cup final win, we’re now in three different competitions but it has definitely been tough for Jose Mourinho.
Manchester United have certainly looked like a team that are moving in the right direction again, with Jose Mourinho at the helm. Our Portuguese coach made some brilliant signings over the summer, and it’s fair to say he is making the most out of his strength in depth.
In all my years supporting Manchester United, I’ve never discussed a player who the home fans seem to dislike more than Marouane Fellaini. The much-maligned Belgian hasn’t been a favourite of the Old Trafford crowd ever since his arrival – and I don’t really get why.
It was just a little over twelve months ago when Marcus Rashford burst onto the scene in scintillating fashion. The talented striker scored twice on debut against FC Midtjylland, and since then the man from Wythenshawe has been a mainstay in the match day squad.
Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United will be hoping for a positive result out in Russia tomorrow evening, when the Red Devils take on FC Rostov for the first time in their history. The game was never going to be easy, as at this stage of the competition all the opposition is tough.
Manchester United Football Club have been very hit and miss this season, particularly in the Premier League. Jose Mourinho’s men have dropped far too many points in winnable home games and that is what could eventually cost them a place in the top four.
