We are going to play better than we did but I think it's going to be a very hard season.

Jose Mourinho's side were plunged into a relative crisis in the early stages of the season as they suffered back-to-back defeats to Tottenham and Brighton.

"I am optimistic, but a hard season, yes", said Mourinho. "The team is playing better and they are part of the team that plays these matches".

Wolves are the only Premier League team to secure a positive result against defending champions Manchester City in the current campaign.

"I am not saying we are going to have more points than last season because last season we collect a very acceptable level of points", he said. All of them, they can say the same thing.

Though he signed in the summer transfer window, he has been out of action since but finally got off to the flawless start during Man United's comfortable 3-0 dispatching of Swiss champions Young Boys.

Throughout the fighting, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has maintained continuous contact with Russian Federation . The Russian Ministry said the meeting was to do with the loss of the Russian plane.

"Last year I had the opportunity to play at Old Trafford with Benfica and it was a great experience and now here is another opportunity".

United go into the Wolves game on a run of three straight victories, conceding only one goal in the process. "I don't want to say was Bailly or (Phil) Jones (before) and that it is now Smalling or Lindelof". "He plays Tuesday again".

"Tomorrow, it is two good teams trying to achieve the best result possible".

Macari has been left impressed with the quality of football the team from the Black Country have displayed this season and admits that they deserved more than just a 1-0 win over Burnley last weekend.

"He has recovered totally and Tuesday he plays again but he showed for the ones that don't know him very, very well he is not a player to be here just on formation, he is a player to be here for positions". We are going to play better than we did but I think it's going to be a very hard season.
