Jose Mourinho claims Man United are improving at the back



Improving at the back
Jose Mourinho thinks his Manchester United side are improving.
After asking for a centre back in the summer – and being denied one, things haven’t looked good for United.
However, the club are doing better since Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof were paired together.
Mourinho said to Sky Sports:“The team as a team is resolving the defensive problems better than before, I don’t want to say it was Eric Bailly or Phil Jones and now Smalling and Lindelof.
“I think the team is more compact, more solid. The spirit, the cooperation, the empathy and communication have all improved in the team. Good results bring confidence.
“We are as improving as a team I don’t want to say it has the name of Chris or Victor.” SWANSEA, WALES – OCTOBER 24: Victor Lindelof of United in action during the Carabao Cup Fourth Round match between Swansea City and Manchester United at Liberty Stadium on October 24, 2017 in Swansea, Wales.

Top four aims
Mourinho made it clear at the start of the season that he thought his side would struggle.
That has been the case, with the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool leading the way.
United did manage to get back to winning ways against Burnley before the international break.
Since then, they’ve looked far better.
