Manchester United told they've not done enough to win the Premier League

They would not have to contest a top-six side until October.

And according to ESPN, Mourinho will now limit Valencia's game time this season. He wouldn't have had to Google teammate Ben Davies, however, who has made a blistering start to the season.

But despite this hugely promising start to the new season, there is still a question hanging over this powerful, energetic and goal-hungry side.

The Belgian was a key reason for Manchester United's Europa League triumph earlier in the year, yet some quarters of the United fan base felt the team was better than the former Everton man.

An injury to Lukaku would have been the worst news for United.

"We have still to play City and United, so there will be opportunities to get closer to them", said Cech.

Nemanja Matic's arrival from Chelsea in the summer has hit Herrera's first-team prospects. Even Marouane Fellaini, long maligned by United fans, has been getting in on the act. He is not only just breaking up play well, but also is becoming rather potent in front of goal.

If you had to name all the teams Manchester United have faced this season up to this point, you would not find many names of great football clubs.

It certainly looks to be getting tougher from here on out as United will take on bitter rivals Liverpool upon their return to domestic football, United suffered their only dropped points of the campaign in the 2-2 draw with Stoke City after the last global break and Mourinho admitted that he doesn't "welcome the break".

Two wins and two clean sheets against two fellow top six teams is an enormous message of intent.

They face World Cup qualifiers against Chile and Argentina during the global break. In a way, they have a problem at present that United couldn't quite shake last season, which is turning draws into wins. The Welshman was always renowned for his defensive solidity, but has added attacking verve to his repertoire his term.

"In another league it could be said that a team that starts with seven wins and a draw would nearly mean the title, but in England it doesn't mean anything, not even that we will finish in the first four places".

But they only need time to start to gel together and when they do, the speed, skill and quality of all four players will be in full flow.

"I don't think they've taken a big enough one for me but I do think they've moved in the right direction". Essentially, his aim was not to lose.

Such a request, if granted, would play in Manchester United's favour with the young striker being fresher for the game at Anfield the following weekend.
