Manchester United manager José Mourinho believes that his side can do even better after defeating Crystal Palace 4-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The Manchester club continued its winning form this weekend; however, the United boss believes his players still have room to improve their collective performance.
“Three points were very important,” said Mourinho after the match.
“I told the players we had to respect and play seriously against an opponent in a difficult situation but are better than the results are saying.
“Probably the result is bigger than our performance because I don’t think our performance was consistent. We had good periods, good moments, always control of the game,” continued the Portuguese manager.
“But I think we could do better, but the important thing are the three points, that’s it.”
United got off the mark quickly against Palace with Juan Mata putting Mourinho’s side up 1-nil in the third minute.
The Spaniard’s early strike was followed by a brace from midfielder Marouane Fellaini.
New arrival Romelu Lukaku continued his scoring run when he capped off the game with a close-range finish in the 86th minute.
As they head into the second international break of the season, the Red Devils sit second in the Premier League table behind Manchester City.
Mourinho’s men have captured 19 of a possible 21 points in the league and only trail their Blue neighbours on goal differential.
After the break United will travel to Anfield to face arch-rivals Liverpool on October 14th.
