Manchester United's performances this season are getting ridiculous. "I think that it would galvanise us", he said.
"We know we're going into a very tough week now but we can come out with some good results and it can be seen as a good month, considering (October) was probably one of our toughest months".
The fact that United played well against Everton with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in attack will have proved Mourinho right to drop Lukaku and he may face a battle to get back into the team as a regular over the next few weeks. We just need that consistency for the whole game.
After yet another frustrating start to the game, Manchester United once again crawled their way back, sealing all three points in the dying embers of the game.
For Bournemouth, there was the double success of not only seeing Wilson score his sixth goal of the campaign shortly before the England squad is announced, but also another fine performance from Nathan Ake.

"Jesse and Alexis are in a much better position than last week", said Mourinho.

A spokesperson for the Department for Exiting the European Union said: "There is no set date for negotiations to conclude". But there is still a disagreement over how and when any backstop measures should come to an end.

'We are showing that attitude of never giving in and you can see that coming out.
Instead they went in at 1-1, before the customary United improvement in the second half, in which Alexis Sanchez - starting for the first time since September -and Paul Pogba were especially unsafe. It's a great feeling and it's bringing us closer together.
Lukaku is without a goal in his last nine games at club level, and Ferdinand has questioned whether the Belgium global will ever be able to become the player that United need him to be. Who can give that added burst in the last five minutes?
Smalling recognises that United's indifferent start has left them with an uphill task in order to attain a top-four finish but he knows any criticism comes with the territory.
"And with the players we have, we can react".
