Romelu Lukaku: 'We will build on Burnley win'

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and manager Jose Mourinho Woodward has been held responsible for blocking the exit of Anthony Martial against the wishes of manager Jose Mourinho

United bounced back from defeats to Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham with a deserved 2-0 victory at Burnley, with Romelu Lukaku scoring both goals for the visitors.

Rashford had earlier won a penalty that was wasted by United midfielder Paul Pogba, who saw his effort saved by Joe Hart.

"I've done it for years but I've done it in a bigger squad", said Hart of battling on two fronts.

It does have to be said that he should have probably got at least a few more goals and got his hattrick in the game, but as long as he is getting into the positions to score the goals we can't really complain.

"That is why Fellaini played close to our defence, to stop the long balls, and I think this performance shows how we need to play football and we still can compete for the title".

As expected, some United fans protested against chief executive Ed Woodward by hiring a plane to carry a banner over the ground declaring him a "specialist in failure".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho arrives at court to testify on tax fraud charges in Pozuelo de Alarcon, near Madrid, Spain, November 3, 2017.

It means the 21-year-old will miss three games after the worldwide break and comes at a time when he is struggling to break into United's line-up.

Mourinho has "lost the confidence of a clique of United players": ReportAclique of Manchester United players have fallen out of favour with Jose Mourinho, according to the Daily Mail.

Mourinho claimed that Pogba will remain United's penalty taker, despite his miss, should he wish to remain on duty.

The Uruguay worldwide believes that Pogba could be swayed into leaving the Premier League in the near future as a way of joining a more competitive team both domestically and in Europe.

He told the BBC: "I don't know what happened. I'm hoping to repay that and give him what he wants from me".

Mourinho's job isn't thought to be under threat despite the poor start to the campaign, with United hoping to build on Sunday's victory over the Clarets after the global break.

Clearly unhappy, Rashford squared up to Bardsley and pushed his head towards the Burnley player's.

"We lost at home, the fans were incredible to the team, the team understood that the direction was good, the result was bad". "We started winning this match after Spurs".

"Today the fans were fantastic from the first minute, but Old Trafford is a moment to remember", he said.
