Manchester United have their fear factor back under Jose Mourinho - Paul Parker

Vera Richards | 14 September, 2017, 02:21

Manchester United cruised their way to an easy 3-0 win against FC Basel in their UEFA Champions League opener this Tuesday.

Paul Pogba's hamstring injury was the only negative on a straightforward evening for Mourinho, whose strength in depth was laid bare by the fact Herrera did not even make the bench.

There was one negative as Paul Pogba was forced off with a hamstring problem.

Mourinho claimed after the game he had not spoken to the player or the medical stuff and did not know how bad the injury would be - but that he thought it may be some time before Pogba could play again - and would call on his squad to help get through said games.

Eric Bailly and Phil Jones have been Mourinho's first-choice centre-back pairing so far in the current campaign, with the United boss easing Lindelof into Premier League life in a similar fashion to Henrikh Mkhitaryan was last season.

"Because I know that his desire is to improve quicker".

The Belgium midfielder subsequently opened the scoring for the hosts 10 minutes before the break by heading home Ashley Young's right-wing cross from six yards.

Fellaini was jeered by some United supporters last season after conceding a late penalty that enabled Everton to rescue a 1-1 draw in a Premier League game at Goodison Park in December.

Jose Mourinho's side have already scored an impressive 15 goals in just five games across all competitions this season, and now sit top of Group A after beating the Swiss champions at Old Trafford.

"Just a naive mistake when he made a penalty in the last minute at Goodison Park".

"I think it was a very good debut", Lindelof said after the 3-0 win.

"They're killing teams off".

"So what I want is to have the players available and sometimes they are not playing, but for me as a manager it's important to have options".

"What I didn't like was that at the beginning we seemed a bit scared, particularly when we had the ball".
