Jose Mourinho warns Man Utd over one transfer decision despite Chelsea win | Football | Sport


The Red Devils were not harmed on Sunday as they began their Premier League season with a 4-0 win over Chelsea.

Marcus Rashford bagged two with Anthony Martial and Daniel James also finding the net.

Lukaku was sold to Inter Milan on deadline day with Manchester United not bringing in a replacement for the Belgian.

And former boss Mourinho believes that could prove to be an issue against more defensive sides than Chelsea.

“I think they can [be consistent] when they are facing teams like Chelsea, I think they were too soft,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

“It’s difficult to qualify them, they [Chelsea] were not compact defensively, too much space to play, not enough aggression on the ball, the defensive line, the midfield, the attack, they were not compact.

“I think United will find it much more difficult to play against teams with low compact blocks.

“If the blocks are low blocks it will be really difficult for them without a pure striker.

“With high blocks who can press them higher and be more aggressive, in the Premier League we have very good teams who can do that who are not in the top six, I think it can be difficult.

“In this moment, I think they don’t have a reason to feel anything but positive. A 4-0 result against Chelsea in the debut of the season is an amazing result.

“It’s very important that the dressing room feels like they can play to be champions. It’s very important they have that feeling. “I think they will not be champions but they can obviously have a good season.”

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was pleased to see the way his forwards worked in the opening game of the season.

“The way we scored them was pleasing,” the Norwegian said.

“Marcus coming in off his left side, Anthony, four yards out, tapping one in after a cross.

“Of course, that means a lot for them and I think we’ve shown that we could do both ways: we can counter-attack and we can also score when it’s flooded with defenders.”
