United must show winning mentality, says Lukaku

Shane Duffy's goal helped inflict United's first defeat of the season at Brighton a fortnight ago

United's win, secured by two Romelu Lukaku goals, steadied the ship after successive defeats against Brighton and Tottenham had condemned the club to their worst start for 26 years.

Writing on Twitter, Rashford said: "Emotions got the better of me, I shouldn't of reacted like that".

Speaking about United's overall performance against Burnley, Mourinho said, "I think it was a very, very good performance with a result which was short." .

Mourinho is well aware that there are only so many column inches to fill and the more the press focus on his interviews, the less they will scrutinise his players and their performances.

The fan-funded plane that flew overhead calling executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward "a specialist in failure" was a nod to the fact all is not well at United, but the victory at Burnley was a much-needed show of strength and unity on the field.

Mourinho felt Rashford was to blame for being provoked by former United man Bardsley, but he was nonetheless thrilled with his side's display.

You can't exactly blame United for taking that stance either with the Premier League season still young and the Red Devils counting themselves unlucky vs Spurs.

Jose Mourinho has suggested the size of the pay-off he would be entitled to will shield him from the sack at Manchester United.

"I know what I have to do".

According to Daily Mail, Rashford stormed down the tunnel and booted the dressing room door, with the feeling at Old Trafford that frustration had been building in the forward for some time.

The media officer relented and when Mourinho had finished eulogising over the Belgian, he went back to the question she wanted to take from an Italian journalist who, it transpired, wanted to talk about United's Champions League opponents Juventus. It's good for us.

The centre-back misjudged Sanchez's cross to give Lukaku a free header for his first, sat deep to play the United man onside for his second and could have conceded a penalty for bringing him down in the closing stages.

Trips to two of the three clubs who have 100 per cent records this season - Watford and Chelsea - sandwich a run of games which presents Mourinho and his squad with the chance to put their early-season troubles to bed.

"We won 2-0 but we also had many chances to score, but I am happy with 2-0".

Dalot lasted 78 minutes in his first outing since March and was forced to wear an ice-pack on his troublesome right knee though only as a "precaution".

"Yes, we could have done better with it, but equally, it hits Chas (Taylor) and lands right in his path". He prepared [for] the game in a very good way.
