Alexis Sanchez will play for Manchester United against Wolves after Anthony Martial played 90 minutes in the Champions League, says Jose Mourinho. "Yes, yes, yes. Not only me, I think a lot of managers after that achieved and got the chance to come to the Premier League because they were related to Mourinho", Nuno said with Marco Silva, Andre Villas-Boas and Carlos Carvalhal all having managed in the Premier League and all having had a link to, or friendship with, Mourinho.

But Mourinho said his pre-season assessment has not changed. "It's going to be hard".

"You see the strength of the teams - Liverpool's squad, City's squad, Chelsea's squad, Tottenham's squad, Arsenal improving - it's going to be hard", said Mourinho, whose side finished 19 points behind Manchester City last season.

"Not just for us, also for the others because the others they can say exactly the same as I am saying and they can say "oh, Manchester United, good team, good squad, City good squad, good team".

"If they think the season is going to be easy for them then I think they are wrong".

"I think good results, good performances, they make miracles and bad results and bad performances, they make you look more exhausted, more upset, more ugly, more everything", Mourinho said. "Football is a little bit like this".

'Every player has another level to step up, ' said the manager.

"Very far from the problems that a team normally has coming from the Championship".

Instead, Dalot will be given another opportunity against Derby in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

'I want him to play totally fresh, ' said Mourinho.

'Playing for Manchester United is hard enough for a kid of 19 coming from another country after an important injury and surgery.

'I don't speak with him for quite a long time, to be honest, ' said Mourinho.

"To have an important injury and a surgery is hard enough, he doesn't need more difficulties from the accumulation of matches".

"He earned the right to be a Premier League manager and he's done fantastic work, the results speak for themselves". Great adaptation in the Premier League, getting points and performances, not just the points, that makes them feel and everybody feel, including myself, that they are going to have a very stable season.
