Mourinho: Lukaku can't be rotated without Ibrahimovic

Jose Mourinho's best achievement is inspiring two players everyone thought he would destroy

Jose Mourinho's best achievement is inspiring two players everyone thought he would destroy

Roy Hodgson would love to have Mourinho's problem with the Palace boss forced to go into the Old Trafford cash without a recognised striker after Christian Benteke was ruled out for six weeks with a knee problem.

France midfielder Pogba has not played since suffering a hamstring injury early in the Champions League victory over Basel on September 12, while Fellaini was absent after picking up an ankle problem during last Saturday's 1-0 win at Southampton.

"Without Zlatan, we can not rotate the striker, especially because Rashford is playing also in other positions", said Mourinho.

With 10 goals in his first nine games, Lukaku has led United to an unbeaten start to the season and they now sit joint-top of the Premier League alongside their bitter neighbours Manchester City.

Mourinho was also quizzed if he would like to have Lukaku rested during global duty, to which the tactician replied, "Belgium is Roberto's responsibility and it's his decision to play him or not to play him".

"So until the moment we have Zlatan we can not think about giving rest to our No. 9, the same way we give in other positions".

Fonda thanked her for the compliment, but said it was all down to good attitude, good posture , and taking care of herself . There's not much time ahead and I don't want to go out without opening my heart, talking, bearing my soul.

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, has already admitted his surprise at Romelu's goal scoring start to life at United and insisted the clinical forward's team work is far more important than climbing up the goalscoring charts. We can not do that.

"Since his first loan to West Bromwich Albion, he grabbed the opportunity with both hands, fighting for his evolution".

"It's Roberto's responsibility and is his decision to play him or not to play him".

"It is exciting times here and I want to be part of that success", he said.

"They can always be in finishing areas, in fact I want them to be, so if people like Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial score goals, I think it's just a natural outcome of the way we play".

"Of course now, Manchester United is a different level of expectation and he is coping well".
