Unless you've been living in Pyongyang the past few weeks you might have noticed that champs Man City have a documentary out which captured the drama of the expensively-assembled side's romp to the Premier League title last season.

However, Mourinho, the Manchester United boss, has brushed away all such murmurs and has said that he has "never been more happy" with the French worldwide.

There has been uncertainty of late surrounding Mourinho and star midfielder Paul Pogba. Jose Mourinho though, will have to make an intriguing matchday selection, with Alexis Sanchez not travelling with the squad.

The Red Devils must get better, though, and quickly, or the title will start to look beyond their reach even before the race has truly begun. "For me that's the story of the game".

'You'd look at Louis van Gaal who brought in Martial and it doesn't matter who the manager is, Martial isn't good enough for Manchester United, ' he told beIN Sports.

"I thought Jose's stuff on City, that's what I'd expect from Jose", Neville said on Sky Sports' Facebook Live.

No thanks! Come back next time, the seat is full!

This confirmation of captaincy puts to bed speculation that United could install Pogba as the first-choice captain this season after his debut in the armband last weekend.

Do you think Jose Mourinho should be given more time or is it time for him to leave?

"When you are a journalist, I think you want to inform and you want to inform the truth, or you are an opinion-maker and you have your own opinion. We never had a heated or a change of words, everything is respected, I have no problems at all", Mourinho quipped. Also, he said that in the absence of full-time captain Antonio Valencia, Pogba would continue to lead the side against Brighton on Sunday.

It was a desperately poor performance from Man United, despite Paul Pogba's late penalty, and their fans took to Twitter to heap the blame on three players.
