Paul Pogba gets Juventus gift bag from Juan Cuadrado

Manchester United's striker Romelu Lukaku wins a header during the English FA Cup final football match between Chelsea and Manchester United at Wembley stadium in London

Romelu Lukaku will come under close scrutiny when he faces former club Everton on Sunday, looking to kick start a season that is rapidly turning into a disappointment for him and his Manchester United team alike. Their defence is equally miserable and is the culprit of conceding 16 goals.

Attack: Juan Mata may find himself back on the bench this weekend while Alexis Sanchez has once again been ruled out after Mourinho confirmed the Chilean worldwide isn't match fit after missing the last two matches with an injury he picked up during the global break.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Neville said, "United are tenth in the Premier League". A player who possess such obvious ability, but too frequently demonstrates an inconsistency not just over the course of a season, but throughout the course of a single match.

'I'm not surprised he's turned down a new deal, ' Neville told SkySports.

"What will that achieve?" They play away at Bournemouth the following Saturday before a second match with Juventus, away in Turin. "I will prepare during the week they don't have doubts". From that point of view, at this moment in time, it doesn't surprise me at all that he's turned it down'.

"Tonight they came up against a side that was far superior".

And Mourinho was clear that Italy defenders Chiellini and Bonucci made the difference against United, who have won just one of their last seven games in all competitions.

"But sacking Jose is not the answer", added Phil. When you lose to Juve and they had 70 per cent possession of the ball at Old Trafford.

Lukaku's claim that he is still integrating himself into the United line-up, 15 months after his arrival at Old Trafford, seems a dubious one. It was not surprising that the club would break the bank to make him a Red Devil again.

However, Sharpe has criticized Lukaku's recent decline in form and says it might be useful for Mourinho to give the striker a rest.
