Martin Keown: Man United rebuilding Old Trafford aura
The Arsenal legend believes Jose Mourinho has successfully restored Manchester United's aura at Old Trafford
Martin Keown has credited Jose Mourinho with helping Manchester United to rebuild their Old Trafford aura.
The Red Devils were 2-0 winners against Portuguese side Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday night despite producing an uninspiring performance.
Manchester United edged to a 1-0 victory over title rivals Tottenham Hotspur last weekend after Anthony Martial came off the bench to score an 81st-minute winner.
The 20-time English champions have won all five of their Premier League games at Old Trafford following a return of 15 goals and five successive clean sheets.
Manchester United have also won both of their Champions League games at Old Trafford thanks to a 3-0 win against Basel and 2-0 victory over Benfica.
Former Arsenal defender Keown believes Manchester United are starting to reclaim their invincibility at Old Trafford under the Portuguese coach.
“United are starting to rebuild that aura they used to have at Old Trafford,” Keown told the Daily Mail.
“They have won all eight of their fixtures there in all competitions this season and are yet to concede at home in the Premier League.”
Manchester United will make the trip to defending Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.
The Red Devils signed Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic in the summer transfer window.
The 20-time English champions finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season but won the League Cup and the Europa League.
