Jose Mourinho criticises 'quiet' Old Trafford atmosphere

LONDON ENGLAND- SEPTEMBER 14 Rob Holding of Arsenal during the UEFA Europa League group H match between Arsenal FC and 1. FC Koeln at Emirates Stadium

Jose Mourinho claimed that Manchester United has to break down a "Berlin Wall" of Huddersfield Town's defence to beat the Terriers on Saturday.

"He played only three and the first at Old Trafford".

"In the second-half I chose to make a change and bring (Marouane) Fellaini with different qualities than him, to try to be stronger in midfield with Fellaini and (Nemanja) Matic because I wanted Alexis to play as a second striker with (Romelu) Lukaku".

The win sees United increase the gap to fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur back to eight points, whereas Huddersfield drop into the relegation zone following a fifth successive Premier League defeat.

It was the first goal United had conceded in over 600 minutes of Premier League football.

Juan Mata peeled away smartly along the left wing before delivering a risky cross aimed towards the front post which the Belgian forward managed to steer past goalkeeper Jonas Lössl with precision. You can win a game if you're ready to fight.

"Alexis Sanchez played really well and he will be a very important player for us with his quality".

"I told him yesterday, sign the contract and shut up", Mourinho joked at his news conference on Friday.

"We had to be patient, but had to keep the intensity high and the pressure".

It all started for United in as early as the 11th second when a well-worked move was converted into the net by Christian Eriksen.

And Mourinho wants United's improvement to begin with the visit of Huddersfield on Saturday as the Red Devils seek to bounce back and ensure a top-four finish.

The big-haired Belgian came off the bench during Wednesday's 2-0 defeat at Wembley, but he lasted just seven minutes and 29 seconds before being subbed off again.

The former Chelsea manager insisted afterwards the Belgium global went off with a lateral ligament injury and it was one of many talking points for the visitors.

Probably we are going to lose him for a few weeks, but I can not say if it's two, three, four or five [weeks].

"He came off because he had something in his knee".

"They are a far better team with him in it, but maybe Jose's thought he needs a bit of a lesson and he needs to show him that he's looking at the other night and he's showing the dressing room", Neville told Sky Sports.
