Following the 2-0 win over Watford, a win that keeps the pressure on those above us in the Premier League, whilst also extending our run to sixteen Premier League games without defeat, both managers spoke to the media.

Jose Mourinho, was, naturally, delighted about the win, remarking,

‘In the first half, the football was fabulous. The fans got behind the team just before we scored the goal because we were phenomenal.

‘We are not a team scoring lots of goals so it is important to keep the clean sheets. I am really happy with the performance.

‘Martial deserves the chance. He has worked harder than ever in the last two weeks in the way I like – silent but hard.’

Good to see Anthony Martial picking up some positive vibes after the plethora of negative vibes that have come his way in recent weeks.

As for the Watford manager, Walter Mazzarri, he was a little more down-beat, remarking,

‘It is a pity because we started very well. The important thing that we have to avoid is losing too many balls in the midfield. This is what cost us the result today.

‘We had a chance with Jose Holebas, but, after they scored, for five to 10 minutes we lost a little bit of focus and especially defensively we committed some mistakes.’

Next up for Manchester United is an enticing Europa League fixture, this Thursday, against St Etienne.
