JOSE MOURINHO REACTS TO SUNDERLAND WIN


Jose Mourinho was satisfied with Manchester United's dominant display at the Stadium of Light, where well-taken goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford secured a comfortable 3-0 win away against 10-man Sunderland.

Here's what the manager said in his post-match interviews with MUTV, Sky Sports and BBC Sport…

A GOOD WIN AGAINST A SAD TEAM
“The result was good," Jose said. "We resisted the results of yesterday when Manchester City and Liverpool won, they left us in a position of 'yes' or 'no'. It was 'yes'. We got three points and it was a solid display.

"It was against a team that is sad, it's normal. Against a team that is sad, if you score before then it's difficult for them to react. You could feel the negative feeling around the team. That is felt with a team is close to relegation. We started positively. I’m not saying very aggressive in terms of the intensity of our game but comfortable and in control. When you score a goal, you play against a sad team. And when you score before them, normally in these circumstances, you kill the match and in the second half, with the second goal, against 10 men, it was comfortable. Not a brilliant performance but a comfortable one.”

PLEASED FOR LUKE SHAW
“I took Shaw off because of the yellow card and the pressure from the crowd," Jose said, discussing the recalled left-back. "It was good to protect him but it was also good for him to play one hour with a good solid performance and no mistakes, so I'm really pleased for him.”

THE IMPORTANCE OF ZLATAN'S GOAL
“It was open at 0-0. We were in control without danger. We were playing quite compact and solid. You need these players to break it. Every team has a couple of them. Zlatan did that. It’s very important and one more goal for him is a beautiful number that he’s getting [28 goals this season]. We felt the game was in our pocket. In this beautiful weather, the game was played at a more slow intensity.”

NOT ALWAYS EASY AGAINST 10 MEN
“When the 10 men are not losing they can close, they can be more defensive, they can park the bus and defend. When they are losing and they have one player less, they try to attack, they have one player less, they open more spaces and normally you win the game.”

TIMING OF SECOND GOAL WAS PERFECT
“I told them in the second half we had to go to kill the game. It was under control but we needed the second goal to kill mentally the opponent. But I didn’t expect that it was after one minute. I was thinking it had to be after a solid period of intensity for our attacking football. But we started the game, scored a goal and killed it.”
