Manchester United 1-0 FC Rostov: Red Devils stars rated and slated

If you notice Jose Mourinho looking especially rough at his press conference this is why

If you notice Jose Mourinho looking especially rough at his press conference this is why

As for the tournament of the Europa League, so in the match in Rostov, Manchester United looked suppressed.

"Today the same and tomorrow we go with everything we have, and I think the fans will give us this little bit of extra energy". Indeed, if Mourinho really wants to achieve greatness during his debut campaign, he must win the competition that he once described as "not good" - the Europa League.

United's injury woes worsened on the 63-minute mark when Blind was forced off and Phil Jones came on as his replacement, with United more desperate for an opener than ever in order to settle any nerves. However, he managed to find his way back to Old Trafford, unlike numerous others who have left.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to return and Rostov losing both Aleksandr Gatskan and Timofei Kalachev to suspension, it will be a tough ask for the visitors to get anything from this one. Soslan Dzhanaev could return in goal but Vladimir Granat is unlikely to be available.

Jose Mourinho: "It's [Ibrahimovic's return] a big boost, but we never cry about who is and who isn't [out]".

"We had one gift and we thought one gift was enough".

Pirates hijack freighter off Somalia's coast
It came as a surprise to the global shipping industry as worldwide patrols had suppressed pirate hijackings for several years. But attacks fell sharply after ship owners tightened security and vessels stayed further away from the Somali coast.

Jose Mourinho's side came into the second leg having drawn 1 - 1 in Russian Federation but their wastefullness infront of goal nearly proved to be their downfall.

"We always aim high in everything we do here". The match starts at 21:05 on 16 March 2017. Four of those goals have been scored at Old Trafford.

And United also have a busy calendar still to complete thanks to their lengthy Europa League, FA Cup and EFL Cup runs this season, meaning any absence could be particularly damaging to their hopes of securing a Champions League place.

United had the first chance of the night within the opening five minutes when Ander Herrera's corner was met by Marcos Rojo's powerful header - forcing a save from Rostov goalkeeper Nikita Medvedev.

Yes - the match will be televised on BT Sport in the UK. Mourinho does favour the 4-2-3-1 formation but this just exposes Pogba and some of his better performances have come from when United lined up in a 4-3-3 formation.
