After a moral boosting over Spurs in the weekend, Manchester United and Jose Mourinho must feel a whole lot better about themselves.
It was a crucial game for Manchester United as they could not afford to go potentially eight points below Manchester City this early in the season. After a dour draw at Anfield, Jose came under severe criticism for his defensive tactics.
That probably explains the ‘shushing’ signal that he gave after the victory over Spurs at Old Trafford. Jose will now go to Stamford Bridge next week in what is now being called ‘The Jose Derby’ with tail up and wanting to win at all costs.

According to reports Jose is not happy with his current squad and wants to add three more players to compete for the highest honours. He wants to bring Mats Hummels, Marco Verratti and Gareth Bale to Old Trafford in order to build a title winning squad capable of building a dynasty at the great club.
This news comes after reports indicating that the Portuguese manager’s relationship with United chiefs are tense following his comments on PSG. Jose was quite warm in speaking about the ambitious Parisian club, which did not go too well with United’s chiefs.
Hummels would certainly add more quality to United’s defense while the addition of Verratti would make United fans salivate about a potential midfield trio of Pogba, Matic and Verratti at Old Trafford.
Of course Gareth Bale has been linked before to the club as it is a well known fact that Jose is a huge fan of the Welshman.
Let’s see if Jose gets his wish this time around!
