lol united. that's what happens when you have murinho as a coach, highly overrated mid, a shit player who doesn't know how to play football other than elbowing others, and no good defenders.

murinho should add shweinsteiger to his plans and give him the chance than this shit fellani. and mkhitaryen should start as a cam while rooney, ibra should start up front with either martial or rashford.

This is the team I'll be putting up.

4 3 3

def - shaw, valencia.. other than that no great cb's in utds line up. absoulte shit in set pieces and can't even defend properly.

mid - schweinsteiger as the CDM. He can control the game very well. Can pretty much be the creator of the attack. And will hold the ball other than giving the other team chances. And can play as a cb when utd are up front. good on set pieces too. 2 CMs. Mkhitaryen & Pogba. Both should be given free roles. I don't like pogba that much and still consider him as very much overrated, I actually don't know what exat position he should play in atm. lol! but mkhitaryen is another deal. He should at least play behing ibra in a cam role.

attack - ibra at the center, rooney from the right & martial or rashford from the left.

murinho should have bought good world class defenders tbh

Watford 3-1 Man Utd: Late Hornets double sinks United



Juan Zuniga scored 53 seconds after coming on and Troy Deeney netted a stoppage-time penalty as Watford beat Manchester United 3-1 on Sunday, condemning Jose Mourinho's men to a third consecutive defeat.

A dramatic opening period saw Odion Ighalo miss an open goal for Walter Mazzarri's side, before Paul Pogba struck the crossbar from long-range for the visitors in the Premier League clash at Vicarage Road.

Etienne Capoue then put Watford ahead with his fourth goal of the season, but Marcus Rashford – handed his first Premier League start of the campaign – equalised after the break.

However, that would not prevent United from following up defeats to Manchester City and Feyenoord with another loss, Zuniga capping a great team move just moments after coming on and Deeney putting the icing on the cake from the spot.

United's latest reverse leaves them six points adrift of the early Premier League leaders, Pep Guardiola's City, and puts Mourinho under immediate pressure to turn their results around.

Watford, meanwhile, now have two consecutive victories, setting Mazzarri up superbly for a favourable run of fixtures in the weeks ahead.

Having won their first game of the season against West Ham last week, Watford started on the front foot, with Deeney inches away from tapping in Sebastian Prodl's header at the far post.

The hosts were even closer in their next attack, Ighalo guilty of a dreadful miss after Prodl's long ball caused a mix-up between United goalkeeper David de Gea and Chris Smalling. That left the Nigeria striker with an open goal, but he somehow failed to find the target.

Deeney's header was then superbly kept out by a flying De Gea, while United's first menacing attack saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic lash a good opening into the side-netting after a cross from Rashford deflected into his path.

A thrilling first half continued as Pogba collected Marouane Fellaini's pass and curled a dipping effort from 30 yards against the bar.

But the breakthrough came at the other end in the 34th minute when Martial – who had previously received a nasty knock to the head - was dispossessed by Miguel Britos in a dangerous area, with referee Michael Oliver ignoring United claims for a foul.

That allowed Daryl Janmaat to race clear down the right and cut back for Capoue to beat De Gea with a low, first-time finish and the visitors' misery was compounded by a stricken Martial having to be replaced by Ashley Young immediately after the goal.

United were initially sluggish in pursuit of an equaliser, but they struck back in the 62nd minute through their first shot on target.

Rashford was involved in the build-up - playing a one-two with Ibrahimovic - and when the Swede's cross deflected off Valon Behrami, the 18-year-old pounced to direct his shot under Heurelho Gomes from three yards out.

United came close to claiming all three points when Gomes got down impressively to claw away Ibrahimovic's powerful header from Fellaini's searching delivery, but there was a dramatic sting in the tail.

A slick Watford passing sequence saw Nordin Amrabat and Roberto Pereyra combine to set up Zuniga and he swept home on 83 minutes.They were not done there either, with another substitute - Isaac Success - helping Zuniga to win a penalty under Fellaini's challenge in stoppage-time.

Deeney took it and powered home to delight the Vicarage Road crowd as the home side snapped a nine-game losing streak in league matches against United.

Mourinho blames referee and bad luck for Manchester United loss



Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho felt the referee and bad luck played a part in his team's defeat to Watford, but also accepted their performance could have been better.

Goals from Etienne Capoue and Marcus Rashford had the match level at 1-1 going into the final seven minutes, when a strike from substitute Juan Zuniga and a penalty from captain Troy Deeney earned the home side a 3-1 victory at Vicarage Road.

United now sit six points behind early Premier League leaders Manchester City, and Mourinho has lost three consecutive competitive games in a single season for the first time since he was in charge of Porto in 2001-02.

The frustrated Portuguese felt Anthony Martial had been fouled in the build-up to Watford's first goal from Capoue and suggested his side were on top when Watford struck twice in the latter stages.

He told BT Sport: "In the first half for about 25 to 30 minutes we didn't play well and that is something that we can control. We can improve, we can work on it.

