Jose Mourinho believes Manchester United could struggle in attack following the departure of Romelu Lukaku and predicts Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ’ s side will face difficulty against teams who defend deeper .
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to offload Lukaku to Inter this summer , which means Anthony Martial , Marcus Rashford , Alexis Sanchez and 17- year – old Mason Greenwood will be competing for the central striker role .
Martial and Rashford both scored as United beat Chelsea 4 – 0 in their Premier League opener at Old Trafford on Sunday .
But after the game , Mourinho raised doubts over whether Martial and Rashford will be able to maintain consistency throughout the season against more organised sides . ‘ I think they can when they are facing teams like Chelsea , I think they were too soft, ’ Mourinho told
Sky Sports .
‘‘ It ’ s difficult to qualify them , they [Chelsea ] were not compact defensively, too much space to play , not enough aggression on the ball, the defensive line, the midfield , the attack , they were not compact . ”
‘‘ I think United will find it much more difficult to play against teams with low compact blocks.
“‘If the blocks are low blocks it will be really difficult for them without a pure striker .
‘ With high blocks who can press them higher and be more aggressive , in the Premier League we have very good teams who can do that who are not in the top six , I think it can be difficult . ”
