Jose Mourinho Presser Ahead of the Leicester City Match

  • Jose Mourinho believes he is instilling a winning mentality at Manchester United

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's Man-of-the-Match display for Manchester United against Leicester City on Sunday provided further evidence of his growing acclimatisation to the Premier League.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic then took advantage of awful marking by the Premier League champions to side-foot home his 15th Premier League goal of the season.

His double took his tally to three goals and two assists in four league and cup games since arriving at City from Brazilian side Palmeiras last month.

Frustrated by criticism of the cautious nature of his teams when he was in charge at Chelsea, Mourinho made it clear that he is unimpressed the way the Blues, now nine points clear at the top, and also Tottenham and Liverpool, have been praised despite employing safety-first philosophies.

Separating Leicester and Hull is Swansea, another team that has been miles better since changing managers and almost got a point out of Manchester City earlier in the day.

Leicester's implosion was total and these are the moments when it feels entirely possible that they could become the first club since Manchester City in 1938 to be relegated the season after winning the top-flight title.

"That's what we want", said Herrera. Mourinho was obviously quite proud of the win, insisting they would never play in such a counter-attadcking way. Chris Smalling, for instance, completed 19 out of 20 clearances at the King Power Stadium in a game the Red Devils won 3-0 - only 2 players in the Premier League have made more in a single match this season.

"People will remember him and Leicester and that deserves respect".

China's manufacturing sector continues to improve
Detailed within the report, the domestic market was a "prime" source of new business, whilst exports reported a modest increase. Manufacturers have responded with an increase in selling prices, which may in turn begin to drive consumer price inflation.

And Mourinho - who praised his players for a clinical display in the first half - believes his side are very much in the race for the Champions League places.

"Look, my team is playing very well". They go to Borussia Dortmund every year and buy their best player.

"The game has completely different perspective and we did that very, very well but we lacked a little bit of creativity by playing this way".

"Sometimes the best way to protect players is not to play them", said Mourinho, as quoted by the source.

Marcus Rashford hadn't scored in the league since netting against Leicester in September and the United striker, unmarked 10 yards from goal, squandered a good opportunity to end that barren run when he blazed over from Mkhitaryan's pinpoint cross.

Mkhitaryan initially found life in Manchester hard, but appears to have been rejuvenated in recent weeks after a spell out of the first-team, with Mourinho telling reporters that this decision was taken to "protect" the £27m summer signing.

Jamie Vardy had 24 goals last season. It was only 3-0 but United could have scored at least 5 or 6.
