The Saints have won just once in the league at St. Mary's since November previous year and, like their opponents this weekend, are desperately short on goals with both sides scoring just six times in nine games. 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.

Former United captain Wayne Rooney was handed a two-match suspension for his four-letter outburst after scoring a hat-trick at West Ham in April 2011.

United will wait until nearly the last moment to see whether Jesse Lingard can have an impact against Lukaku's former club.

The scorer of 64 league goals for the Old Trafford side, Cantona remains a cult hero with the club, having been appreciated for the flair that he brought to the game before retiring aged 30 in 1997.

Neville has echoed Mourinho's fears and says he's torn whether the Frenchman should stay at the club.

"As José Mourinho said, he's working very hard for the team, but this might actually be working against the striker", the Bulgarian told Betfair.

Spurs fans may be disappointed that they will not play in their new stadium until 2019, but the club are securing the future in other ways. "One day will be the game and one day he will score and one day his confidence levels will be back to normal, which clearly they are not, but I always feel that".

"I think the best thing would be to give him a rest".

"But he is our striker and he is a good striker we believe in".

United return to action in the Premier League against Everton on Sunday.

"The players need to know me and know my movement".

Juventus are not prepared to spend more than a certain figure if they move to re-sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United in upcoming transfer windows.

Manchester United will be without Alexis Sanchez will not feature for Manchester United against Juventus.

A number of centre-backs were linked with United over the course of the summer, with Toby Alderweireld understood to be Mourinho's priority transfer target.
