His goal helped United keep pace with their rivals Manchester City at the top of the table. "So we are better this season than last".

"We are happy with the three points, but not too happy with the performance".

The Portuguese manager was harsh in his criticism of the player when he was fit last season, going to the extent of questioning Shaw's understanding of the game despite an impressive cameo off the bench during their draw against Everton.

"But this is nothing". It's just a start. A hard period with an accumulation of matches that comes in October.

Phil Jones admitted Manchester United were not good enough against Southampton despite coming away from St Mary's with a 1-0 win. "I am very pleased with his attitude overall, which means it's easier (for him) to play well", Mourinho added.

"And also Chris Smalling", he said. "We did what many teams in the Premier League do for 90 minutes, which was play with five defenders at the back".

"Some he did amazingly well, others not so well but he was always trying and that commitment and happiness on the pitch is always important".

Chelsea new boy Alvaro Morata was faced with a similar situation with Blues fans, who made up a chant for him, but inclusive of a derogatory line regarding Tottenham.

Mourinho, who was sent to the stands in the dying minutes by referee Craig Pawson after he was summoned by the fourth official, says the result was all that mattered. They (United) realised that we were playing well and they defended. They're not the best team but they know how to win.

United reiterated their condemnation of the crude chant about Lukaku after it was aired again during Saturday's match.

The song, which references the perceived size of Lukaku's manhood, was deemed "offensive and discriminatory" by Kick It Out in a letter to United.
