Marouane Fellaini came on to "close the door" on a 1-0 United lead only to concede the penalty that led to the eventual 1-1 draw at Goodison Park on Sunday.

It was turn back the clock day as Marouane Fellaini was once again the toast of the Goodison Park faithful. Unlike when he starred for David Moyes at Everton, today's cheers came for a massive mistake from the big Belgian in a Manchester United uniform that allowed Everton to draw even. It's hard to say the result was deserved as Everton struggled to create chances for most of the afternoon. They did finish strong irrespective of the penalty and it was enough to earn them a solid point.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan got a rare start against Everton but it didn't make a great deal of difference as United could only muster a draw at Goodison Park.

Manchester United were the better team for most of the match without actually being particularly good. It wasn't a very fluid affair but it was one that the Red Devils had the better of for most of the match. In the early going United had more possession and the better of the few chances on offer with Zlatan scoring just before halftime to give Jose Mourinho's men a 1-0 lead despite little contribution worth mentioning from Mkhitaryan. They kept the lead until late substitution Marouane Fellaini fouled Idrissa Gueye in the box leading to a Leighton Baines equalizer from the spot. United continue to fall further and further off the pace.

Manchester United have beaten off Premier League opposition like Arsenal and Chelsea to sign Dutch 16 year old Millen Baars from Ajax.

Baars left Ajax in spite of being made captain of the B1 side this season. Baars arrives at Old Trafford having spent 9 years in the academy at Ajax, which recently produced other United prospects like Timothy Fosu-Mensah. Baars has already featured for the Red Devils' Under 16 team and will be eligible for Under 18 competition from January.

Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw looks to be a doubt for the club's Gameweek 14 clash with Everton at Goodison Park.

Shaw started Wednesday night's 4-1 drubbing of West Ham at Old Trafford but was replaced at half time after limping off the pitch. Daly Blind replaced him that night and now looks to be in line to make his first league start in over a month. This minor issue looks like it will sideline him or at least reduce him to limited minutes at Everton. However, Shaw is unlikely to be starting 100% consistently in the near future as Mourinho is trying to reintroduce him to the side slowly in order to avoid aggravating recently sustained problems.

Anthony Martial was dropped from the squad for the Europa League match against Feyenoord and the PL clash with West Ham by Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho but he returned on Wednesday with a brace against the Hammers in the EFL Cup.

The young French international's return was down to the fact that he was "working harder" according to Mourinho. All this points towards what we already knew, Martial is not viewed as a key player in the current regime. However, Mourinho has opined that Martial's brace will spur him on to continue working hard to continue reaping the rewards and getting game time.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that Bastian Schweinsteiger does not have to leave the club in the upcoming January transfer window.

The World Cup winning former German international had been ostracised from Mourinho's first team plans up until his reappearance as a substitute against West Ham in the ELF Cup on Wednesday - his first competitive minutes since the new manager arrived in the summer. Schweinsteiger had been training with the United reserves and Under 23s until October until he was brought back to first team training to make up the numbers. Mou also admitted that United did try to sell him in the summer. However, the midfielder has 18 months left to run on his contract and may suddenly be tempted to stay and fight for his place one last time at the highest level before a long-speculated move to the MLS. Mourinho did hint that any future role for Basti would be as a rotation option at best.

Manchester United delivered a rare performance to be proud of against West Ham in the EFL Cup quarter final tonight running out deserved 4-1 winners.

The game couldn't have started much better for the Red Devils with Zlatan Ibrahimovic netting within 2 minutes. The Swede clipped in early before Fletcher drew the Hammers back level again. Martial and Mkhitaryan, making a rare start together, combined for the second with the young Frenchman powering in from his teammates pass into the bottom corner. He also added the third, finishing off a good team move and Valencia's cross before Ibra capped off the performance in injury time with their fourth. Rooney and Mkhitaryan, while not actually getting goals, were instrumental in United's attacking play against a near full strength West Ham. The chances of the Armenian finally returning to the PL starting XI look all the more likely as Rooney will now be suspended for Sunday after getting his fifth yellow of the year.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been charged with improper conduct by the FA.

