Manchester United's Jose Mourinho declares Premier League toughest EVER!

Marouane Fellaini came on to kick-off Manchester United's Champions League campaign with a goal in a 3-0 win over Basle

Romelu Lukaku will struggle to match Wayne Rooney's Man Utd records, says Jose Mourinho

United have started in fantastic form in Mourinho's second season, now topping both the Premier League and UEFA Champions League Group A. The Reds have scored at least two goals in every game since the start of the league campaign.

"That power belongs to every club in the Premier League, so the teams are potentially strong".

"I think sometimes in this country the word "legend" comes too easily".

Following three successive defeats Koeman has called for more from his senior campaigners and after making six changes for the Europa League loss to Atalanta on Thursday, the likes of Ashley Williams, Idrissa Gueye and Davy Klaassen can be expected to be recalled along with goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

As for Everton, from which everyone expects at least a fight at the top of the standings, after the sale Lukaku not only lost the team's top scorer last season, but with it and effectiveness. "That way it is easy because you don't have to think a lot", Mourinho said. "It is the most hard country in which to win the title". Romelu's team plays different football and the confidence levels are different and it is a team in the second year of its evolution in some aspects.

"He's a Everton player now and I'm not going to speak about Wayne more than I already have". We couldn't be happier (with him).

Mourinho has kept faith with Fellaini and continues to back him, with the midfielder an option to replace the injured Paul Pogba on Sunday. Like (Phil) Jones, he made a bad mistake for Stoke's second goal.

So life goes on, and that's the way I did it last season with Fellaini.

"You just have to respect the player's desire, and what they decide".
