They host a newly-promoted Wolves team on Saturday led by Nuno Espirito Santo, who was a goalkeeper in Mourinho's Porto side more than 15 years ago. I think with my style of game I am good for this league and I think I adapt good.
Wolves are likely to need their top stars on form if they are to pick up a result away to United, but have already picked up a point at home to their neighbours Manchester City this season.
Wolves travel to Old Trafford for a Premier League encounter and will be looking to build on a positive start to the season, where they have picked up eight points from five games.

United go into the Wolves game on a run of three straight victories, conceding only one goal in the process.

"And bad results and bad performances, they make you look more exhausted, more upset, more ugly, more everything". I think this is more the influence of the moment. Asked whether this was down to the Lindelöf-Smalling partnership, Mourinho said: "No, I think the team as a team is resolving the defensive problems better than before".
