The win sees United go into the first global break of the season placed 10th in the Premier League on six points and six behind leaders Liverpool.

Mourinho's men rallied impressively at Turf Moor on Sunday, when Romelu Lukaku's first half brace secured a win far more comfortable than the 2-0 scoreline suggests.

The 29-year-old is unhappy that Manchester United are delaying offering him a new contract and will be a free agent at the end of the season, as per the Metro.

Mourinho's Old Trafford reign has come under more scrutiny than ever before as United started the season with two defeats from their opening three games, their worst start to acampaign since 1992.


"Harsh? I don't know - could get a yellow card for both and keep going".

The Belgium global has now called upon his teammates to build on the victory and continue improving their performances as they aim to climb the Premier League standings.

"The three points were an important thing, the quality of the performance and happiness of the team is an Old Trafford response - the way Old Trafford reacted to the boys in the Spurs defeat was important", he said. That tells a lot about the situation in media and the way people think about things - wanting everything right now.

"Manchester United are a very good side".


"Harsh? I don't know".

"I think Gareth Southgate wants him to play, he wants him to play somewhere", Wright added.

"The spirit was great", he said. "I have certain experience, 10 years in the Premier League".

Dyche explained: "We've been trying to monitor the workload of the players, equally monitoring the ones who have laid down a little bit of a marker and done well". Everybody wanted to win. "If they send me away, do you have any idea how much money they would have to give me?" he chuckled when speaking to journalists from Italian newspapers Gazzetta dello Sport and La Repubblica.


The United manager clambered over the advertising hoardings at full time and gave his jacket to one of the fans that had chanted his name throughout, sticking with their team as they did on Monday. The challenges, the 50-50 balls, everyone wanted to win them, the second balls, too. Before the campaign began those two games probably wouldn't have been all that scary for the Red Devils, but at this point in time, there's no team in the world that they shouldn't be cautious of in some way.
