Jose Mourinho says he is “very confident” after Manchester United won their third straight game to open the season, but he’s not getting carried away quite yet.
“We can look into perspective, last season we won against Leicester at home so that doesn’t make a difference but we had too many draws at home last season,” he said.
“The difference is the quality of our football, we’re playing better today and if we hadn’t won this match I wouldn’t have anyone to blame.
“The team is playing very well and I’m very confident. We are comfortable on the ball and dangerous on the counter attack.
“But nine points after three matches is nothing different for us because we did that last season.”
“If I don’t have them on the bench I can’t make successful changes,” he said. “The players work hard and those who are not playing and are on the bench, or in the stands, are working hard too and waiting for the chance.”
“We played very well. The result was open at 0-0 and it was obviously very difficult. The blue wall was very well organised and I always give credit to that, but we kept calm and kept control.
“After missing the penalty team remained confident and we deserved it. If I had to choose a word to describe my team it would be solid.”
