Twitter reactions as Jose Mourinho defends himself on Marcus Rashford stance

Rashford urged to join Everton by Jamie Carragher

Manchester United are flat-out refusing to sell French forward Anthony Martial despite Jose Mourinho being less-than-convinced about the inconsistent wide man. Mourinho has played Martial for just 60 minutes so far this season and his only start was in that miserable 3-2 defeat to Brighton last month. When he's mad, you know he is mad.

Marcus Rashford's name was on everybody's lips this week but the youngster will not feature as he serves the first his three game suspension after the incident with Phil Bardsley at Turf Moor.

Watford are up next for Man United on Saturday, who have a ideal record with four wins out of four and could rub salt in the wounds by condemning Mourinho's men to yet another defeat this weekend.

"But what I like about him is he's not going to fake his emotions".

"I can imagine on Sunday I am going to be criticised for not playing Marcus but is not my fault, he's suspended", said the Portuguese, before embarking on an extended monologue to set out the numbers for those who were "a bit confused".

"Probably you should remind them he is suspended and can not play".

Interestingly, Rashford made 32 appearances under Mourinho in his first season for United, which is more than Ronaldo's 29 appearances at his first season at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford scored twice while on England duty, which prompted pundits to claim that he needs to leave in order to fulfill his potential.

Hurricane Florence brings flooding; mother, baby die after tree falls on home
Since issuing a mandatory evacuation order Wednesday, nearly all of the more than 2500 residents left the island. Coastal towns in the Carolinas were largely empty, and schools and businesses closed as far south as Georgia.

"People know a side from him which is he's a victor", Lukaku told BBC Sport.

"If you don't mind to lose a couple of minutes, I'm going to do something not for you but the United fans and I think I hold myself to the United fans and for them I am going to spend two minutes with you". "The only thing that is clear for me is that the player never - in all these days we are together - he never told me that he wants to leave".

"He was never ever out of a selection, so he knows and that's the most important thing".

A move to another club could provide more playing time but sticking at United will help him win silverware.

Jose Mourinho has claimed that he tripped himself up on goal at Wembley last Saturday in order to give the press something to write about.

Fellaini is in line to feature despite withdrawing from the Belgium squad with a back injury.

"Paul came back after the World Cup the week before we started the Premier League", Mourinho said.

"Contrary to some news, to some opinions, by the protocol point of view and according to our doctor, he will be free to play".
