Manchester United can't rest Lukaku until Ibrahimovic is fit, says Mourinho

The Premier League title chasers stayed at the Lowry Hotel on Friday, before hosting Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in their weekend fixture.

Coping is what United are having to do when juggling domestic and European exertions.

Reflecting on the performance, Eamon Dunphy said: "The attitude from United was very, very good".

Manchester United thrashed an all-confident CSKA Moscow side 4-1 in Russian Federation and underlined their utter dominance once again this season.

Palace, meanwhile, are trying to avoid extending their own unwanted record of failing to score in each of their opening six matches but they were unlucky not to find the net in their last outing at Manchester City.

"We are humble, we know that the great teams of the Premier League we didn't play them yet, so we are calm, we follow our work".

The latter secured cult hero status during his time as Old Trafford as, along with his famous last-gasp victor against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final, he plundered 126 goals in 366 appearances. I can not, professionally speaking, say do this or do that.

On Saturday, Mkhitaryan was replaced shortly after the hour-mark by Jesse Lingard and United boss Jose Mourinho will now be hoping he does not pick up an injury while on worldwide duty with Armenia.

Not that Mourinho wished to be seen to be issuing Martinez with instructions.

The Portuguese added after a trip to Russian Federation in midweek: "He had lots of freedom and lots of support and quality around him too and I am happy".

Unlike this time last season, Martial, outstanding in the 4-1 Champions League victory over CSKA Moscow on Wednesday, is in the United manager's good books. Of course, it's not just the £75 million man who's getting it done for the Red Devils. Juan Mata opened the scoring inside three minutes and Marouane Fellaini netted either side of halftime. United now look like they can compete to win the big trophies.
