Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has said that Jose Mourinho is still one of the best managers around despite the team making an average start to the Premier League. The Portuguese tactician had come under fire after the side lost back-to-back games versus Brighton & Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur but the reply was perfect versus Burnley after they secured a comfortable 2-0 win.
United had gone through their worst start to the Premier League season since 1992 after losing two of the opening three games but they have managed to bring some happiness to the supporters after dominating the proceedings against Sean Dyche’s side. Nonetheless, they need to carry on with the same vigour following the international break where they have a potentially testing encounter versus Watford.
Mourinho’s side have had the better of Watford on more occasions than not but they may have to be wary of the current form of the Hornets. Javi Garcia’s side have made the perfect start to the season with 12 points from the opening four matches and their most recent triumph came against Tottenham Hotspur in a surprise 2-1 comeback win.
