United returns to winning ways

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho hailed the importance of the fans’ reaction to the defeat to Tottenham after Manchester United got back on track against Burnley.

Romelu Lukaku scored twice as United returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over the Clarets at Turf Moor.

United were put on course for a routine victory when Lukaku headed them in front on 27 minutes and the Belgium striker doubled his tally with a close-range second a minute before half-time.

The win comes after a turbulent start to the campaign under Mourinho, which included a 3-0 home defeat to Spurs on Monday Night Football.
