Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has told his critics to calm down and take it easy, after beating Tottenham 1-0 on Saturday.

Mourinho replaced Marcus Rashford with Anthony Martial after 70 minutes against Spurs, and the decision was greeted by unhappy fans who booed the manager.

However, the sub paid off as Martial slotted home the lone goal of the game from Romelu Lukaku's flicked header.

"Some people speak too much, calm down, relax a little bit.

“Don't speak too much, speak, speak, speak, relax. Relax a little bit, don't be so nervous. Don't be so excited.

"If the result is 0-0 or 1-1 my feelings with the players would be the same because they gave absolutely everything, every ball was like the most important ball of their career," said the United boss.

United is now sitting in 2nd spot on the EPL table, and are five points clear of leaders Manchester City.
