Man United get Jones boost ahead of Tottenham clash

Man United get Jones boost ahead of Tottenham clash

This really should be a bookable offence. United pulled a goal back on the 78th minute through winger Marcus Rashford, however Town managed to survive the pressure and hold on to all three points.

Anthony Martial and Ander Herrera are said to have come in for criticism from Mourinho in the dressing room after Saturday's defeat, while Juan Mata was at fault for the first goal.

The impressive nature of United's victory at Swansea - courtesy of Jesse Lingard's first brace for the club - was a timely boost given the performances since the last worldwide break.

Mourinho claimed that playing Victor Lindelof with such a low level of confidence meant he needed to have some extra protection and chose to play with Chris Smalling as well and also allow Alex Tuanzebe the support to be able to play with confidence as well. The 19-year-old was commanding and calm in possession, he was involved in the build-up for Lingard's second goal and was dubbed a "real prospect" by Lineker following the game.

"It was quite comfortable and no injuries", he said.

With progress into the latter stages of the League Cup secured, McTominay will surely at least get more game time in that competition if not anywhere else.

"Scott McTominay did very well, strong in the midfield".

Fans were definitely delighted with his performance and the academy product nearly grabbed himself a goal to round off a good display.

"The kids are always the kids so when they play it is nice, it is good, when they perform well it is even better", Mourinho told MUTV.
