Manchester United cruise to victory at Sunderland

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he will look to bolster his Manchester United squad with attacking talent in the summer transfer window.

Red Devils veteran Michael Carrick came to his manager's rescue - explaining the origin of the chant, which includes the lyrics "he came from Uruguay, he made the scousers cry".

Jose Mourinho branded Sunderland as a "sad" team as Manchester United won 3-0 at the Stadium of Light.

Equally importantly for Mourinho, his depleted squad sustained no fresh injuries as they step up their preparations for the midweek Europa League quarter-final first-leg trip to Anderlecht in a competition which offers a Champions League place to the eventual winners.

Despite that, more than enough folk on Twitter seemed to think the United boss was asking about the song being sung by the away supporters at that particular moment. "It was important for us to win and that was the main objective", said Mourinho. The young England player has found himself the subject of sustained criticism from United's manager but Mourinho made a point of praising Shaw's performance and pointed out his withdrawal in the second half was precautionary due to an earlier yellow card.

"Most of the players in Manchester United are young - we are here to learn", the 22-year-old said.

"We were hanging in the game and trying to do our best".

"Before the match against Rostov we played with 10 men for about an hour".

Manchester United power rankings: Who's in form and who must improve? "Sometimes it's more hard but sometimes it gives you the advantage because you have one more". "The Premier League was not possible because we drew too many matches".

Sunderland remains bottom having now failed to score in its last seven games, 10 points adrift of safety. "The opportunities are coming, but not in a way that if he doesn't perform especially well he doesn't come back into the team again, it's just the process of education, education as a player obviously, and today is an opportunity to play".

"After Liverpool and Manchester City's victories, if we didn't win today it's nearly mathematically impossible (to finish fourth)".

United labored through a subdued opening 30 minutes before Ibrahimovic, as he has done many times this season, took matters into his own hands.

Demarai Gray released Islam Slimani to level in the fourth minute and six minutes later Marc Albrighton's free-kick from wide on the left embarrassed Joel Robles to put Leicester ahead.
