EPL: Romelu Lukaku speaks on Pogba's penalty against Southampton

With Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba having one of the biggest player/manager fallouts in recent times at Manchester United, did the Portuguese tactician finally address the bad blood between them on the weekend?

In other Premier League action Saturday, Algerian star Riyad Mahrez scored league-leading Manchester City lone goal in a 1-0 away win over 12th-placed Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium. Solskjaer's men secured a late comeback in the game, courtesy a brace from Romelu Lukaku and a stunner from Andreas Pereira. Taking advantage of Luke Shaw backing off with his hands behind his back, the Southampton wing-back advanced a couple of paces before unleashing a ferocious shot that beat David de Gea from a good five yards outside the area.

United's challenge looked to have been made tougher when Alexis Sanchez was forced off early in the second half, but his replacement Diogo Dalot helped turn the game on its head. But players such as Lukaku and Marcus Rashford failed to provide the final flourish to breach Gunn's goal.

Pereira showed his strength to hold off challengers in midfield before slipping through an excellently-timed pass for Lukaku who finished clinically from 15 yards. Credit was still due to the striker for knowing where the goal was and shooting nearly immediately, and though Gunn was beaten for a third time, he did manage to keep out Pogba's stoppage-time penalty, awarded after Armstrong had fouled Rashford.


"We know what we're capable of", he said. "I don't want to speak about [that] for obvious reasons", he said. If he misses he misses, can he improve his penalties?

"I think they're running down the clock with Sanchez".

"They know they're part of a special club that can do something like this". I think he'll be gone in the summer - that's the reality.

"It's a very important win for us", he adds. Now draws on the road indicate that their bold, attacking approach to games is built on some naivety, as is the fact they have conceded the second most away goals in the Premier League.


"Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has gone into Man United and got some players working, got some players playing".

Cherries boss, Eddie Howe, repeatedly finds a way to dig his team out of a rut and they're certainly in one at present, despite the freaky Chelsea victory that followed a 2-0 home win against West Ham. The side is also hit by an injury crisis.

Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia were injured already, and Alexis Sanchez has now joined the list of casualties.
