Jose Mourinho confirms three Englishmen to start vs Liverpool

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho used the post-match press conference as an opportunity to confirm a few players who will start the clash against Liverpool this weekend.

Following the 2-1 loss to Valencia last night, many fans will feel none of those who started the fixtures deserve to play again.

United were dire, losing out on a priceless opportunity to top their group since Juventus also lost to Young Boys.

Starts were handed out to players who haven’t featured of late but none truly staked a claim in the monstrous upcoming derby.

Mourinho’s had a bit of a habit this season of revealing some of the players he expects will start the next match barring any injuries.

It’s difficult to claim any of Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard or Marcus Rashford don’t deserve to be on the team sheet particularly given their form of late.

Rashford has been fantastic, almost as good as the initial meteoric rise that saw him announce himself to the world.

Lingard’s mobility and movement are also difficult to find in any of his other attacking teammates while Young scored against Fulham just last weekend.

Their replacements in the match against Valencia didn’t provide them with any competition with Marcus even coming on to score to save some face.
