Jose Mourinho Has Chosen Another Unlikely Captain And It's Baffled Everyone
| Last updated
For the second week running, Manchester United fans have been left puzzled by Jose Mourinho's choice for captain.
Last week against Sunderland, in a game United won 3-0, Marouane Fellaini was chosen by the Portuguese boss when Zlatan Ibrahimovic appeared to be the more logical option.
Fellaini isn't the choice today though and neither is Ibrahimovic, as the latter is on the bench.

Is it me or is Mourinho picking his captain on a random generator now?
Here are some of the best reactions to Young being appointed captain for the game:
