Exactly as Manchester United’s manager said, in games against lowly opponents there is an extra risk of not taking a game as seriously as you should, but the Red Devils didn’t fall into that trap, doing an awesome job against Burton Albion to win 4-1 and qualify for the next round of the EFL Cup.
Sometimes players in these cup matches are not professional. But that was an extremely professional performance
Jose Mourinho told Sky Sports after the match at Old Trafford, obviously satisfied with what he had seen the previous two hours on the pitch.
We gave no chance to the opponent. I think Burton fought for a result that allowed them some dignity and their manager made it clear their game at the weekend was more important
the Man United manager said, talking about how dominant his team had looked.
I learnt nothing new. They all want to play and are ready to play. I enjoy that commitment. There were some great performances and the team collectively enjoyed the game. We look happy playing football at this moment
Mourinho also said. United will have to travel to Swansea in the next round of the competition, as they will continue their fight to retain the title they won last season.
