Romelu Lukaku is 'untouchable', says Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho silenced his critics yesterday as Manchester United beat Tottenham 1-0

Asked by reporters who he thought the Eagles' most unsafe player was, Bailly said: "There are various players but, in my mind in particular, Pizzi, because he played at Espanyol with me".

"Romelu is one of the players who should be untouchable in terms of respect from everyone", he was reported as saying on the club website yesterday ahead of the Champions League Group A match with bottom club Benfica today.

"He is playing well and yes I have to protect my players and Romelu always deserve that because what he does for the team is fantastic and to play football for a striker".

Manchester United: David de Gea 7 (out of 10), Matteo Darmian 6, Eric Bailly 6, Chris Smalling 6, Daley Blind 6, Scott McTominay 7, Nemanja Matic 7, Juan Mata 6, Jesse Lingard 6, Anthony Martial 6, Romelu Lukaku 7.

"The fans are the fans and I am also told the fans pay for their tickets and they are free to express themselves the way they want to express themselves", Mourinho said at United's training base. "I think the manager decided that Daley needed to shoot".

Judge set to rule on suspension of Dallas Cowboys RB Elliot
The NFL suspended Elliott on August 11 following allegations that he had abused his ex, Tiffany Thompson, in July 2016. On Tuesday, the NFLPA announced its intent to file an emergency motion seeking an injunction from a 2nd Circuit court.

The youngest goalkeeper in Champions League history is now the youngest player to score an own goal in the competition too.

A fortnight ago the 18-year-old became the youngest goalkeeper to ever play in the competition - a historic night that ended in embarrassment after he misread a Marcus Rashford free-kick and carried it over the line.

Romelu Lukaku has not scored for five games.

Manchester United did not make out of the group stage the last time they were in the Champions League under Louis van Gaal in the 2015/16 season.

And he added that he will resist the temptation to rest players ahead of a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on Sunday.

When Raisa realized that her friend was becoming weak, she shared a home with Gomez. "And I asked what's wrong", Raisa said. While her illness was at a "life or death" point before the transplant, Gomez's health has now been transformed.

"We played well. To play well against a very good team feels even better".

"Our main aim is to finish first in the group".

Benfica deserved to be at least level with a pedestrian United, though like in latter stages of the first half, they began to flag.

Goals Manchester United have scored after the 80-minute mark this season. "Nobody here thinks about Chelsea".
