Romelu Lukaku celebrates scoring against Burnley

Speaking at The FIFA Best Awards, Schmeichel, who spent eight trophy-laden years at United during the 1990s, said: "You've got the Jose Mourinho way - a proven victor - he has his own way of reacting and dealing with whatever. We should have kill [ed] the game much earlier, but the performance was very good, very solid and important".

May believes the amount of speculation and criticism Mourinho has attracted in recent weeks has been excessive and says the Manchester United manager should snap back if he wants. You probably know that also.

"I've done it for years but I've done it in a bigger squad", said Hart of battling on two fronts.

Manchester United have taken six points from their opening four Premier League games so far this season.

Manchester United raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to a first-half brace from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford's late red card mattered little as the result was already firmly in the bag.

"We knew where they could cause us problems with the long balls; that is why Marouane Fellaini played close to our defence, to stop the long balls".

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".

"We will see in March where we are because in March you can see who is fighting for the title, who is not, who is fighting to be in the top 4. He won 2-0", the Portuguese joked after the game. "The season is long".

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

"Two young players that need to get on the field in order to improve and to show us consistently the quality they have, particularly Rashford". "I have certain experience, 10 years in the Premier League". Only seven players received more starts than him throughout the entire campaign.
