Mourinho's views on derby win and transfers

24 Julio 2017, 03:59 | Cornelio Vivanco

Earlier this week, the Portuguese revealed he had asked his board for four new players but admitted he might have to settle for three owing to the hard nature of the market this summer.

"In my vision, my job is much more than what I do on the pitch and the results that my team gets at the weekend".

Romelu Lukaku and Álvaro Morata are both 24, were both wanted by Chelsea and Manchester United, and both looking to win their first Premier League title.

Lukaku finished as the Premier League's second top scorer last season at Everton and the 24-year-old brings proven top-flight experience to Old Trafford. Romelu Lukaku scored the opening goal in the 37th minute through a really well-taken finish, converting Paul Pogba's hopeful ball over the Blues' defence from a tight angle to break the deadlock.

The forward has already received an endorsement from Belgium centre-back Vincent Kompany and his club teammate De Bruyne has added his voice to those praising Lukaku.

Lukaku has had the flawless start to his United career by scoring in the past two tour games and contributing impressive link-up play.

The match was just a friendly and Manchester City's first game while Manchester United has already played two friendly matches in the U.S. tour against LA Galaxy and Real Salt Lake. Combine this with the 30 assists Lukaku has registered in his career, compared with Morata's 23, and this takes the Belgian's goal involvement per game to 0.55 against his rival's 0.43. We have had three friendly matches and we play with three different systems. So be careful what you say.

"I want him to do well - except for in a few games (against Manchester City) this season!"

True, United were impressive in their pre-season bow, surprisingly light years ahead of an LA Galaxy side in the middle of their MLS campaign. In the way we play at Old Trafford, in the way we dominate opponents in the way we play in their box, I think Chicharito would have 20 goals easy.

All told, it was just good to see City playing again, and we saw a lot of positives that go beyond a meaningless result, even though this was a rivalry match.

Lukaku is a powerful striker that has earned admirers for his finishing, pace, raw strength, and remarkable will to keep developing and be one of the best strikers in the game.
