Marc Skinner says his Manchester United players need “that little bit extra” to win trophies after beating Brighton comfortably to continue a perfect start to the Women’s Super League campaign.
Ella Toone’s double set up a ninth successive home league win, with Leah Galton and Adriana Leon also on target.
Skinner’s side have won three out of three so far without conceding a goal.”We are unbelievable at home because of the fans but we need to make sure we give the opponents nothing,” he said.”
In the first half we were exceptional,” added the manager, who predicted that United will require a flawless season to become champions.”
In the second half, we just have these little moments when we want to score more goals so we become a little bit complacent in terms of how to use the ball to get those goals.
“I am pleased with the energy and commitment from the team. The goals are great.
For this team to win things, we just need that little bit extra.”Toone, who scored twice in the first 26 minutes, set up Galton to slot in five minutes before the break, and summer signing Leon made it four late on.
