Jose Mourinho stuck up for under-fire Ed Woodward after Manchester United made a timely return to winning ways at Burnley.

United slipped to 13th in the table after registering their worst start to a season since 1992 with back-to-back defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur, but Mourinho, according to Matic, never showed any signs of strain.

But Matic believes there has been no difference in the way he's handled himself.

"They were very good in the early stages of the game, had us on the back foot very early, and it's one of those.it's very good thinking to yourself "go and do this and do that", but it's hard when you're out there".

Concern over his fitness did not deter Mourinho, however, In fact, the Manchester United manager paid more than his £17.4m release clause in order to push the move through as quickly as possible in the face of interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Kyrgios umpire criticised by U.S. Open for going 'beyond protocol'
Lahyani stood over the seated Kyrgios, berating the 23-year-old. "I got pissed off", said 2011 and 2015 champion Djokovic. Kyrgios though played down the incident and denied Lahyani was "coaching" him during the drama-filled second set.

"I didn't see it, the only thing I can say is that is probably the experience of Bardsley, 20 years in football, against the impulse and naivety of a guy who has been in top football for three years but is still a young head", said Mourinho.

"I did my best to keep the boys in it, especially when Marcus (Rashford) got sent off I really thought we could do something, but it wasn't to be".

'He knows what he's doing for sure.

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

One of United's best chances in the second half came via a Paul Pogba penalty, which was saved by Hart, but Mourinho refused to criticise the France midfielder for his miss.

"We've got players in the squad that are inspirational, that you want to go to Old Trafford to watch".