"Then the referee and the linesman's mistake is not under my control. I can't do anything to improve it. That [the Martial incident] is an obvious situation.

"I think there is no debate, no controversy. I think that is an obvious situation, like it was obvious last week against Man City but it's something I don't control and I cannot even be critical of.

"In the eyes of everyone - it doesn't matter whether you are a Manchester United fan or a Watford fan or whatever - it was obvious.

"In the second half we were much better. We get the draw [equaliser] and after that we were the team. Gomes makes a phenomenal save and the lucky moments again are not something we can control.

"We cannot control the referee, we cannot control the lucky moments. We had that period where, in the stadium, everyone was thinking about Manchester United going on to score a goal and win the game."The only thing we can control is our individual and collective mistakes like for their second goal."

Mourinho went on to describe the decision not to award a foul on Martial following Miguel Britos' challenge as "ridiculous" and reiterated his belief that factors outside of his control played a key part in the loss.

He said to BBC Sport: "The first factor depends on ourselves, it relates to our individual mistakes and collective mistakes as individual players and as a team. We have to improve something, it is in our hands.

"The second factor is the referee and I can't control their mistakes. The story of the game is the result and not the ridiculous situation of the first goal.

"The third factor is luck, we didn't have it. We were the best team when we lost."
He addded: "We started the season very well and had good results. I feel the first moment we had a defeat, a difficult situation, some of the boys are having a bit of difficulty coping with the negativity.

"You see Ashley Young, his mentality, the happiness and confidence he brought to the game is something more players need to have."

Crystal Palace 4-1 Stoke City: Pardew's men heap more misery on struggling Potters



Crystal Palace plunged Stoke City deeper into crisis by inflicting a 4-1 thumping at Selhurst Park that leaves Mark Hughes' side with just one point from their first five games of the Premier League season.

James Tomkins marked his first start for Palace with the opening goal on Sunday, just two minutes and 14 seconds before club captain Scott Dann netted the second.

Stoke settled but never really threatened in attack, and two more quick-fire goals in the second half secured Palace a second win of the campaign.

James McArthur scored the third for Alan Pardew's side, courtesy of a deflection off Geoff Cameron, before Andros Townsend capped a match-winning performance by netting a brilliant solo goal 15 minutes from time, with Marko Arnautovic's injury-time strike a mere consolation for the visitors.

Palace, who beat Middlesbrough 2-1 in their previous outing, had not secured back-to-back wins in the league since December 2015, but with Townsend and fellow winger Wilfried Zaha providing a constant threat down the wings they look capable of troubling many opponents.

Hughes, meanwhile, will need to engineer a drastic improvement in his defence if Stoke are to avoid falling far short of last season's ninth-place finish.

The Potters had started promisingly enough with Bruno Martins Indi playing Jonathan Walters in on goal with a lovely threaded pass after five minutes, only to find the striker had strayed offside.

But Stoke's lack of confidence at the back was evident as soon as Townsend and Zaha began to attack them down the flanks, and the latter won a free-kick when he was bundled over by Arnautovic.

Townsend looped the free-kick towards the far post and, when Walters failed to deal with the threat, Tomkins nipped in and bundled the ball past Shay Given.

Palace continued to press and were rewarded just two minutes later when Jason Puncheon's corner was powered home by the head of skipper Dann, who was allowed a free header by Stoke's defenders.

Stoke eventually managed to stem the flow of Palace attacks but midfield playmakers Bojan and Arnautovic were given no space or time on the ball to create chances for the visitors, who trailed by two at the break.

Ryan Shawcross aimed a header on target from Bojan's corner early in the second half that Steve Mandanda saved easily, as Stoke looked brighter immediately after half-time.

Palace continued to create chances and Dann would have scored his second goal of the game had Bojan not hooked his header off the line following Puncheon's corner.Townsend's relentless industry down the flanks created a chance that Zaha spurned from close range, while at the other end Bojan flashed a shot just wide.

Chances for Martins Indi and Shawcross went begging for Stoke before McArthur picked up a poor headed clearance and fired a shot that took a wicked deflection off Cameron on its way past Given to make it 3-0 in the 71st minute.

Four minutes later, Townsend was rewarded for an all-action performance when he ran from inside his own half and jinked past Joe Allen before applying a finish that will have caught the eye of England manager Sam Allardyce to make it 4-0.

Stoke squandered a number of late chances before finally getting a consolation when Wilfried Bony fed Arnautovic and the Austrian slammed it past Mandanda from outside the area. Impressive as the strike was, it came far too late to save Hughes' charges, who shipped four goals for the third time in five league games this season.

Southampton 1-0 Swansea: Austin powers Saints past Swans



A second-half strike from substitute Charlie Austin secured Southampton a deserved first Premier League win of the season as they beat Swansea City 1-0 at St Mary's.

Claude Puel's men had missed a string of chances prior to Austin rifling home his third goal in two games, the striker having struck a brace against Sparta Prague in the Europa League on Thursday.

The former QPR man had also rattled the bar moments before breaking the deadlock, while Lukasz Fabianski had frustrated the hosts with a string of fine saves.

