Height matters for Jose Mourinho's Manchester United

Highlights Bournemouth 0-0 Leicester

Many will point to their late scoring for "inflating" the scorelines, but numerous best teams take a lead and then feast late on as the opposition chase or tire.

He oversaw six very convincing wins and one draw, and are now second in the table, with Man City in first position thanks only to a marginally better goal difference.

Matic added: "We cannot be relaxed for the future because we have to win more, focus because the teams now know how we play, the teams know our formation, our players and, of course, in the future those will want to show they can play against Manchester United".

The "Special One" is now building his prototype team with Manchester United.

Mourinho will remember how United only began to get a foothold in the first Manchester derby of last season when Herrera came on at half-time.

"I see them win duels, they are so quick on the counter-attack, they have already convinced they can do it in that way".

And it's exactly from Portugal where Manchester United's next Champions League opponents are coming, since the Red Devils will be playing Benfica on October 18th for the third fixture of the group stage.




United, City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham have always been credited with a serious interest in overhauling the current distribution system of overseas TV revenue, arguing that they are the driving force of the Premier League's appeal outside the UK.

Arsenal haven't won the Premier League title since 2003-04 but the Gunners finished in second place in the table but 10 points behind Leicester City in 2016.

United return from the worldwide break with a trip to Anfield to take on their bitter rivals.

"I don't think they've taken a big enough one for me but I do think they've moved in the right direction". Even Marouane Fellaini, long maligned by United fans, has been getting in on the act.

In short then, United have looked exceptionally good in games they struggled in last season, but it's too early to tell if they are really the title challengers Mourinho needs them to be.

The question of who has the upper hand right now between the two Manchester clubs is no doubt answered by the fact that United are yet to be properly tested, and also the fact that City have been tested, and have come away unscathed.
