Mourinho: Versatility Will Help United In Title Push

The £90m summer signing from Everton scored his third Premier League goal for Manchester United in two appearances as his new team beat Swansea 4-0 at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

"The lads who go to cover United say the mood has changed completely; among fans, among players, backroom staff".

Speaking on Premier League Tonight on BT Sport, Gerrard said: "I think they've got the squad to compete for the title now but they can improve in certain areas". I think he has a good connection on the pitch with Paul (Pogba), with Romelu (Lukaku).

If you bet £25 on any player to top the table at the end of the season, we'll give a £5 free bet every-time they score in the competition.


United only once scored four or more goals in a Premier League game last season.

This season we will get used to seeing Jose Mourinho nodding his head in approval as it looks like he has a nasty smell under his nose.

Mkhitaryan provided assists for Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial as Jose Mourinho's side cruised to a 4-0 victory, their second in as many matches.

Many eyebrows were raised when Matic joined United earlier this month and several theories have since done the rounds, with Blues legend Frank Lampard suggesting that the Serbian midfielder had forced through the move against manager Antonio Conte's best wishes. Let's try to exploit the fragile moment of the opponent and I think this is confidence.


"Of course he wants to play, he wants to start, he wants to be selected for the national team and go to the World Cup".

At this stage, Swansea were wilting and United took full advantage with a fourth goal from substitute Martial, who curled the ball into the far corner after the home side's defence had allowed him to run towards goal.

But Mourinho - quick to point out that United won their opening two fixtures last season and finished sixth - is determined to keep his players' feet on the ground.

"We had team spirit last year, but this year we're having a little bit of luck, we've started very well".
