EPL 2016/17: Manchester United 2-0 Watford, 5 Talking Points

Cape Town - Chelsea winger Willian has revealed that representatives from Manchester United made an approach to sign him before the start of the current Premier League season. "Walter Mazzarri is a very good coach and his team is very well organised". "We have an wonderful record of being unbeaten, but we should have more". It was a convincing performance and we are very happy today.

"We know that we have a squad that like every squad needs changes, but we know also that our squad has potential, has good players, many of them in the best age, the age of evolution", Mourinho told a news conference. I gave him the possibility of a day off to go to Sweden. I think it's the kind of football that, instead of being a Mourinho team, if it's somebody else's team you would say art.

"United are now on their longest unbeaten league run since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, but they know it is all about winning in the chase for a top-four finish".

"If you present a top club like Manchester United that has a great history, a great character you feel the pressure because you have to keep up the rhythm of the club and keep making history", he said.

"So I'm convinced that he's staying, he's adapted to the club, to the situation, I don't see any problem with his family". We have been winning games but not going higher in the table.

Watford's Nigerian forward Isaac Success was introduced for Craig Cathcart with seven minutes remaining in the game.

Here he is, sixteen matches unbeaten (16!), but with only nine wins in that span including Saturday's 2-0 victory over Watford. "I'm totally convinced he is going to stay", he said. Mourinho's become the one thing he's trained us to hate over the years. This weekend we have a lot of exciting matches with the top teams in Europe also preparing for Champions League in the midweek.

Ibrahimovic missed more chances in the second half too and Watford defender Daryl Janmaat managed to miss from three yards out, which could have meant an exciting finish to the game.

"We are going in the right direction".

In terms of the game itself, it started as many would have expected with the home side having all of the possession while the visitors set up with ten men behind the ball. "If it wasn't for our mistake for their second goal, maybe we could have got a point".
