Matic: Mourinho the best I've ever worked with

Monday, 23 Oct, 2017

The first top flight meeting of Huddersfield and Manchester United since 1972 will be the commentary game on Premier League Live with thanks to Sky Sports.

The Portuguese manager has always been under the spotlight when it comes to the press interviews but he took it to another level last night. "We have the same players as we had for the Benfica match". "I played a good game but I could have done better with the goal - it's part of growing up, I can't return it now." he said.

However, he toiled under Jose Mourinho last season and, despite being fully fit, has made just one outing so far this season.

Mourinho instructed his players to put pressure on the stopper, who only turned 18 in August, from set pieces in the hope that he would make an error which might prove so very crucial.

Jose Mourinho: "I never speak about injuries". "You can't moan at this minute, it's all going to plan".

That sent some fans into meltdown with their boy wonder potentially looking at some time on the sidelines.

"I don't want to talk about the goals of the club, but when I mention Manchester United I think the ambitions are clear to everyone".

Of their remaining three games in the group stage, United will play two at home and could clinch a spot in the knockout stage for the first time since 2014 if they beat Benfica at Old Trafford in two weeks and CSKA Moscow fail to win in Switzerland against Basel.

United trail leaders Manchester City by two points and will likely need a win against Huddersfield to keep pace with Pep Guardiola's side.

But he's shown he's got a lot of potential in the game and could well join Lukaku in the first team sooner rather than later.

The 25-year-old impressed for the Red Devils in their goalless draw against Liverpool at Anfield.
