Man City’s Reserves Could Win Premier League Title, Says Mourinho

"Within the team and the club we're feeling very confident and we don't feel that negativity that you're talking about".

But the 21-year-old faces his biggest season yet after the £73.75million sale of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan on Thursday confirmed his place as United's number one striker.

When asked what would be success for United this season, he said: "As a start, winning the Europa League".

"When you haven't got the correct answers from the players you wanted to have it's like: 'hmmm there is doubt.' Most of the time there's no doubt so then you'd rather trust the ones we have".

"When I looked at the bench yesterday [Saturday] and the players that were not even involved, I believe even their B team could fight for the title".

Solskjaer continued: "As I said earlier last season as well, it's not about a quick fix, it's a long rebuild".

"It's not just me. Solskjaer is still learning a lot himself, but as a player, he would have learnt from the best in how to keep egos in check and take the responsibilities of managing the team". "It's just the next step".

"We are speaking about United that finished sixth and Arsenal that finished fifth".

"It's about putting those experiences together now", said Rashford. Right now I feel like mentally and physically I'm more prepared to do it than in the past, especially physically.

"Sometimes in football unbelievable things can happen, but we are speaking about a team that last season won everything, we are speaking about the European champions, we are speaking about the European runners-up".

"We hadn't had much rest and it was tough trying to start the season off quickly".

Mourinho will now be a part of the Premier League set up in his new football expert cum commentator avatar and will make his maiden appearance in this role when his former club Manchester United meet Chelsea on Sunday.

"In the Premier League, obviously the dressing room must feel that they can win the title".

"For me, they have not had a good transfer window".
