FC Rostov Defender Explains How to Beat Jose Mourinho's Team

FC Rostov Defender Explains How to Beat Jose Mourinho's Team

United exited the FA Cup on Monday night as N'Golo Kante's strike condemned Mourinho's men to a 1-0 defeat against the Portuguese's former club Chelsea, but the scoreline was not the only thing to go against the Reds.

Martial, Luke Shaw and Bastian Schweinsteiger trained away from the main group, which included Ibrahimovic after missing the trip to Stamford Bridge through domestic suspension. So he is out of my mind. Mourinho elected to play a 3-5-2 formation, and although his side surrendered a lead on the night, a draw was a good result against a team that had beaten Bayern Munich and thrashed Ajax in Russian Federation this season. "He stays in the medical department", Mourinho added, meaning that the 31-year-old could've played in has last European outing in the famous red shirt as well as leaving his place in the upcoming England squad in even more doubt.

Between the Europa League and the FA Cup, Manchester United had a week to forget in the campaign for trophy success. A winning team needs balance and while Griezmann will solve one issue for United, it'll raise another issue for them.

The hosts' dominance continued as the half wore on but still they were unable to find a breakthrough, with Ibrahimovic being denied by the woodwork again when he smashed a fine hit back off the post after cutting into the box on 35 minutes.

Rostov weren't without their threat, either, and Sardar Azmoun tested the skills of Romero before coming off to be replaced by Aleksandr Bukharov.

The upcoming game on Thursday will be the second in the history of these teams. We played the last match without all of them and we didn't mention that.




What time does it start?

Henrikh Mkhitaryan of Manchester United (C) scores his team's first goal during the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 first leg match between FC Rostov and Manchester United at Olimp-2 on March 9, 2017 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia.

United have never lost to a Russian side on home soil in European competition, but three of those four games have ended all square (W1). Jose praised the work-ethic of his players and the incredible travelling fans, who were the only ones that could be heard singing and chanting throughout the match. Mata intercepted on halfway to get a counter-attack started before Ibrahimovic back-heeled Mkhitaryan's cross from the right into the lurking Spaniard's path to prod home.

Paul Pogba also came close after his shot was well saved by Medvedev, with United going into half-time frustrated at not taking advantage of their dominance.

Pogba is unlikely to wilt in the face of scrutiny that will again be rife when United line-up against Rostov on Thursday.

He tries all this Hollywood stuff in the middle of the park rather than where is matters and he only seems interested in firing his passes into Zlatan, so I wouldn't be surprised is somebody like Marouane Fellaini were to come in.
