Maguire catches Mourinho’s eye on Man United debut

Harry Maguire brought instant stability to Manchester United's much-maligned defence yesterday and their 4-0 win over Chelsea showed he can build a strong partnership with fellow centre back Victor Lindelof, Jose Mourinho has said.

Mourinho - who made his return to the Old Trafford on Sunday, albeit as Sky Sports football pundit rather than a manager - opined that Lampard picked the wrong players and claimed that Chelsea did not even do the "basics" against Manchester United, as a result of which they were defeated 4-0. Chelsea had more possession, more shots and indeed more shots on target.

"If they are here it is because they deserve to be".

A Blues line-up featuring several players light on top-flight experience started brightly at Old Trafford, where both Tammy Abraham and Emerson hit the woodwork, but they trailed at the interval to Marcus Rashford's penalty.

Djokovic addressed his frustration with the player council in pre-tournament comments at Wimbledon. That's it, no? Is about just trying to help the game to be better.

It was a clinical display from Solskjaer's team in the second half with three goals in 16 minutes, but James insists there is still room for improvement. For them and for me, as I said you couldn't write it. That was where we let ourselves down in not putting the chances away.

"You can be very risky in attack but if you feel that a mistake is around the corner it takes your confidence away and you don't play as well". We have to face it, take the responsibility and move forward.

It was a bright start to the season for the Red Devils, whose impressive performance has given the United fans belief that they can better last season's underwhelming sixth-place finish.
