This season in the new season the Manchester United have made a stuttering start, in their opening three matches they have lost their last two matches against Brighton and Tottenham.

The special one believes that Sanchez is planning to make his fitness better in the two weeks gaps of the International break.
Mourinho voiced: “He’s [Alexis] not going to the national team for these two friendlies in Japan and South Korea, which is good news for us because after that we play Watford and then immediately play [in the] Champions League [away at Young Boys].
“He’s committed, he’s focused, he works hard. I believe that he will improve.
“I didn’t ask [Alexis], I never ask players not to go [on international duty] and I never contact national teams for players not to go.
“It’s a personal thing between him and the national manager.
“At the same time, coming [back] from injury, he feels that for him it’s a much-needed two weeks in spite of his conditions to play against Burnley.
“He feels that, after that [the game at Turf Moor], he needs two weeks to put himself in good shape and, because of the friendly matches in Asia, they made the decision for his good and, in consequence our good, for him not to go.”
