Manchester United fans have lambasted Jose Mourinho for his line up in the build-up to today’s match with Middlesbrough at Old Trafford.
With 2016 coming to a close, Mourinho has opted to shake up his starting eleven with Michael Carrick missing through illness.
Both Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo have bizarrely been dropped, whilst Marouane Fellaini has been chosen ahead of Bastian Schweinsteiger to cover Carrick’s absence.
Anthony Martial also replaces Juan Mata.
Safe to say, supporters of the Red Devils are less than pleased with Mourinho..

Wht does Fellaini do in training that he is Mourinho’s go to guy and why cant he replicate it on matchday? #MUFC

With any luck, Schweinsteiger has just found a wig and convinced Mourinho he’s actually Fellaini, and it’s not that tree on the teamsheet.

@ManUtd utterly disappointed to see Fellaini in the starting lineup, otherwise, it seems a perfect one.
