Mourinho's pragmatism transforming Manchester United

In a fantastic display of class, Romelu Lukaku embraced Svilar, who has since revealed what his fellow countryman told him. "He just said, "You don't have to worry, just keep working and you'll be okay".

"At the beginning, it was odd for me because I didn't know I could play that position but slowly, the manager explained to me how to do it".

"We had a little bit of a strategy, especially on set-pieces to make him uncomfortable".

"Phil Jones was on the bench because he felt that if we really needed him, he could [play]", the manager said.

United midfielder Nemanja Matic added that Mourinho had instructed them to test the youngster, who is the son of former Serbia goalkeeper Ratko. "I don't know about Paul, I don't know about Fellaini".

Naturally, Mourinho was only too quick to defend his approach.

"Marcus is one of those players who - I have been to Old Trafford a couple of times this season - as soon as he gets the ball you can feel it in the crowd".

Britain's retail sales down in September
Department store sales grew by 9.4% to account for 14.5% of sales, and food sales by 10.3% (5.3% of retail sales in the sector). This was also weaker than the expected 2.1 percent.

The Red Devils managed a 1-0 victory over Benfica on Wednesday, making it three wins from three games to open up Group A and open up a three-point lead on Basel atop the group.

Despite winning, Mourinho's style has its detractors, including former Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy.

Next up, the Red Devils will collide against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

"And after a lot of hard work, now, I am at Manchester United so I must have done the job well".

Although he can be hard to work with at times, as Matic has revealed, there is no doubt that his methods bring great success to any club he manages.

"Sir Bobby Charlton said it over the years that Mourinho isn't a Man United type of manager".

"Let City get all the credit at the moment and United can go under the radar". "Twelve matches, ten wins, two draws, nine clean sheets".
