"He doesn't need to face more hard".

"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".

After a poor start to the season where Jose Mourinho's men lost two of the first three Premier League fixtures, the team won consecutive away games - at Burnley and Watford - and won at Young Boys in the Champions League. And I think we are improving as a team. It's going to be hard.

"For me, he is one of the best in the world".

Asked if he spoke to Mendes about Wolves, Mourinho said: "No, I haven't spoken with him for quite a long time to be honest, but when we speak we don't speak about my job or his job". What we'll see is two good teams of football trying to achieve the best result possible.

"I think the happiness, the confidence, the self-esteem was what pushed him to play the first match nearly without training against Leicester and played a very good match".

"But I think the work in Wolves is good because it's not just about the Portuguese influence - Portuguese manager, staff and players - it is also about getting the right ones and I think they have got good young players and they have also got good experienced, stable players".

Mourinho confirmed Alexis Sanchez will start against Wolves despite watching from the bench against Young Boys as his replacement, Anthony Martial, scoring in the 3-0 win.

Pressed on whether the 29-year-old needed to raise his game.

"There are small things but nothing important", said Mourinho in a pre-match press conference for Saturday's game. "Every player has another level to step up".

A resurgent Luke Shaw, returning from the head injury he picked up on global week, continued his excellent start to the season at left-back, while debutant Diogo Dalot impressed on the opposite side of the United defence.

Games against Wolves, West Ham and Newcastle offer a chance to close the gap on early leaders Liverpool and Chelsea but Mourinho has warned his players not to take their good form for granted.

"That says how hard it is to go to Old Trafford", added Nuno. Also a little bit of a fear in the duels.
