Man Utd manager Jose Mourinho takes swipe at QUIET Old Trafford atmosphere

Alexis Sanchez

At Old Trafford, United struggled for 55 minutes to break down the visitors after manager David Warner set up a defensive line-up. "We had to be patient but had to keep the intensity high and the pressure".

"Scott was a little kid who arrived here at nine years old with his mum for his first training session; 10 or 11 years after, the kid is playing in a Manchester United shirt in an important match in the Premier League at Old Trafford".

Following Lukaku's fine left-footed finish on Saturday, Sanchez got on the scoresheet when he tucked the loose ball in having seen his penalty attempt - a spot-kick he had won - parried by Jonas Lossl.

Pogba eventually came on as a 65th-minute substitute for Jesse Lingard in a disjointed United performance that still saw United close the gap on leaders Manchester City to 13 points. Although Pogba has delivered some excellent displays this season, he has also been criticised on several occasions, notably for his rash sending off against Arsenal.

"It was nice for Alexis Sanchez to win a match, the first at home", added Mourinho.


In Saturday's lunchtime kick-off, City had been made to pay for not taking their chances at Burnley, who are placed seventh.

"Of course we are frustrated in terms of the result but the performance was outstanding against a Burnley side who are the most British of teams in terms of long balls and the way they play", said City boss Pep Guardiola. "It's for him, his agent and the club to deal with, but we would welcome him back", said Leicester defender Harry Maguire.

Huddersfield's loss dropped them into the bottom three as Southampton and Swansea City both moved above them.

Sixth-placed Arsenal (45) led Everton 4-0 at halftime and won 5-1 as Welsh worldwide Aaron Ramsey scored the first hat-trick of his career.
