Jose Mourinho has insisted that Manchester United are not the Premier League’s “dream team”, despite their 4-0 win over West Ham on the opening weekend of the new season.
United are currently top of the table after their emphatic win at Old Trafford. But Mourinho claims the manner of the victory ,does not make his side the best team in the country or favourites for the title.
“I’m too experienced and stable to lose my discipline, my stability and to think a 4-0 really makes us the best team in the country, the favourites or the dream team.
“We’re not favourites, we’re not the dream team, we’re just a team with more confidence than last season, with more time of work together, but I’m calm.
“When I look to the last match, I like many, many things, but the challenge is not to repeat the result, because a 4-0 win is difficult to repeat in the Premier League, but to repeat the same kind of performance.
“We had good tactical discipline in the team, a really good clean sheet, played good football, had a good dynamic in attack, we were scoring goals, winning 1-0 and we kept playing to try to score more goals and to try to play well.
“I liked a lot. I liked the fact the three subs, who are normally disappointed people to be on the bench, even five minutes like Jesse Lingard, 10 like Anthony Martial or 15 like Marouane Fellaini, they performed at same level.
“But this is just the beginning. Last season we played three matches, had nine points and finished sixth,” Mourinho said.
