“The manager brought some happiness, the players are playing well and the team is very strong now,” the Spaniard told Sky Sports.

“We know how to control the games, how to keep the ball, how to create chances, and that’s very good for us.

“We won the game against a top team, we controlled the first half but in the second half they had chances. I don’t even remember some of the saves so I can’t pick a best.

“This is the real Manchester United.”
