Allegri wary of Man United distraction as Ronaldo starts against Cagliari

Jose Mourinho is struggling to understand why Manchester United have developed a habit of starting games slowly after they hit back to snatch a dramatic 2-1 win against Bournemouth. Mourinho's team have kept just one clean sheet in their first 11 league games this season compared to eight over the same spell last term and the United manager believes it is the cost of playing more attacking football.

Jose Mourinho's team is slowly climbing the ladder, as they will be a month and a half away from their last league loss by the time the Manchester Derby starts next weekend. "A tough time, I thought I was the luckiest manager in the Premier League".

"I think we were much better in the second half".

Despite United's recent improvement Smalling acknowledges that poor results earlier in the campaign means the club face a real battle to try and finish in the top four. When I say defensively I just don't look to the defenders. "We are doing everything we can to get there, the 28-year-old said".

"I'm trying to find a balance where we develop the team in the second and first phase of attack, and we develop the talented players that we have without losing the balance".

Genoa offered little, even when Piatek was sent on for former Inter forward Goran Pandev, five minutes into the second half. We take too many things for granted. "We are going to be in a better position", he said. "It was much better".

"He's gone from being that player who's been brought into the squad, who's happy to come off the bench and make that impact". The lead can be overturned against teams like Newcastle and Bournemouth, but big games are coming thick and fast and United need to be ready for them from the first minute.

"[He] was the one that changed the game by giving the team, the balance, the intensity, the high pressure, the organisation that the team didn't have until then I think he was fundamental for us". "Against Everton we were good, but we need to be a team who performs well in the whole game".
