Nemanja Matic backs Manchester United boss Mourinho

Jose Mourinho felt his Manchester United side should have scored several more goals against Burnley, criticising his side for not putting the game to bed when they had the chance.

Defeats by Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur increased the scrutiny on United, Woodward and Mourinho but while this win will not end the doubts over the club's direction it did suggest they are not in free-fall.

Following Sunday's 2-0 victory, Matic admitted that he felt Mourinho was attempting to shield his players from pressure in the press. He prepared [for] the game in a very good way.

"Of course, he knows what he is doing [in press conferences] for sure".

"You know, in the match I am not looking to the sky - unless I am asking something for the guy to give me help", Mourinho said of the banner.

Former Manchester City goalkeeper Hart, who saved a penalty from Paul Pogba during the loss to United, said: 'The break comes at a good time for us. "You know what he won in his career so that shows you everything".

United allowed Marouane Fellaini's contract to run down and eventually bowed to the Belgian's wage demands after a series of public pleas from Mourinho.

The win at Burnley means United sit on six points after four games - and a further six behind Liverpool, Chelsea and surprise package Watford. Quickly individuals will see the brand new Manchester United. I don't see any difference.

But considering the media spotlight on United and manager Jose Mourinho's future after the previous round of fixtures, Rashford's red card being the biggest drama represents a form of respite for the club.

"We lost at home, the fans were awesome to the team, the team understood that the direction was good, the result was bad".

"I don't know, I didn't watch", Mourinho said. "This two week period now gives us a chance to rest and work, but certainly refresh ourselves for the challenge which is the Premier League". Everybody wanted to win.

The 3-0 defeat to Mauricio Pochettino's men was considered both woeful and wasteful, with United missing a number of opportunities in a commanding first half display that should've wrapped up the game. When quizzed about still holding the prestigious title of "The Special One" he demanded "respect, respect, respect" from journalists, noting his three Premier League titles is more than the other division's bosses combined.
