Mourinho: Rooney is a Man Utd legend

The Premier League match between Manchester United and Everton will be broadcast live on NBCSN. Lukaku and Rooney will be interesting to watch against their former clubs, but Manchester United's organisation and freshness should see them to victory.

This match calls for a historic night like never before, as all-time Manchester United's leading goal-scorer, Wayne Rooney, readies himself to return to the Theatre of Dreams for the first time since leaving in the summer. Romelu Lukaku has six goals in six games for his new club since his £75m move from the Toffees this summer.

United's manager also argues that Rooney had an easier job scoring goals at United, because the Premier League was a more attack-minded competition for much of his time at the club.

"I think it is more hard now", Jose Mourinho stated.

"That power belongs to every club in the Premier League, so the teams are potentially strong".

"I think Rooney will find a way to score, I'm scared for United that he can find different ways", Saha told BetStars.

Even so, Mourinho is of the view that Lukaku will continue to benefit from playing in a United side who carry more attacking threat than they did last season.

Last weeks draw against Stoke was a big set back fro Jose Mourinho's men, who conceded their first and second goals of the season, and will be looking to get back to winning ways in front of a home crowd.

However, Mourinho said he couldn't stand in the way of England's record goalscorer when he wanted to leave.

"So it's not just the striker".

"I don't think it was my influence".

"I think the stadium will show him the respect that he deserves, I hope, before the match and after the match".

Mourinho refused to enter into any debate as to how Lukaku and Ibrahimovic compare.

So life goes on, and that's the way I did it last season with Fellaini.

"It looks to me that everything around him is very normal". When players are similar, you can compare. "I am not going to do that".
