Man Utd: Romelu Lukaku is 'too often a pussy cat'

However the ability of his United side to reach those heights will depend on the ability of Lukaku, according to Martin Keown. Manchester United have a few players out as well, with the knee injuries to Marcos Rojo and James Wilson still keeping them out long term, as well as long waits off the pitch left for Luke Shaw and Ashley Young.

Mkhitaryan's pass freed Juan Mata and when the Spaniard's shot was blocked by West Ham goalkeeper Hart, he squared the ball to Lukaku, but the 24-year-old could not get a shot away. From clever flicks to gorgeous passes with a couple of superb tackles in-between, Pogba was everywhere today.

RED DEVILS: De Gea, Valencia, Blind, Bailly, Jones, Matić, Pogba, Mata (Fellaini 75), Mkhitaryan (Lingard 88), Rashford (Martial 79), Lukaku. Subs: Sakho 5, Rice 5, Cresswell 5.

The flying Hart then punched the ball off Lukaku's head at the far post, a split-second before the United striker clattered into Winston Reid, who needed treatment for the flying assault.

But there there was to be yet more Manchester misery for West Ham in the final three minutes as Mkhitaryan invited Martial to race behind the visitors' defence and calmly slot past the helplessly exposed Hart. When you come out on top it is an unbelievable feeling to know you are the best team in the country, and you have gone through all sorts of things along the way to win that. There have been plenty of reasons for United's league struggles; this year, however, everyone at the club will at least expect them to challenge for the title for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. Great from Pogba, bad from Hart.

The deal was not officially announced until after the game: Walker to the Brewers for a player to be named later. "I feel good. This type of usefulness will surely help the Brewers out as they try to catch the Chicago Cubs in the National League Central.

Anthony Martial has now been directly involved in more Premier League goals (27) since 2015/16 than any other Man Utd player. His ability to get the out of the defensive third so quickly could prove to be crucial for Mourinho's counter-attacking style, and should be given a chance to shine in the Premier League.
