Jose Mourinho praised Manchester United’s first-half performance after they ended a two-match losing streak by beating Leicester City.

All United's goals against the champions came in the first half, thanks to a spell of three goals in six minutes shortly before the break.

"It was a very good performance," the United manager told "It's much more difficult to win in such a comfortable way like we did."

Man Utd led by a four-goal margin at half-time in a PL match for the first time since February 2001 v Arsenal (5-1 at half-time, 6-1 at full-time)

"To be back home and beat the champions is good. Last season we couldn't beat them and this season we’ve already beaten them twice."
