Chelsea's Willian claims Jose Mourinho wanted to sign him for Manchester United

Antonio JonesFeb 12, 2017

Manchester United are now in sixth place in the Premier League table and 14 points behind leaders Chelsea after a stuttering start to life under the Portuguese coach at Old Trafford.

Manchester United cruised to a 2-0 win against Watford in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Saturday.

"We're on a 15-match unbeaten run in the League", De Gea said.

The latter was impressing on his return to the starting line-up and had Watford anxious within two minutes into the restart, flying down the left and firing across the face of goal.

That hot streak is now set to continue next season with Mourinho saying: "I am convinced he is staying". But because it is my team you just say it was very good, but that is fine.

"Sometimes you get disappointed because you expect more and even in relation to this everything is balanced". "I think the most important thing is a full stadium, the second most important thing is a noisy stadium, and we are committed to keeping that".

"We have an incredible record of being unbeaten but we should have more victories and with more victories we would be in a better position but it is what it is".

Mata's first-half goal was a superb, flowing team move.

Over the last 13 months, two of Willian's teammates for club and country have left the Premier League to join the Chinese Super League.

"So I don't think they will let it slip, but football is football".

Yet, Mourinho suggested that he will still need to bring between two and four players to improve his current squad, as United will be expected to compete for the Premier League title next season.

United's attacking approach looked slick in the opening stages, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all failing to capitalise on half-chances before a deflected Martial shot looped narrowly wide.

The player started brightly when he arrived from Monaco but has struggled to recapture that form this term, with his lack of game time leading to questions over his happiness and Old Trafford future. "I gave him the possibility of a few days off to go to Sweden, but he doesn't want to, he prefers to stay here, so I'm totally convinced he is going to stay".

None of us doubted Martial's ability to bounce back and he vindicated that with what was a sizzling display against a Watford team which tried to be resolute right up until the final whistle.
