Valencia and Juventus are the other teams in Manchester United's Champions League pool. The duo have played in the three successive wins at Burnley, Watford and in Switzerland but Mourinho claims they have not yet established themselves as his first-choice pairing.
"I wonder if he trains properly every day, that's a bit of a stab in the dark at one of the things that could improve, but I don't see him having improved at all since the day he arrived [back at United]". I don't want to say was [Eric] Bailly or [Phil] Jones and is now Smalling or Lindelöf.
"I think the team is resolving the defensive problems better than before", Mourinho said. We had the result we wanted, maybe the performance should be better, but we have the result and three points.
Mourinho will be without suspended Marcus Rashford and Nemanja Matic against Wolves, who have lost just one of their first five matches to sit ninth in the table. Joe Hart got me that time but I won't do the same mistake.
'But the team is finding stability and confidence levels are important. The young ones are young boys with good potential and you can see the work of the coaching staff and the team is a really good team. "Apart from that, we go with everything we have and we have to try to win".
"Now I can say, I don't understand how you can play the best club competition on artificial pitch", said Mourinho, who had declined to comment on the surface before the game. But even then I didn't think about it. He didn't come direct to the Premier League, he came to the Championship, so he earned the right to be a Premier League manager.
