Eriksen scores after 11 seconds for 3rd fastest EPL goal

"It is nice to do that playing at home and winning", Mourinho said.

He said: "The second goal mentally kills the team".

Deployed on the left-wing, Sanchez's effect was entirely nullified by Kieran Trippier and as many would say, Alexis went missing on his Premier League debut for Manchester United. That is why the team must show improvements against the newly-promoted side.

"In 06-07 Man United won the title back. It has to be like that".

United dominated throughout and did craft a few first-half chances, but they were largely frustrated by a dogged Huddersfield defence.

Today against Huddersfield the Frenchman was made to start on the bench, with Anthony Martial and Phil Jones also dropped, with Jones not even in the 18 for the game.

"Also, aiming for the top four is the target and it would in fact be progress over last season", he further added. Try to finish second.

He said: "I can not say we, Tottenham or Chelsea are doing bad because the points we have are very reasonable, but Manchester City started strong, and kept doing strong, and managed to win matches they didn't deserve - I give credit - with that last push of the last-minute goal, the winning goal in extra time". When we win we win together, when we lose we lose together'.

The victory took Mourinho's side up to 56 points, second in the table and 13 points behind Manchester City.

The result at Wembley might have been different had Tottenham's opener after 11 seconds been disallowed because Harry Kane was encroaching in United's half.

On his part, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had other reasons as his main triggers that compelled him to withdraw the Frenchman just by the hour mark.

"Sometimes mistakes happen. In the last match against Tottenham, the first goal is not legal". Am I going to blame the linesman because he didn't see it?

"The reaction, the strength, the union after that situation and I think tomorrow is an incredible day to show the respect, to show the passion for the club, respect for them, the families and I think is a day to play well".
