Concern for Man Utd as Raiola plots Pogba return to Juventus

Concern for Man Utd as Raiola plots Pogba return to Juventus

Jose Mourinho will be eager to prove that the result against Manchester City before the worldwide break was only a blip, when Manchester United play hosts to a struggling Crystal Palace side at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has suggested what has been key to United goalkeeper David De Gea receiving criticism in Spain of late is Iker Casillas expressing his desire to make a comeback with the national team.

A third of the way into an entirely uninspiring first half where United started brightly but faded as quickly as the winter sun, it was Palace who had the best chance.

The Premier League season resumes following the global break with Manchester United hosting Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Pogba is said to be keen to leave Manchester United and has even told his former Juventus team-mates he wants to return to Italy. We don't seem to be getting the best out of him, however, regular starts could help his growth.

5 - The United manager did not mess around with his substitutions and was quick to throw on Marcus Rashford, Marouane Fellaini and Alexis Sanchez early in the second half, but it can not be a coincidence that so many of his attackers are not performing; for that, the manager must take responsibility.

The Eagles inched into 15th with the point and can now look forward to a more straightforward run of fixtures with fresh optimism.

Mourinho appeared downbeat after a lacklustre performance made a mockery of his pre-match target of United climbing into the top four by the end of the year. "I believe in his abilities". And when we talk about Luke Shaw, about Martial, about Lingard, about Marcus Rashford, we're talking about boys with great potential but who still are lacking - a word I can't say but you like to say a lot - having that [courage]. Is he ready to play three in a row in the same week?

"I don't know the evolution of the deal for the contract", said Sarri.

'I just don't think it's right for a football manager to be doing that. And I try to make them motivated and to make them motivated that I can not select the same all of the time.

"I'm happy to extend my time with Chelsea".
