Mourinho: "We won comfortably with beautiful, attacking football."


Mourinho pleased with United win over the Hammers.


Anthony Martial and Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored two goals each to help Manchester United seal an EFL Cup semi-final spot. Jose Mourinho served a touchline ban in the Red Devils' 4-1 win over West Ham at Old Trafford on Wednesday night and the United boss expressed his delight at the scoreline and the pleasing performance. He told MUTV after the clash: "We won comfortably with beautiful, attacking football. Goals plus performance equals real happiness.

"I’m pleased with the result, because the performance is something that we’re used to. We are playing very, very well at home and this was more of the same. I think that, after their goal, we had 10 minutes where we felt it.

"The players couldn’t hide that, because West Ham equalised with their first shot, but in the second half the team got the confidence to play again."

The Portuguese continued: "The beauty of our attacking football is more of the same match after match but this time with goals, like against Feyenoord.

"One of the things I proposed to myself was to come to such a club like Manchester United who play the kind of football that people want, because it’s Manchester United tradition, so I’m really happy with that."


Mourinho also gave his side words of encouragement at half-time after Ashley Fletcher cancelled out Zlatan's early opener.

"At half-time, I said ‘forget the [West Ham] goal, we are playing so well’. We had to keep confident and forget the goal, forget the fact that we should be winning. I wanted us to continue with confidence and in the second half we had goals."
