The club the majority of people think could well win the title are of course Manchester City, who have begun the season brilliantly - and it seems that Pep Guardiola's men are the pick of the bunch, with their win over Chelsea a performance that even United fans sat up and took notice of.

The Manchester United manager allegedly wants Marcus Rashford to be given a rest in Sunday's match with Lithuania should England have already qualified for the World Cup, a scenario that will play out with victory over Slovenia at Wembley tomorrow.

City have scored 17 goals and kept four clean sheets in their past four Premier League matches.

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.

Mourinho will remember how United only began to get a foothold in the first Manchester derby of last season when Herrera came on at half-time.

"The defeat suffered in Switzerland didn't change my opinion that Benfica are our main opponent in this group stage of the Champions League. It is going to be hard but that's why we are here".

United return from the worldwide break with a trip to Anfield to take on their bitter rivals. They also have the form of Marouane Fellaini - once booed by United fans - to be thankful for.

The issue has been simmering for years and former Liverpool CEO Ian Ayre has led calls for clubs to be able to sell their foreign rights on an individual basis which would allow the big ones to cash in more on their global marketability.

Paddy Crerand has claimed that the current Manchester United squad are the best he has seen since the club's treble winning season in 1999.

Premier League clubs have unanimously agreed to postpone a decision on a controversial proposal to end the equal sharing of overseas TV revenue until November, the organisation confirmed to ESPN FC.

In short then, United have looked exceptionally good in games they struggled in last season, but it's too early to tell if they are really the title challengers Mourinho needs them to be.

They have dropped just two points this term and that came in a 2-2 draw away to Stoke.
