Jose Mourinho hails impact of three Manchester United stars on Anthony Martial

Jose Mourinho hails impact of three Manchester United stars on Anthony Martial”

'It was important for our confidence not to concede a goal.

"We always looked like, 'Let's at least control the game by having the ball and trying to score more goals.' And we did that in both matches".

Swansea created a number of close chances for Tammy Abraham after the break, the 19-year-old striker risky throughout for the hosts, however they failed to take any of them as Clement's side lacked a killer touch in front of goal to truly test David de Gea. It was a similar story at the Liberty Stadium, with eight shots on target converted into four goals.

Rashford's star has only been on the rise since been handed his debut back in the 2015/16 season by former manager Louis van Gaal, with the 19-year-old impressing many during his debut full season last year despite scoring that many goals. They have already done it twice and it is still August.

United beat Swansea on Saturday lunch-time thanks to goals from Eric Bailly, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial. Against West Ham, Rashford's display was huge.

And if there is one thing Mourinho has built up a fierce reputation for in the Premier League, it is bursting into an early point lead and holding onto it. It took Martial until New Year's Eve.

Pogba has scored two goals and provided four assists in the Red Devils' opening two Premier League matches of the 2017-18 campaign.

Swansea unravelled in the closing stages of their first game since selling key man Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton.

Mourinho, though, is refusing to get carried away.

United scored three golazo's in the final 10 minutes.

"It was a tough game, especially in the first half when they had five defenders", the Armenian said.

Gerrard has always been an admirer of Mourinho, who tried to sign him on several occasions during spells at Chelsea and Real Madrid and he believes the three-time Premier League victor is back in title contention this season.

United will face bitter North-West rivals Liverpool on October 14 and know that the game represents the first real test for Mourinho's side. They have a good chance.
