"We're talking about Luke Shaw, Martial, Lingard, Rashford - young, big potential, but at the end of the day it results in the word I can not say, but you use it a lot here.character, personality, they lack a little".

The leaky defense has allowed 21 goals, the fifth most in the Premier League.

"But I also know until the end of December we have eight Premier League matches to play, and with eight matches we are speaking about 24 points".

"Frustrated", United boss Jose Mourinho told the BBC. Mourinho was frustrated that his side let Palace breathe when they did not have the ball.