The victory, which lifts Southampton out of the bottom three, was their third in succession over the Welsh side and the clean sheet they kept was their first in 17 games.Swansea, meanwhile, rarely threatened to earn what would have been their first league triumph since the opening day of the season.

And that search may be set to go on with games against Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool next on the agenda for Francesco Guidolin's men.

Kyle Naughton fired in the opening shot of the game after six minutes, drawing a regulation save from Fraser Forster, but it was the hosts who went on to look the more likely as the half progressed.

A fine burst down the right from Nathan Redmond yielded an opening for Shane Long but the Republic of Ireland striker saw his shot blocked by Fabianski, and the Swansea goalkeeper was also equal to a well-struck free-kick from Dusan Tadic after 20 minutes.

Virgil van Dijk then climbed well to meet a Steven Davis corner, but he failed to get any power in his header and Fabianski saved easily.However, it was Redmond who was guilty of wasting Southampton's best chance moments before the break.

Another clever ball from the lively Tadic released the former Norwich man who found himself with only Fabianski to beat, but blazed his shot wildly over the bar.

The Saints continued to press early in the second half and came within inches of breaking the deadlock on 48 minutes.Redmond played in Long, but although the Irishman's angled shot beat the advancing Fabianski, Naughton was on hand to slide in and clear off the line.

And Southampton were denied again seconds later when Redmond was rather harshly adjudged to have been offside before providing a cut-back which Long stroked into the net.

Long was rather surprisingly replaced by Austin on 54 minutes despite having been a thorn in Swansea's side throughout, although Austin did almost score with what would have been his first touch, just failing to convert a fine cross from Ryan Bertrand.

The 27-year-old was then denied by the crossbar on 62 minutes, but made amends shortly afterwards when he controlled another teasing cross from Redmond and rattled a fierce shot past Fabianski.

Puel's side were guilty of sitting back after going ahead and Swansea may well have snatched an underserved point had Foster not pulled off a fine save to deny Gylfi Sigurdsson four minutes from time.

Tottenham 1-0 Sunderland: Kane steers Spurs past Sunderland



Harry Kane's second-half strike gave Tottenham a 1-0 victory over Sunderland at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino's side were relentless in their quest to bounce back from Wednesday's false start in the Champions League against Monaco at Wembley, although 19 first-half shots amid home comforts at White Hart Lane went unrewarded.

Son Heung-min hit the post before the break and shot wastefully into the side-netting afterwards, but Kane found the breakthrough from close range – the England striker's second goal in as many league matches following a nine-game drought for club and country.

A shambolic contribution from Papy Djilobodji led to Spurs' winner and undermined a tireless defensive effort from Sunderland, although their prospects of an equaliser appeared slim even before Adnan Januzaj's avoidable 90th-minute red card.

David Moyes is the latest manager who has failed to shift the north-east club's tendency to start at a snail's pace and, with one point from five matches, they are one of two winless sides in the top flight along with bottom club Stoke City.

By contrast, Spurs lie third behind the other two undefeated teams after five matches – Manchester City and Everton – although the sight of Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier and Kane limping off during the close stages soured Pochettino's afternoon.

Dembele was back in the Tottenham side after a six-game domestic suspension, while Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela dropped to the bench following the 2-1 Champions League loss in midweek.

Didier Ndong and Jason Denayer made full debuts for Sunderland, although the latter was only included after Moyes lost full-back Patrick van Aanholt to injury during the warm-up.

Moussa Sissoko flashed an angled fourth-minute shot wide on his first Spurs start, while the hosts had early joy down the flanks and Jordan Pickford made a sharp reaction save to deny Kane after Son whipped in a dangerous ball from the left.

The opening exchanges suggested Sunderland keeper Pickford should bed in for a busy afternoon and he was well placed to hold Toby Alderweireld's header from a 15th-minute corner after turning a Kane effort behind.

Jermain Defoe chased a Pickford clearance to call Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris into action midway through the half before Son and Sissoko had shots blocked and Victor Wanyama dragged one wide on a frantic Tottenham attack.

The lively Son cut inside Denayer, who was enduring a tough baptism at right-back, to thud a shot against the base of Pickford's near post in the 39th minute and Sunderland nervily survived a flurry of corners.

Remarkably, the visitors should have led at the break but Steven Pienaar picked out Kyle Walker on the goalline from Januzaj's cutback.Spurs were back on the front foot in the second period and Son should have done better than lashing into the side-netting after Dembele released him in the area.

When the goal arrived for Kane it was practically gift-wrapped, with Dele Alli knocking down a Walker cross that Djilobodji made a complete hash of clearing to leave the England man with a tap-in.

Pickford, who hesitated under the high ball when Spurs broke through, got down well to his left to deny Alli, with Dier firing wide from the resulting set-piece.

Sunderland's toothlessness in attack meant they were ill-placed to take advantage of Tottenham's unfortunate late flurry of injuries, with Januzaj's second booking for a late challenge on Ben Davies completing a forgettable trip to the capital.
