Mourinho explains why De Gea didn't play against Sunderland

Goals by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford eased United to a vital three points after drawing six of their previous nine Premier League games. Because of course I can't move the same as five or 10 years ago, but the older, the more experienced, the more intelligent [you get], you don't waste so much energy on things you don't really need. "I feel like Benjamin Button". And Ibrahimovic, 35, has likened himself to the fictional character, played by Brad Pitt in the film of the same title, who gets younger in appearance with age.

Sebastian Larsson was sent off in the first half to make matters worse, and while Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan scored classy individual goals, the third, as seen below, involved some excellent build-up play before Rashford converted. Every team has a couple of them.

London [U.K], April 10 (ANI): Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that his side are still fighting for a top-four finish in the Premier League following their recent 3-0 win against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Lukaku now has 23 goals for the season.

Jose Mourinho has praised his Manchester United team for remaining in the hunt for a Premier League top four place.

"He was very good", the United manager said.

After Sunderland recorded a seventh match without a goal to leave them bottom and 10 points adrift of safety, Moyes added: "We won't talk about relegation until it's mathematically impossible to stay up even though there's no hiding that we're in a tough position". There's no hiding the fact that we're in a hard position.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte praised his team's refusal to bend to the pressure of the title race after their 3-1win at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Mourinho then indicated Shaw will resume his starting place when United take on Chelsea next week by saying he considered protecting the left-back from suspension by substituting him at half-time. But Conte's side were seldom in danger as they restored their seven-point advantage.

"The game was good and we get 1-0 (up) and they get the red card". We started positively. I'm not saying very aggressive in terms of the intensity of our game but comfortable and in control.
