ďIím a United fan, and I want to see them win the title, but I fear itís going to be very difficult for that to happen this season. In the meantime, Manchester City look stronger than ever and Liverpool have improved again. I canít see past City and Liverpool as the top two ó and to say that about the two clubs who wouldnít be top of any United fanís Christmas card list is horrendous.Ē

"There seems to be a lot of negativity around United at the moment, and that doesnít bode well. The manager is obviously not happy about the signings he hasnít been able to make and not having certain players available on their pre-season tour, which isnít nice to hear if you are a young kid trying to make your mark on the fringes of the squad. Harry Maguire did great at the World Cup, but of the players potentially available he would not be my first choice. I would go for Alderweireld, all day long, because he is suited to the way United play. But it will take more than a quality defender to galvanise them, and this is where you have to respect Mourinhoís track record and his history of winning trophies.Ē
