Jose Mourinho reveals why he won't select Diogo Dalot for Wolves

Manchester United Real Madrid Mauro Icardi

Nuno, who was part of the Porto squad that won the Champions League in 2004 under Mourinho, will take on his former manager when his Wolves side play Manchester United at Old Trafford.

"Because Martial played 90 minutes [against Young Boys] and Sanchez played zero", Mourinho said according to Goal.

That form has lifted United ahead of Saturday's clash against Wolves, yet growing optimism is underpinned by the manager's sustained belief - first uttered in pre-season as transfer frustration grew - that this will be a tough campaign.

United host Wolves on Saturday with the chance to win four games in a row for the first time since January, and Mourinho said he is confident his team have improved from last season.

The Red Devils have managed to recover from a hard start to the Premier League season to ease pressure on Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho believes they're now benefiting from Paul Pogba's World Cup triumph.

Pressed on whether the 29-year-old needed to raise his game.

In return, the Molineux chief said: "For me, it's an honour that Mourinho speaks about me".

"Tomorrow, it is two good teams trying to achieve the best result possible".

"But I think the work being done at Wolves is good because is not just about Portuguese influence, a Portuguese manager, staff and players".

"Now we have a lot of confidence, we are in a great moment, so I think it is possible (to earn a win) if we do what we were doing last match".

Manchester United ease to a resounding 3-0 win against Young Boys in their opening Champions League fixture in Switzerland on Wednesday night.

"But he showed for the ones that don't know him very, ver well that he is not a player to be here just on formation, is a player to be here [to fight for] positions - he's a very good player". "He plays Tuesday again", Mourinho was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
