Jose Mourinho: 'My squad will be tested'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic MANCHESTER UNITED Zlatan Ibrahimovic Man Utd striker is role model to young players
Pammachio Corsino | 29 Agosto, 2017, 05:42

After the free-scoring affairs in the opening two games of this season in which United put four past West Ham and Swansea, Jose Mourinho was pleased with the resilience and persistence his team showed in breaking down "the blue wall" Leicester had put up. And Manchester United will only get better from here.

Mourinho hinted Ibrahimovic would be included in the 25-man Champions League squad when it is submitted next week ahead of games against Benfica, Basel and CSKA Moscow.

"We've got pace, we've got power, but we've also got quality players".

"There's been too much chopping and changing for a real partnership to form".

Former club captain Robson told PA Sport: "It always depends on injuries throughout the year, but as far as I am concerned since Sir Alex left this is probably the strongest squad that I've seen".

The Portuguese added that his team's excellent start to the season - with 10 goals scored and three clean sheets - was a result of "excellent preparations in pre-season in a attractive atmosphere in Los Angeles". They defended very well.


"Zlatan is going to arrive to a team that, I don't say is the end product, but he is going to arrive mid-season with the team playing in a certain way and with players having what I call the functional links in the dynamic of the team". Meanwhile Liverpool, who crushed Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield on Sunday, have collected seven points from their three matches.

Against Leicester, substitute Marcus Rashford scored the key goal to break the deadlock - replacing Juan Mata in the second half while the fortuitous second goal came not long after, thanks to a productive combination of substitutes Jesse Lingard and Marouane Fellaini.

"So if he comes here and he proves he is the best, he plays".

"The team is playing very well - they are very confident and are playing great football".

The England man has slipped down the pecking order quite drastically at Old Trafford, finding himself behind Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, with Marcos Rojo nearing a return to full fitness.

The organized Foxes were resolutely holding on well into the second half, containing United's attacking juggernaut while threatening on the counter attack. "I have to say that [Chris] Smalling is in a very good condition, I have also to say that Victor [Lindelof] is improving every day", he said.
