Jose Mourinho seemingly asks Michael Carrick what Manchester United fans were chanting


Mourinho is delighted United's season is still alive on two fronts and while he is desperate to win the Europa League to qualify for the Champions League, he won't give up qualifying through the Premier League.

Thirteen minutes earlier Zlatan Ibrahimovic had given United the lead with a powerful low finish.

NAIJ.com can report that Sebastian Larsson was the major culprit for the hosts after picking up an embarrassing red card for a bad tackle on Frenchman Paul Pogba.

United extended their unbeaten record to 21 league games and climbed to fifth place in the table, four points below fourth-place Manchester City, who have played a game more.

David Moyes's efforts to get the better of the Old Trafford club who sacked him three years ago were not helped by Seb Larsson's controversial 43rd-minute sending off by Craig Pawson for an admittedly slightly high challenge on Ander Herrera.

"I took Shaw off because of the yellow card and the pressure from the crowd", he told BBC Sport.

Moyes said: "We'll have a look at it".

LONDON (AP) — After 30 minutes of Sunday's Premier League game against Sunderland, Manchester United appeared in danger of meandering its way to another disappointing result.

"The Europa League is the most important competition for us because we can win that, but we are still fighting in the league", said Mourinho, who revealed Antonio Valencia is the only injured player likely to be available for Thursday's trip to Anderlecht. "We're still fighting for the top four and we can win the Europa League - although it's as hard as finishing fourth". "We resisted the results of yesterday when Manchester City and Liverpool won, they left us in a position of "yes" or "no".

"David has a little problem so he is not travelling", Mourinho said.

Is that the end of Sunderland's Premier League survival hopes? As the travelling United fans went through their brilliant array of chants for departed players, Mourinho was perplexed by one in particular.

The midfielder has now made his return to the starting XI to Jose Mourinho's side in one of five changes made by the Portuguese manager for the match against Sunderland.

A sluggish match sparked to life when Victor Anichebe turned well inside the box only to be hauled to the ground as his strike was kept out by Sergio Romero.
