Jose Mourinho: 'Nuno Espirito Santo deserves his chance in Premier League'

Man Utd Rio Ferdinand

GETTY Man Utd have had their Champions League hopes dashed by Rio Ferdinand

It has been a odd few weeks for Manchester United and Mourinho, who, having lost two of their opening three games of the season and being tipped for the sack, have bounced back to win their last three games.

Mourinho declared that Dalot, 19, was the best young full-back in Europe after signing him from Porto for £19 million (US$25 million) in June.

Dalot grabbed headlines with his exciting performance in Manchester United's 3-0 win over Young Boys on Wednesday night and many now want him to make his Premier League debut as well.

"You see the level of the teams - you see the Liverpool squad, City squad, Chelsea squad, Tottenham squad, Arsenal improving".

"With Pogba, it's all about him and his game".

Despite that strong display, Mourinho said he would leave the teenager out of his line-up to face Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday, instead selecting him for Tuesday's League Cup third-round home tie against Championship side Derby. That's easy. It isn't even a question.

'I think we are going to be a better team. That comes from training every day, you've got to show the manager that you want (to play).

Jimmy Butler Requests Trade From Minnesota Timberwolves
The Knicks may not be interested in trading for Butler, based on statements made by general manager Steve Mills on Monday. Throughout the upcoming season, there will be conflicting reports about Butler and Leonard.

Manchester United are aiming to be one of the main contenders for the title this season after they finished second and without a trophy last term under Jose Mourinho. Having started so well, Nuno Santo's men can view this encounter as a bit of a free hit and I suspect he'll urge them to play with their usual flair and confidence.

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

And after last Sunday's defeat, in which he was kept very busy, Burnley keeper, Joe Hart, claimed Wolves were the best promoted side he'd ever faced.

With the arrival of Naby Keita and Fabinho during the summer transfer window, many expected Milner to play a limited role this season but he is one of the first names on the team sheet.

"There's a player in there, but I don't think he's getting the most out of himself", Souness added. We are going to play better than we did but I think it's going to be a very hard season.

However, according to the Mirror, Barcelona are still very keen to acquire his services and are set to keep a close eye on him in every single match until the end of the campaign.
