Following Manchester United’s 4-1 win over Leicester, Jose Mourinho has sung the praises of his team. After the win over Claudio Ranieri’s men in the Community Shield, Mourinho is pleased to see his side beat the champions twice already.

It was a very good performance. It’s much more difficult to win in such a comfortable way like we did. Obviously in the second half nobody was expecting to score four more goals and win 8-0 and it was all about control.

I think we started well for the first time I can say. Normally our second-half performances are better than the first. I don’t know why as we prepare in the same way with the same professionalism. Today we had intensity, we had good movement, we were dynamic and we were strong defensively against a team that, I repeat, are easy to analyse but hard to cope with. To be back home and beat the champions is good. Last season we couldn’t beat them and this season we’ve already beaten them twice.

I think the team played very well. You score four goals but your striker doesn’t score a goal and yet I think the striker played phenomenal. I think Ibrahimovic played fantastic in the way he was the start of our attacks. I prefer to say that my team as a team played well.
