Manchester united manager Jose Mourinho has admitted that United’s Saturday clash against newly promoted side Burnley would be a difficult one but emphasized on the importance of getting the vital three points and the manager expects his team to reproduce the same level of momentum they displayed against Manchester city on Wednesday night.
Burnley who currently have two former red devils players in their team Michael Keane and Tom Heaton are presently in the 14th position of the premier league table after grabbing a win over Everton football club last Saturday and Jose Mourinho insists he won’t take the Burnley team for granted when both teams meet on Saturday.
Speaking to Manchester United TV, the Portuguese boss said; “The Burnley team is a very tough side and even when I was manager at Chelsea in the 2014/2015 season, they got a draw at Stamford Bridge and also Manchester city.
I know they have won at home against Liverpool and Everton but they have good results against big teams so it is going to be a tough encounter”.
“They play with everything they have and I know how important this game is for us so we have to be at our best and also they fans have to be behind us which they’ve always done”.
The manager admitted that the defeat at Chelsea was a big disappointment but he expressed satisfaction with how his team has responded and called on his players to starting getting the maximum point in every game.
“The team is in a good shape right now. I prefer to lose a game by 4-0 and not lose four games by 1-0. We failed to get the three points against Stoke and that game has been our best match at home so far in the area of creating chances, initiating attacks and quality of play. We are playing good football right now but we obviously need to start getting the vital points”
