Manchester United v Chelsea: Select your combined XI

And Lukaku's showing up front drew some criticism from the two former Red Devils.

But, the arrival of Romelu Lukaku had already seen Rashford starting to be used as more of a rotation option and the signing of Alexis Sanchez in January seems to have pushed the academy graduate further down the pecking order, not good for the confidence of a young player. "When you play counter-attacking football, the ball has got to stick".

"He was so weak".

'You can't keep pointing the finger at Pogba, but the lad has got to do better'.

"When he gets his opportunities he has got to take it, otherwise he won't get many [further] opportunities [to impress] and he might sit for a while on the bench and not play".

Romelu Lukaku will return to one of his former clubs on Sunday when Manchester United host top-four rivals Chelsea in the pick of the Premier League ties this weekend.

"He had 38 touches tonight and 18 times he gave it away".

"With Lukaku in your team at the moment, the ball doesn't stick so the counter-attack doesn't happen".

Benching Lukaku would nearly merit the same uproar as Mourinho's decision to leave out Paul Pogba against Sevilla, but it would make far more sense.

While the Frenchman was introduced into the action in the 12th minute when Ander Herrera came off injured, Scholes believes there are real problems between player and manager. It's a big European away game and he doesn't play the position particularly well defensively.

However, United legend Keane has insisted that Pogba is a "really good player" and urged the France global to start bringing his personality onto the pitch.
