Northampton Town 1-3 Manchester United | Goals; Revell, Carrick, Herrera, Rashford | REVIEW

Howson gives us his review of Northampton Town 1-3 Manchester United in the EFL Cup, we saw some great goals from United this evening. Jose now has some questions to ask himself. Is Rooney still an option?

Manchester United beat Northampton Town 3-1 at Sixfields Stadium on Wednesday evening, bouncing back from their three-match run of defeats, which puts them in a better position, albeit mentally ahead of their Premier League clash with Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday. Jose Mourinho and his United side have been the subject of many negative stories over the past few days, which again hits out at another manager in the limelight, which is a bit petty by the media who seem to use United as a meal ticket. United have not been the best team in the league, but they have certainly not been the worst either. Leicester are the current champions, languishing in eleventh place in the league, but there is no negativity there as it is what was expected and the stories will hardly bring the attention of the masses who love to read about the negativity at United. Shame they did not get more this evening.

United were down, but not out and this win will do a lot for confidence. Mourinho gave many fringe players a chance to show what they can do with Timothy Fosu-Mensah being singled out early in the match by disgruntled supporters if you could call them that. Some ‘fans’ seem to expect players who have not yet played this season to be ready to go, despite not having the match fitness required, or the experience of playing week in and week out, which certainly helps players find their feet. No, some fickle United fans seem to mock more than they celebrate based on the fact they know nothing about the players concerned, expect them to be ready to play, despite the fact they have not played this season, then moan when the player is not at his best. With Wayne Rooney, who has played the majority of matches, was not performing again (shock horror) yet still played the full match, not threatening one but, even from five-yards out.
