Owen Hargreaves Challenges Young Manchester United Duo to Emulate Liverpool Sensations

Manchester United's Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot controls the ball during the UEFA Champions League group H football match between Young Boys and Manchester United at The Stade

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.

The right-back's debut was delayed while he recovered from knee surgery but he looked assured as he made his first appearance for the club on Wednesday in a 3-0 Champions League victory over Swiss club Young Boys.

"I think is hard enough, he doesn't need to face more difficulty from the accumulation of matches".

"So, I think if they think the season is going to be easy for them, I think they are wrong, but I don't think they are wrong because they all know the season is going to be hard".

"This promises to be the game of the weekend and one I feel United will edge". The Centre-back hasn't featured for Manchester United this term.

Nuno Espirito Santo has named an unchanged team in their opening five Premier League games, which has seen them earn nine points.

"I am not saying that we are going to have more points than last season because last season we collected a very acceptable number of points". Following their trip to Switzerland and with Wolves flying, this fixture could be coming at just the wrong time for Mourinho's men and I'm going to take them on modestly.

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

Mourinho believes his team will be better this campaign than they were last, when they finished a distant second to Manchester City. "We love the game", said Nuno - who has undoubtedly been the biggest success.

The Chile star will replace Anthony Martial, who scored his first goal in eight months against Young Boys, even though Mourinho admitted that Sanchez has yet to hit top form.

City missed Guardiola's presence on the sideline this week, and for all the talk in the early part of the season that Mourinho was a distraction and a problem, whatever he has said, he has that team behind him now.

"I think this is more the influence of the moment".

"Every player has another level to step up", he said. Football is a little bit like this.

Explaining his decision not to field him on Saturday, Mourinho said he would only call on Dalot to play when "totally fresh" while he adapts to life at his new club.
