Manchester United fans showed their backing for manager Jose Mourinho after Romelu Lukaku struck twice as United returned to winning ways after two successive Premier League losses with a 2-0 victory at Burnley on Sunday. "The season is long".

"We should have scored more in the first half and more in the second half, but. we played better than we did last season and there was a big improvement in our play". While there are some that will want to try and keep their momentum going as best they can, the likes of Manchester United have been fairly inconsistent - and therefore, will likely need to take a step back and analyse how things have gone as of late. It does have to be said that he should have probably got at least a few more goals and got his hattrick in the game, but as long as he is getting into the positions to score the goals we can't really complain.

Jose Mourinho has continued to stick a Red Devils academy graduate on the wing or the bench , with a player of considerable potential being prevented from unlocking it.

The former England frontman told BBC Radio 5 Live : "I think that Rashford, especially when he burst onto the scene, we saw flashes of a striker that can go into the space and he can link up, and he can finish".

"They say I'm in danger but I don't think so".

After the game a reflective Dyche said the tough schedule to start the season has been "a useful period of great experience." .

"Manchester United are a very good side".

"I know what I have to do", the Belgian added.

"He could have scored more but maybe he was a bit exhausted, playing with 10 men". Everybody wanted to win. Reminding the gathered media how good he used to be - along the lines of "I've won more titles in the English league than the other 19 coaches put together" - and demanding respect have been two such outburts.

They neutralized Burnley's threat by playing Fellaini, whose aerial dominance ensured that Pogba was served with second balls to launch quick counter-attacks.

In light of those disappointments the manager has started to make grand gestures towards the fans, including standing to applaud them after the 3-0 defeat at home to Tottenham and climbing into the away section to give a young fan his jacket at Burnley.

Whether that would be true or not is not important, the important things is that Man United now have more peace.
