José Mourinho has ruled out signing a forward next summer, believing he has assembled a Manchester United frontline capable of challenging for trophies, but admitted he must work on “the dynamic” of his side’s attacking play after Alexis Sánchez marked his Old Trafford debut with his first goal for the club.

After the manager opted to leave out the club’s record signing, Paul Pobga, following the 2-0 defeat at Tottenham, United put in a lacklustre first-half display against a weakened Huddersfield side, only to be rescued after the interval by strikes from Romelu Lukaku and Sánchez. The former Arsenal forward began on the left side of an attacking three behind Lukaku but drifted infield, and converted the rebound after Jonas Lössl had saved his penalty.

Mourinho also omitted Anthony Martial from his starting lineup, Juan Mata preferred on the right, with the France international and Marcus Rashford introduced in the second half.
