Manchester United not in title race - Mourinho

Mourinho's side will take on Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League fixture at Old Trafford.

Charlie Nicholas and Dennis Wise discussed on The Debate whether they think Manchester United will finish in the top four this season - and both agreed they would need January signings to have a chance.

"When you are outside the top four I don't believe you should speak about the title", Mourinho said.

"We estimate that by around 10pm this evening, [Paul Pogba] will move on to the stutter-steps stage", a Manchester United statement to FourFourTwo reads.

Jose Mourinho accepts Manchester United are not in the Premier League title race due to their poor start to the season.

"Because in this moment we are outside the top four and we have to push hard and to work hard and try to get into this top four position". If we only consider games in the Premier League era, then the record is better still since United have won four of the six encounters between the two teams.

They are now eighth on the log with 17 points from 10 games, and the former United star, who now plays for DC United believes the players have to do more.

Francis said the teams' starts to the season could even suggest Bournemouth deserved favouritism for the clash at Vitality Stadium.

After Pogba's laborious spot-kick run-up against Everton, comprising almost 50,000 steps and taking the best part of three hours, United have moved to prevent the game being held up by the playmaker's set-piece protocol.

"We had a double of away fixtures, Burnley and Watford, and now we have a double of away fixtures, Bournemouth and Manchester City". I think the pressure is too high.

"We will have Juventus away before Manchester City and we will have Valencia away before Liverpool. The form book would say we might be favourites going into the game", he told The Mirror.

On the other hand, Bournemouth have been one of the most surprising teams in the EPL thus far. "Last week was an effort from them to be available to help the team".
