West Brom 1-2 Manchester United

"I think any other season we would be top with the points we have".

Mourinho's formation promised attacking football. The former Crystal Palace boss has overseen two draws and defeats during his brief spell in charge of West Brom, including a well-fought stalemate against Liverpool last week, was keen to lavish praise on Hegazi.

Lukaku (second from right) is surrounded by teammates after scoring United's opening goal on Sunday.

"Lukaku's goal was similar to the goal he scored against Bournemouth", he added. He seemed pleased enough when Lingard doubled United's lead.

"He has got the two goals in the last two games". The Baggies also made some tactical tweaks to come out of half-time looking a more risky side.

"You don't go insane when you win", said the Portuguese, who famously celebrated Porto's qualification for the Champions League quarter-finals with a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in 2004 by sliding across the turf on his knees. Perhaps the experience of last month's 4-2 win over Watford, when they took a 3-0 lead but saw it slip to 3-2, influenced the choice to hold firm rather than putting their foot to the throat, but the decision to shut up shop, more or less, was disappointing - and almost came back to haunt them. It set up a nervous 10 minutes but United held on. The midfielder made up for it over the next fifteen minutes, while Herrera did well to cut out any attacks that came through the middle, and United hung on for victory.

The video of Guardiola's men taunting United over their cautious style of play emerged on social media before United's win at the Hawthorns but Mourinho insisted he is not concerned by it.

Jose Mourinho's mood was dampened in the second half when Antonio Valencia was forced off with a hamstring injury. They built a platform for a big win by going into half-time with a 2-0 lead.

West Brom are now winless in 16 consecutive league games - the longest run in their history. And if they have got any hope at all of producing an unlikely comeback, these are the kind of tricky away trips they need to win.
