Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho expects 'difficult season'

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho expects 'difficult season'

However, it wasn't all good news as Mourinho also told reporters that Ander Herrera is still not ready to make his comeback.

The Portuguese full-back earned the plaudits for an exciting first match for the Reds after having arrived at Old Trafford with a pre-existing injury from FC Porto.

'I am not saying we are going to have more points than last season because last season we collected a very acceptable level of points, ' Mourinho said. What we'll see is two good teams of football trying to achieve the best result possible. "You have to adapt, you have to respect, you have to be humble and recognise you are in the face of a strong team, but you can not be changed or fear".

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last term to secure their best finish since the Sir Alex Ferguson era.

"Difficult pitch, recovered totally and Tuesday play again but he showed for the ones that don't know him very well he is not a player to be here just on formation".

Manchester United lost successive Premier League games following defeats by Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur.

Wolves face one of their toughest challenges yet at the weekend, as they take on Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Some of the top teams are not firing on all cylinders, you could say that about Liverpool, they are getting the job done and United are starting to have that look about then now.

The 27-year-old Mexican global netted the victor - and his second goal of the season - against Burnley last weekend, marking back-to-back victories for Wolves in the Premier League.

The Chile global is yet to score in four games this season and has managed just three in 22 games since arriving from Arsenal.

"Every player has another level to step up", he said. "We love the game", said Nuno - who has undoubtedly been the biggest success. Because Martial play 90 minutes [against Young Boys] and Sanchez played zero'.

'I don't speak with him for quite a long time, to be honest, ' said Mourinho.

'I am optimistic, but a hard season, yes.' Mourinho admitted that the mood can change quickly in football, adding: 'I think good results and good performances make miracles.

"It's more about the moment and the momentum is very important in the positive and negative way".
