Marcus Rashford Receives First Red Card Of His Career

Justin GreeneSep 05, 2018

But Jose Mourinho's side bounced back ahead of the worldwide break with a 2-0 win over Burnley thanks to a brace from Romelu Lukaku.

United slipped to 13th in the table after registering their worst start to a season since 1992 with back-to-back defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur, but Mourinho, according to Matic, never showed any signs of strain.

Manchester United fans showed their backing for manager Jose Mourinho after Romelu Lukaku struck twice as United returned to winning ways after two successive Premier League losses with a 2-0 victory at Burnley on Sunday.

He said: "He was very confident before the game he prepared the game in a very good way".

The former Southampton man was United's best performer against Spurs and certainly seems to be impressing Mourinho with his gritty, inspiring performances.

The result has eased the pressure a little on Mourinho who now ventures into the worldwide break with a smile back on his face, and the support of many fans, but he knows full well that a defeat at high-flying Watford in their next outing would hurl him back into the pressure put. This helped silence parts of the media, claiming he was still "one of the greatest managers in the world" whilst also battling against opposing fans jeering "you're not special anymore".

That said, United also aren't a football club who are exactly famed for their fiscal prudence either. "[Against Burnley] the fans were fantastic from the first minute, but Old Trafford is a moment to remember".

"I didn't see planes but Ed Woodward won this afternoon".

The miss continued a troubled start to the campaign for French World Cup victor Pogba, who was criticised by Mourinho in the close-season for his erratic effort levels for United.

"We are Manchester United, this is how we have to play in every game and against Tottenham we did the same".

When they return to action, United will face two really tough back to back games in the form of Watford and Young Boys, with the latter signalling the start of their Champions League campaign this season.

"We will work together and get the right things done".

"As long as we create chances, we know we will score".

He added: "The manager put me in the team and I gave everything for the team, but the most important thing is the three points".
