The win over Brighton is enough for Jose Mourinho to reassure United fans. And he did this even though MU’s gameplay has not really prospered. In fact, Jose Mourinho’s students entered the determination and repeatedly cornered the opponent in the first 30 minutes of the first half.
However, after Lukaku’s goal, they fell back and took the initiative. He gave way to the opponent. It took until 87 minutes for Matic to score the winner for Old Trafford.
The Portuguese tactician seemed to want to assert that he was always right. And his play will still be so before the scrutiny of the British media for him.
The ineffective performance since joining Old Trafford is a condition for Sanchez to sit out in the match against Brighton. Obviously, Mourinho did that. He replaced Sanchez with Mata and MU had more sharp attack solutions.
Besides, Lukaku plays more and more progressive and is a rare bright spot in the Reds squad recently. The Belgian striker always played aggressively, enthusiastically and especially trying. Lukaku’s deadlock goal is very important in the context that MU is gradually going into an ineffective trail.
On the Matic side, the Serbian continued to show his bravery despite the home team losing the initiative to the opponent. Calm and precision of Matic is always necessary in the context that Mourinho needs a person to regulate the pace of the game.
The goals set to win 2-0 at 87 minutes by midfielder is the end of all efforts of Brighton. However, the face that Jose Mourinho teachers and students show is not enough to make the fans satisfied.
Obviously, the impression of the practicality that Mourinho brings is very bold through the direction of the players. They actively gave the game to the opponent at the beginning of the second half.
