Manchester United will have a great future if the players continue to take on board Jose Mourinho's criticism, defender Eric Bailly has told the official Premier League website.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford scored in United's win, which keeps the club fifth in the Premier League table.

Mourinho on the run-in: "After Manchester City and Liverpool won, if we hadn't won today it would have nearly been mathematically impossible".

"Manchester United were playing well, but the red card was a decision that went against us".
"We felt the game was in our pocket".
"But the Europa League becomes fundamental for us, it's the only competition we can win now".
Shaw ultimately played an hour against the Black Cats in which he created four chances, one of which set-up Mkhitaryan to double United's lead moments into the second half, as well as winning 40% of his duels.
