Manchester United have secured 10 of 12 points this term and are coming off of a 2-2 draw at Stoke in gameweek 4. With regard to the played matches of the Premier League, so after 4 rounds, Manchester United divide 1st with Man City, but United have the best goal difference.

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.

However, it's quite clear that, in the league at least, Mourinho peaks in his second season.

"I don't say impossible but that was close to impossible to get someone in who will score that amount of goals that Romelu scored for Everton", the Dutchman said, via the Liverpool Echo.

"The economic power belongs to everyone".

"When I arrived in the first season there was already investments made in buying players, changing the squad, selling players, that you probably would have done in a different way".

"But it was always hard for different reasons".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was burdened with much of United's goalscoring responsibility in that time, but Mourinho wants other members of the team to continue to keep the pressure off Lukaku. A striker is very important but last season we had a very good striker for two-thirds of the season and that was not enough to win the title, so it's not just the striker.

This match calls for a historic night like never before, as all-time Manchester United's leading goal-scorer, Wayne Rooney, readies himself to return to the Theatre of Dreams for the first time since leaving in the summer.
