The left-back has struggled to live up to expectations at Manchester United due to his injuries over the past few years, but is now back to full fitness and willing to make up for lost time.

It was set up in part by 18-year-old Dutchman Tahith Chong, making his first senior appearance, with a fantastic cross from the right. "He came with the intention to show himself and in a moment when we had no strikers on the pitch, after Anthony Martial had left, we needed people to create and have some initiative, which he did".

"The action for the cross for the goal is a attractive action".

"The captain was Valencia last season, I think he's going to be the captain", Mourinho replied, when asked if he made a decision on who wears the armband. He was enthusiastic, he was confident to play.
