EPL preview: Manchester United on upward curve under Jose Mourinho, says Fortune

Manchester United haven't lost three consecutive Premier League away games since January 1996, while Jose Mourinho has only lost three straight away league games once in his managerial career (August 2006 with Chelsea). Look at some of the games this season - he has kept us in games. He is likely to be flanked by England global Jesse Lingard, who scored the victor against Chelsea last week, on the right side and former Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez on the left, which would mean Anthony Martial misses out.

He is a very good player. Yohan Cabaye, Joel Ward, Mamadou Sakho, Wilfried Zaha (remember him United fans?), Julian Speroni, Scott Dann, Jason Puncheon, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Connor Wickham are all out. There's a bit more scrutiny on the players that have cost the big money.

"The way we're playing it looks very hard to beat, so I hope next season we'll go further and win the league".

"We don't have them".

"United may have to be patient but I expect them to take all three points". Over their last five games, United have been held goalless twice and scored only five times.

"In my opinion, he's probably the best goalkeeper in the world at this moment in time and we hope that continues". It's a quality to know how to play against teams who at certain moments are better than you.

"You want to improve, you want to have competition and I am sure the manager will strengthen his team and try to win the league next year".

At his age, what he's doing is more than enough, and the experience he's getting at every level is more than enough for us to be happy with what we think is going to be his future. "He's been absolutely brilliant, and we hope we can keep him here for many years to come".

Before last week's 1-0 defeat by Tottenham he was without 12 senior players and while Jeffrey Schlupp and Martin Kelly will return for Monday's fixture at home to Manchester United, the on-loan Timothy Fosu-Mensah's ineligibility against his parent club means their options remain limited.

Sanchez has put in decent displays so far but nothing reminiscent of his best while Pogba hasn't truly finished developing as of yet.
