UNITED’S RED ROAR
demolition job maintained United’s 100 per cent start to the Champions League campaign and consolidated their position at the top of Group A.
The Reds have 29 goals in nine games this campaign, and defender Chris Smalling reckons there is more to come. He said: “That was our best first half of the season. We are showing that we can adapt, change formation and play in different ways. This is what we are about. That’s a big step towards qualifying.”
The win equalled United’s biggest European triumph under Mourinho, following a 4-0 triumph over Feyenoord in the Europa League last season en route to lifting the trophy.
United flew straight back after the game to prepare for another very winnable match, the visit of the Premier League’s bottom club Crystal Palace.
BIG HAND Smalling
