Jose Mourinho on the win and what it means to recover from back-to-back defeats


Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was full of praise for his players after the 4-1 win against Leicester City.

The Red Devils desperately needed all three points after suffering two consecutive defeats in the English Premier League.

And the Portuguese was delighted as his side moved up to fifth in the table.

"It was a very good performance," Mourinho said.

"It's much more difficult to win in such a comfortable way like we did. We felt their fragility after the second goal and we went for more and played really well. Obviously in the second half nobody was expecting to score four more goals and win 8-0 and it was all about control.

"I think we started well for the first time I can say. Normally our second-half performances are better than the first. I don't know why as we prepare in the same way with the same professionalism.

"Today we had intensity, we had good movement, we were dynamic and we were strong defensively against a team that, I repeat, are easy to analyse but hard to cope with. To be back home and beat the champions is good. Last season we couldn't beat them and this season we've already beaten them twice.

"We lost six points in the Premier League but the reality is that we are not drawing, we are winning. The situation of dropping points but not drawing games is basically the same.

"We have 12 points but today was about the result, the performance and the happiness of the fans. On Thursday we have a very important match in the Europa League and to be back here after such a good result for us is good."
