Man Utd, with the players they have [make the top four]"They are already playing and they are running out." Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham. "Mourinho has been frustrated after a below-average transfer window in the summer, and the special wanted one." As new center-back, United deputy chairman Ed Woodward refused to support Mourinho when Mourinho talked to City on Sunday prior to United's clash Mourinho claimed that the Red Devils needed to improve defensively and said, "If we continue to give in [opening] Aims where the day will arrive where we can not come back. "I think [it] It's clear that the team will grow up, but we also need to grow up in our compactness and start the games well. "
