Manchester United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan keen to improve to keep starting place

Manchester United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan keen to improve to keep starting place”

José Mourinho's successful debut season in charge of Manchester United saw the side pick up three trophies, but more crucially sealing a return to Champions League football with theirtriumph in the Europa League over Ajax.

JOSE MOURINHO is reportedly furious with the Premier League over Manchester United's fixtures after their Champions League away matches.

Chelsea defender David Luiz says his side deserved the points.

"But this season is different because I started playing well and the connection and understanding with other players, especially [Romelu] Lukaku, is great and I hope we can score many goals in the coming games".

"I did very well last season, I'm very happy for that, I'm very glad, but this season it's a bit different because we're playing in the Champions League and the tournament is more hard".

Meanwhile Celtic has got their campaign back on track with a 3-nil over over fellow Group B minnows Anderlecht in Belgium.

'They've got to try to do that first and consolidate there, before you start looking at the Champions League and talking yourself up as one of the contenders. City travel to Italy to play Napoli on the first Wednesday in November but they do not then play Arsenal in the Premier League until the Sunday afternoon.

United are expected to qualify for the knockout stages from Group A with the Red Devils battling Basel, Benfica and CSKA for the top two places.

However, Mourinho was keen to emphasise Mkhitaryan is not a guaranteed starter at Arena CSKA.

From 2005 to 2012, British football clubs made eight appearances in Champions League finals, winning the competition three times during that period. I'm not saying Mkhitaryan starts the match tomorrow.

Liverpool are fourth, receiving 15% of the vote, and it remains to be seen how they will deal with Champions League football this season.

"This season is another story and we need him to perform".

"Let me make it clear that normally we bring players here that are starting the match the next day", the boss said.

"Matches away from home are even more hard".
