Jose Mourinho praised French winger Anthony Martial on Friday for his improved attitude and on-field performances in Manchester United's strong start to the season.

Chelsea, three points back in third place, will look to keep pace with the leaders when they visit Stoke City.

Shaw missed the end of last season with an ankle injury, but has returned to action for United's Under-23 outfit over the last couple of weeks.

The France worldwide is locked in a battle with Marcus Rashford to start on the left of Mourinho's front three this season, but he has still scored four goals in seven games, including one in a man-of-the-match performance against Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Manchester United, who trail City on goal difference, face what should be a much more hard test away at Southampton.

Mourinho made nine changes to the side that hammered Everton weekend as Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial scored United's goals, while Burton boss Nigel Clough, battling Championship survival, made nine changes to reduce the tie to virtual reserve clash status.

Pep Guardiola's men have won five straight games overall, including a 6-0 league thrashing of Watford last week that was their biggest away victory since 1968.

Jose Mourinho: "Martial was good, Mata was good, Lingard was good".

"I want the players to think the same way".

The fact Burton view the early weeks of the league season as more important than a trip to Old Trafford highlights the issues with a competition that Mourinho believes could be dispensable. Well, the French starlet conducted his first English post-match interview for Manchester United after they beat Burton Albion.

The only problem Mourinho is having is who to pick, and that is a problem he is very happy to have.

Mourinho was also impressed with how committed his players are to helping the team succeed.

"It does not look too good at the moment but I know we are more than good enough to turn this around", Gylfi Sigurdsson told the club's website.
