Manchester United have an opportunity to bounce back from the draw against Liverpool in the league last weekend that has left them two points adrift of their noisy neighbours Manchester City. In a matter of minutes, the Red Devils will file out against newly promoted Premier league side Huddersfield Town.
Since the resignation of Sir Alex Ferguson from the helms of the club, United have failed to equal his impressive start in the league. Nonetheless, the Portuguese tactician has now equaled the record of his idol with 20 points in as much as eight games in the league.
Albeit there are no minnows in the league, David Wagner’s side cannot make light work of the impressive Red Devils side. United have not lost a match this season in all competitions and it is not looking like they will take their foot off the throttle anytime soon.

Marcus Rashford who has become one of the best set piece takers in the league limped out of Man United’s Champions league win against Benfica. Mourinho has revealed that the youngster is fine and in contention for the game today. Jose then told reporters: “Nobody else is coming back. We have the same players as we had for the Benfica match.”
Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini still on the recovery pane while Marcos Rojo is back but short of fitness to play in any game.
Mourinho also spoke about Paul Pogba but he revealed that he does not know when the French star will return but that he hopes Zlatan Ibrahimovic will play before the close of the year.