The charge relates to an incident which occurred during his side's frustrating 1-1 draw at Old Trafford with West Ham in the Premier League in Gameweek 13. Mou reacted badly after Paul Pogba was cautioned for diving after a challenge by Mark Noble. The manger kicked out and struck plastic bottles to show his disapproval for the decision. Match referee Jon Moss sent the 53 year old to the stands for the second time this season. Last time this happened was against Burnley on October 29th, and Mourinho was punished with a one match ban and an £8,000 fine. Due to this being his second indiscretion of this sort this term, the punishment will be decided by a commission whether he accepts or denies the charge.

Jose Mourinho was sent off as Manchester United drew 1-1 with West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Manchester United got off to slow start as West Ham struck after just two minutes through Diafra Sahko. However, United responded and leveled the match through Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the 21st minute. Meanwhile, the match took another interesting turn as Jose Mourinho was sent off just minutes later--for kicking a water bottle--after Paul Pogba was booked for simulation. Despite Manchester controlling the majority of possession, the home side needed a late denial from David De Gea on Ashley Fletcher to ensure points. The draw means the Red Devils have just 20 points after 13 matches, while they sit above Everton thanks to a loss today for the Toffees. This sets up a vital match for Manchester United with Everton next weekend, which will see them without their suspended manager.

Ostracised Manchester United winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan was given a rare chance to impress by manager Jose Mourinho which he grasped with both hands on Thursday.

It was a story that the Armenian was included in the travelling party for the game, not to mind the fact that he started the game! Winning man of the match certainly sent a message to his manager. This was only his second start for United since signing for £26 million in the summer from Dortmund. He played in a central role behind Ibra, linking well with the rest of the team. His outstanding moment in the game came in a long run in which he beat many of the weaker opposition's players before seemingly being fouled by the last defender however this wasn't given. He had six shots tonight which was the joint most for the game, and the United faithful showed their appreciation with a standing ovation when substituted with Rooney in the 82nd minute.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney gave a fine performance as the Red Devils overcame Feyenoord 4-0 at Old Trafford.

Rooney opened the scoring to become the club's leading scoring player in European competition with a composed clip over the flailing onrushing Brad Jones. He then slid Mata through with a devine assist which he disguised as a shot before it transpired to be a cut across the goal for his Spanish compatriot to slide in.Brad Jones was on the score sheet for all the wrong reasons when he got his feet wrong - turning in Ibra's low cross at the near post. Lingard added injury time gloss to the performance to give Mou his biggest win at United manager and the result puts progression in the competition in United's own hands.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said he hopes to see Michael Carrick sign a contract extension in the near future.

The veteran midfielder has started the last two Premier League games, earning praise for stabilising the central midfield. After rumors of a potential winter exit with his contract up in the summer, Carrick could now have a future under Mourinho. Said the manager: "He is such a fantastic player and it is a pity, I always loved him, but instead of being his manager when he was 25 I am his manager when he is 35. We have a good understanding. We know when he can play. We know when he is ready and when he needs a rest. I am still having Michael Carrick and probably for one more season."

Belgian club Genk's 19 year old starlet Leon Bailey wants assurances that he'll get game time before truly considering a mooted move to Manchester United.

The Jamaican who also qualifies to play for Belgium has been under surveillance from United scouts this term according to reports. He is most comfortable on the left wing but can also play off the right. He has 6 goals in 18 league games so far this season. Bailey joined Marcus Rashford in the nominations for the coveted European Golden Boy award back in October but was also beaten to the crown by Renato Sanches of Bayern. Genk's technical director has already acknowledged that it will be almost impossible for the club to keep the services of the winger if the right bid comes in January.
