Chelsea star reveals Jose Mourinho wanted him at Manchester United

Manchester United secured a 2-0 win over Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday to move up to fifth place in the Premier League table and keep the pressure on those above them.

"When a team faces Manchester United they will always fight until the end".

And Mata was "very happy" with the way United produced a convincing performance to down Watford.

Despite Mourinho's comments that Chelsea favour defensive tactics, they have scored 13 more goals than United so far this season and now have an 11 point lead on the Old Trafford giants heading into their game against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday. "We are not going to play this game, we are stable, so we think our market in the summer will be soft, (it) will be natural". Normally I would start with Marcus Rashford because he played well, and the team played well, at Leicester (3-0 win last weekend), but I thought Marcus doesn't need a boost - his confidence levels are normal.

Manchester United moved to within just one point of the top four after easing to a 2-0 victory over Watford at Old Trafford this afternoon.

The Manchester outfit have shown themselves capable of attracting star players such as Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan without the benefit of Champions League football, so it's not out of the question they can get Griezmann, too.

Of Ibrahimovic, who is 35 and has scored 20 times for United since arriving at the club in July, he said: "I'm totally convinced he is going to stay".

Martial's personal life has also come under scrutiny following the break-up of his marriage to Samantha Jacquelinet, casting doubt over his future at United after finishing as the club's leading scorer under Louis van Gaal last season.

"We will be very direct". But I love Spain still and would love to play again back at home'.

Watford's best chance of the game, and one they really needed to take if they wanted to give themselves any chance of salvaging anything, fell to substitute Daryl Janmaat who should have tapped home M'Baye Niang's far post cross, but he wastefully missed the target.
