Nuno: Wolves will stick to their guns at Manchester United

Share

After a poor start to the season where Jose Mourinho's men lost two of the first three Premier League fixtures, the team won consecutive away games - at Burnley and Watford - and won at Young Boys in the Champions League. A hard season for sure.

"You see the level of the teams - you see Liverpool squad, City squad, Chelsea squad, Tottenham squad, Arsenal improving". It's going to be hard.

"Obviously it's not going to be easy, but we've got to get through this group".

And a lot of the admiration for that has to go to the manager, for getting the mentality right, and to the players for accepting that it can't always be the manager's fault, it's easy to hide behind other people and, with someone as big as Mourinho, players can try to hide behind him, let him take the flak, so it's good that they made a decision to step up.

A resurgent Luke Shaw, returning from the head injury he picked up on global week, continued his excellent start to the season at left-back, while debutant Diogo Dalot impressed on the opposite side of the United defence. All of them, they can say the same thing.

Three wins out of three in September has seen Manchester United return to "normal" after August defeats brought early-season worry, and normally you'd expect them to comfortably see off a newly-promoted team at home. Sure the former Juventus man hasn't always lived up to his billing since his move back to Old Trafford two summers ago but Souness goes beyond anything else.

United's 3-0 win over Young Boys in the Champions League in Bern on Wednesday night was not completely straightforward, with the visitors on the back foot before Pogba emerged to score twice in the final 10 minutes of the first half.

"I think it is [a mental thing]", he said. Also a little bit of a fear in the duels. "He's a very good player".

"I think the team as a team is resolving the defensive problems better than before", he said.

Explaining his decision not to field him on Saturday, Mourinho said he would only call on Dalot to play when "totally fresh" while he adapts to life at his new club.

"It's more about the moment and the momentum is very important in the positive and negative way".
