Manchester United fans were left furious with Jose Mourinho’s decisions during the club’s 0-0 draw against Burnley.
He left Henrikh Mkhitarayn out of his squad once again and fans expected to see him in action after the Portuguese boss previously revealed he was 100% fit.
Here’s what fans had to say about Mourinho’s decisions on social media.
Wondering what Mourinho was thinking when he took Mata off. Baffling sub. And I thought we were past the weird subs routine when LVG left.

Mourinho is incapable of making the right decision in the face of pressure. He's a complete tactical moron. Blame him not the players.

Mata coming off was a mistake especially when we were down by a man. Once again the team has suffered due to Mourinho's bad decision. #mufc

Mourinho has every reason to blame the refs, but unless Fosu Messengera tampered with those notes, he can only blame himself for the subs.

I demand an apology from Mourinho for those useless subs he made…….

Those 3 subs didn't offer anything. AT ALL! Pathetic thinking from Mourinho. Smh #MUFC

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was left on the pitch throughout the whole game, despite missing a majority of his shots, however many were down to Tom Heaton’s spectacular saves.
It just makes you think how the game could have ended if we had Mkhitarayn on the right-wing and Rashford playing up front, could it have been what we needed? We’ll never know, but the Armenian would have been perfect solution against Burnley and his exclusion doesn’t make any sense.
Mourinho was sent into the stands during the second-half and while he can’t be blamed for our players’ poor finishing, he has to take responsibility for his decisions and substitutions, which have now left the club eight points off the top of the table.
