Mourinho has praised Juan Mata for saving his United career.

Anthony Martial marked his first Premier League start in nearly a month with a goal and an assist as Manchester United beat Watford 2-0 on Saturday.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claims his side's attacking efforts would be hailed more if someone else was in charge at Old Trafford.

We have to get the best possible result at Old Trafford against Saint-Etienne.

"Before I got the job they were saying at Manchester United you need to play the football in a certain way and I agree totally", Mourinho stated in the same interview.

During a post-game press conference, Man U's manager recalled the time he (while coaching Chelsea) lost 2-1 to the Foxes, which would be his last match while in charge of the Blues.

"Mata's footballing IQ is off the scale".

"Darmian can play left back, right back and an emergency central defender for us, so my choice was Darmian".

"I was not blessed with pace so I always liked to cut inside".
