Jose Mourinho has hailed his team after they ended their winless run yesterday against Everton.
United played top drawer football, winning 2-0 away to end a series of draws.
Martial, who started in place of Lukaku scored the opener, while Lingard rounded up the scoring and Mourinho says he would be proud of their performance, even if they had not gotten a win.
“The boys deserve it,” Mourinho told Sky Sports. “I keep saying that the draws have not been bad performances, because there were situations that have made it more difficult for us.
“We made our mistakes, especially in games against Leicester and Burnley, but the attitude, effort and pride were fantastic.
“Everything was top class. I think we played very well. It didn’t look like a tired performance or the sort of performance [you might expect] after the worst possible calendar you [the Premier League] give to us.
“Okay, Everton had a reaction in the second half, but we were always in control. I’m really pleased with the points. Even without points, I’d be proud of what the boys did.”
