Mourinho: We should’ve finished Watford off

De Gea - coveted by Real Madrid until they signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea - gave a non-commital answer when asked about whether he will pledge his long-term future to United who have opened talks over a new contract.

De Gea has been in typically excellent form of late, playing a key role in United's weekend win at Watford, but he received some criticism in Spain this summer, after the national team suffered a disappointing World Cup campaign. And I repeat, Marouane [Fellaini] is really important for them in two hard matches, matches of two-against-two, because Burnley and Watford play two strikers, two powerful strikers. He is now contracted at Old Trafford until the end of the season, with the option to extend for another year.

"Normally I focus on my job and focus on trying to help my team and trying to improve every training session and try to be as a good as I can".

"I never listen to stupid things like this they say".

The Red Devils slipped out of Europe's premier club competition at the last-16 stage last season, with there a determination on their part to make more of an impact at 2018-19.

"We are not used to playing on artificial grass so it's going to be a bit different".

They face Switzerland's Young Boys of Bern on Wednesday in their first group game of this season's competition. "It's such a special competition".

Chris Smalling is hoping to turn his World Cup disappointment into a positive by re-establishing himself at Manchester United.

The Hornets came back into the contest after the restart and halved the deficit through Andre Gray on 65 minutes to make life hard for United, who had Nemanja Matic sent off in the final minute. "We want to start well, winning games and try to win the competition but we know it's always hard to win".

Martial hasn't started many games under Jose Mourinho this season and was a substitute in our 2-1 win over Watford. Mourinho said: "He's selected but I just want to remind you we can only start with 11 so when you see the team you could try to speak about the ones that are going to play and not the ones that are not going to play".
