Roar­ing for­ties Jose’s record run

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Sport Champions League -


Jose Mour­inho’s United are now unbeaten in their last 40 home games in all com­pe­ti­tions, their joint-long­est run on home soil.

I have to con­cen­trate on the English com­pe­ti­tions.” There was also praise for United de­fender Luke Shaw, mak­ing his first start in 219 days and play­ing 90 min­utes. Shaw was play­ing his first game in the Cham­pi­ons League since Septem­ber 2015, when he suf­fered a dou­ble leg frac­ture against PSV Ein- dhoven. Mour­inho has had a frac­tious re­la­tion­ship with the 22-year-old, but hinted he will be given more op­por­tu­ni­ties. “It was a very pos­i­tive per­for­mance, es­pe­cially with the ball go­ing for­wards,” he said. “He was re­ally dan­ger­ous, cre­at­ing a lot, there was a lot of in­ten­sity in his game.

“It was no sur­prise that he was feeling the con­se­quences of that in­ten­sity. He was de­serv­ing of that op­por­tu­nity for quite a long time and he is go­ing to get more be­cause the per­for­mance was pos­i­tive.”
