Man United making life hard for themselves - Herrera

"In the first half Bournemouth was the best team by far and in the second half United were the best team by far".

After appearing to soak up the pressure well in the second half, it took until added time before United claimed the win despite a valiant defensive effort from the hosts, and will point to chances in the first half as to where they can improve going forward.

Manchester United are struggling to agree new contracts with important players including David de Gea and Anthony Martial as a outcome of Alexis Sanchez's significant wages.

United have endured a poor start to the season and they were outplayed in the first half, fortunate to reach half-time all square after Anthony Martial cancelled out Callum Wilson's opener.

They were played off the park by Bournemouth in the first half on Saturday afternoon, but a stoppage-time victor from Marcus Rashford earned another three points for Mourinho's men.

"The approach [last season] was much more defensive and with a much more defensive approach you can hide better your weaknesses", Mourinho said.

Manchester United star Anthony Martial is set to be tempted to stay at the club with a bumper new contract on the table.

Alexis Sanchez's massive wages at Manchester United is a stumbling block for the club as they try to extend David de Gea's stay at Old Trafford, according to the Mirror.

"I don't think he's at the point in his career where he should say he's a definite No.9 down the middle".

But while he admitted that task remains a work in progress, he believes United are showing the powers of recovery required to overcome setbacks and turn games around. "That is a fantastic quality for a team". "Against Everton we were good, but we need to be a team who performs well in the whole game".

Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku is not even in the squad for the match due to an injury picked up, but Jose Mourinho names Jesse Lingard among the substitutes.

"I think by the end of December, which is the end of the first half of the Premier League, I think we are not going to be in the position we are now".
