Mourinho thought about title rivals, but not Manchester City

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson: Players see light at end of tunnel

Jose Mourinho's Red Devils now share the Premier League's top spot with rivals Manchester City, having taken 13 points from a possible 15 so far.

Herrera was a key part of Jose Mourinho's team last season as United won the Community Shield, the League Cup and the Europa League. During the summer, he oversaw an investment of £226m as Danilo, Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Ederson were added to his squad.

Manchester United's have received a complaint about their own fans from the "kick it out" campaign regarding an allegedly offensive and racist chant.

The Premier League title pace is now being set by two arch-rivals, with only alphabetical order splitting them at the top of the standings.

"We will try to be there but they have spent the biggest money in the league". 'I know the quality of the Championship and I know if we don't take it seriously, we are going to lose'.

"I thought I would get a lot of game time here, more than I possibly would at Manchester United, and that was a massive factor in my decision".

"I don't know if it is 12 weeks or 12 days, honestly", the Portuguese said after United's 4-0 win over Everton in the Premier League on Sunday. We won three last season so they have more obligation than us. How good is David now?

"We are happy, for sure, but we keep the euphoria away from the dressing room", he said.

"It was a very good match, a bit hard, but happily we won", Mkhitaryan said.

I backed City to win the title before the season started and I wouldn't go back on that now, but I am no more confident now because United have really impressed me.

Last season's player of the year Ander Herrera made a comeback into the setup after Pogba's injury and performed well for Mourinho.

"I can learn from Nemanja and from Felly [Fellaini], he has some abilities that we don't have in midfield".

Jose Mourinho is set to break an incredible record held by Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
