Manchester United still in for hard season despite good form Jose Mourinho

Antonio Valencia of Manchester United during the Premier League match between Burnley FC and Manchester United at Turf Moor

The Chilean started because he did not play in the Uefa Champions League win at Young Boys on Wednesday.

Given he had not played midweek, tiredness can not be the cause and Jose Mourinho did not look happy with his player before bringing him off. It was Sanchez's ball into the box which was headed away by Wolves captain Conor Coady, which Paul Pogba flicked into the path of Fred.

Let's take a look at why Manchester United could only muster a point from the game.

"To play for Manchester United is hard enough for a kid who is 19 years old, coming from another country and after an important injury and surgery".

"I want him in this process of adaptation to play totally fresh, so he's not playing tomorrow", said the manager. Sanchez shook his head at the wasted effort.

Ferguson, who managed United for 27 years before retiring in 2013, was on hand to see Brazilian worldwide Fred score his first goal for the club since signing from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer.

Sanchez scored 15, 11 and 21 goals during his three seasons in Barcelona.

But it was United who grabbed the lead, against the run of play.

The World Cup victor can flit in and out of games and today was no different - but his contribution for Fred's goal was special.

Manchester United are coming into the fixture on the back of a three-game winning streak in all competitions.

"Now all of a sudden I'm tentatively backing United to win, that's a testament to how far Wolves have come. It's more about the moment and the momentum, like you like to call it, is very important in the positive and negative way".

Football fans and English media pundits did not hold back on the former Barcelona winger.

"Not a good performance, not a good result". They had it and we didn't.

"Wolves, by the way they faced the game, I think they deserve it".

The rumours have only been heightened following reports from The Mirror that the Spanish giants plan to watch every game the Frenchman plays from now until the end of the season, before launching a bid for the World Cup star next summer.
