Man United and Mourinho told success is down to two players only

Lukaku is Manchester United's top scorer this season having made a blistering start to life at Old Trafford with 7 goals in 7 games, while on the Road to Russian Federation he's scored 12 goals in 15 games.

"I like to play against the best teams, I like to play against the best clubs and I like to play at the best stadiums - the stadiums with more history", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

Jose Mourinho and Manchester United owe their success this season to two players according to Gerry Francis, who says that the signings they made in the summer have changed them as a team. We just trust the players that are going to help'.

De Bruyne registered 18 assists in the 2016-17 campaign for Pep Guardiola's side, more than any other player in the top flight, and he has started the new campaign in similar style.

Bertrand, 27, spent much of his early 20s on loan away from Stamford Bridge, but despite starting in Chelsea's Champions League final win over Bayern Munich in 2012, Mourinho allowed the England left-back to leave permanently for Southampton in 2014.

The £75m striker took only 12 minutes to take his tally for club and country this season to 16 - he has scored in nine games in a row - but Mourinho was dismayed he was used at all, given Belgium were 3-0 up, he had missed their weekend game with Bosnia, and the importance of United's game at Anfield. We have our objectives for the season, we know where we want to go and how we have to go.

That has happened to a series of Premier League managers this time around.

He shone in Serie A, scoring 15 goals and claiming 11 assists last season at Roma and persuading Liverpool to pay £34m for his signature. Fellaini has appeared in seven games for United and has netted four goals.

'If he [Lukaku] plays tonight it is because he has recovered.'

"Romelu Lukaku is fit", the former Everton boss said.
