Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring in the 55th minute before Alexis Sanchez marked his United home debut with his first goal for the club.

Asked afterwards about Sanchez, Mourinho also took the opportunity to make reference to the atmosphere inside the stadium: 'He played only three (matches since joining from Arsenal) and the first at Old Trafford, and I think Old Trafford, in spite of being a quiet stadium, the pitch is big, the grass is nice and obviously the players feel very comfortable playing here.'

Meanwhile, Mourinho also explained his decision to put Paul Pogba on the bench following the midweek defeat at Tottenham, with Scott McTominay handed a surprise place in the staring line-up.

Centre-back Phil Jones, who scored an own goal at Wembley, was dropped from the matchday squad all together.

'To sit on the bench one day is not the end of the world,' the Portuguese said of Pogba.

'The intention is not to punish anyone. To punish someone I also need someone to punish me because we are a team. I made a few changes thinking about the characteristics of this game.'
