Undervalued Manchester United winger Anthony Martial proving his worth

Argentine football legend Diego Maradona has claimed that current, Manchester United, gaffer Jose Mourinho is a better manager than his counterpart from Manchester City, Pep Guardiola.

He said: "I find it incredible to think that I should be thinking about that during a game where we are fighting for our lives and trying to win at home".

'These are players that are standing still and sometimes going backwards.' United return to action after the current worldwide break against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on November 24 (3pm).

José Mourinho has not shied away from using Rashford during his three years at Old Trafford, but has only given him five Premier League starts this season and refuses to give him 90 minutes in a central role.

The Portuguese watched Belgium's clash with Iceland where, according to the Evening Standard, he was at the game on Thursday night to watch Tottenham defender Toby Alderweirld.

United will definitely be without Luke Shaw, who is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season during the 3-1 defeat to Manchester City, while there are injury concerns over another six first-team regulars.

More than anything, United's players seem to be enjoying themselves again after a tough start, as Lingard admitted in the wake of the Juventus win.

Another player being linked with a move to Old Trafford is Memphis Depay, who was sold by United to Lyon.

Rooney played his 120th and final game in an England shirt against the US on Thursday, with the Three Lions winning 3-0 at Wembley in a game dedicated to his global career and charity foundation. That can be put down to Manchester United's poor finishing this term.

"They need to reinforce at the back especially centre backs, one or two", Berbatov told The Mirror. He's a young lad coming through, he's played in the under-19s, he's made a couple of substitute appearances for Southampton's first team and that's good.
