Agreed, Mourinho is sucking the life out of Milkhitaryan, who'd be a star at any of the other top clubs in the PL. He'll be playing Young instead of him soon as an even shitter version of Willian.
Think the early season goal flurry was just a flash in the pan. Jose got them into pre-season more intensely, had them fitter and sharper than most other clubs, but now the rest have caught up and we're back to the dismal slogs we were accustomed to last season. When you think about the fact that most of our goal flurries came in the last ten minutes in the first few weeks of the season, it becomes obvious that it was about fitness programs and nothing else.
