We know it's going to be hard but we are confident.

United host Wolves on Saturday with the chance to win four games in a row for the first time since January, and Mourinho said he is confident his team have improved from last season.

"Now we have a lot of confidence, we are in a great moment, so I think it is possible (to earn a win) if we do what we were doing last match".

"He came in for €100 million and you factor in that Man United do pay a premium because they're one of the biggest and richest football clubs in the world, and the riches of the Premier League, but I don't see much difference in him from when he turned up".

"A team that yesterday looked very bad, today looks very good and yesterday looked very good, today looks very bad".

Dalot gave an impressive performance on his United debut in the Champions League on Wednesday night after recovering from the knee injury he was nursing when signed from Porto for £19m over the summer.

Diogo Dalot impressed on debut against Young Boys but his next start is set to come on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup.

"I want him, in this process of adaptation, to play totally fresh, so he's not playing tomorrow". The 25-year-old was also happy with his first goal but claimed that the result was more important for Manchester United. "He doesn't need to face more hard".

Nuno - who shares the same agent, Jorge Mendes, with Mourinho and is actually his oldest client - is achieving that at Wolves who have collected eight points, and lie ninth in the Premier League, after being promoted from the Championship, which they dominated.

"We have to continue working hard in training and we know that in the Premier League we have to score".

Speaking at his pre-match media conference ahead of their clash against Wolves on Saturday afternoon, Mourinho highlighted some improvements his team have made.

'But I think the work in Wolves is good because it's not just about the Portuguese influence - Portuguese manager, staff and players - it's also about getting the right ones. We are going to play better than we did, so that's what we can do.
