Jose Mourinho makes the team selection everyone has been calling for

Huge call

Patrick McCarry

Now we’re in the thick of it.

Jose Mourinho has used Manchester United’s match-day programme notes to issue a rallying cry to supporters.

United bounced back from three defeats on the spin to defeat Northampton Town 3-1 in the EFL Cup. Mourinho has called on United fans to get behind the faltering team as they seek the win that will get them right back among the league leaders.

Ahead of the 12:30pm kick-off against the Premier League champions Leicester City, Mourinho has made some big selection calls.

Following a drop off in form, United captain Wayne Rooney is named on the United bench. Marouane Fellaini is also cut from the team that lost to Watford last Sunday.

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has selected a strong team to take on United.

No holding back from the champions here.
