Cape Town - Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has dedicated Sunday's 1-0 win over Tottenham at Old Trafford to to the unpopular Marouane Fellaini.

A resurgent Henrikh Mkhitaryan fired the Red Devils to all three points, before the Belgian's late substitute appearance drew boos from the home crowd.

"I want to dedicate this victory to Fellaini because he deserves it," Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"In the last match (Everton), it was him that was involved in the loss of two points (conceding a penalty) and that's why I want to make it clear he is an important player for me."

"I accept it because from the fans you have to accept everything and especially fans that are giving so much to us without getting so much from us.

"The only things they are getting from us is honesty, professionalism, dedication, but they are not getting the results they expect from us.

"They are so supportive, they can also be big critics, and I think the point was that they have in their mind the mistake that Marouane made at Everton and no more than that."
