​Man Utd boss Mourinho lauds 'crucial triangle' in Burnley win

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho praised his 'crucial triangle' after a 2-o win away to Burnley.

Following two straight losses in the league, the Portuguese opted for a centre-back pairing of Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling and protected them with Marouane Fellaini in a defensive midfield role.

"The pace with the ball and the organisation without the ball [was very good]," said Mourinho.

"Also, the tactical approach, the concentration of a crucial triangle - Fellaini, Lindelof and Smalling - the creativity in midfield and then the intensity moving the ball.

"And in the last 10/15 minutes even when we played at less speed and at less intensity for the counter-attack I thought the performance was very good."
