The FC crew assess whether Manchester United have actually improved or are benefiting from a favourable run of fixtures. He wouldn't have had to Google teammate Ben Davies, however, who has made a blistering start to the season.

Burnley sit 6th in the Premier League coming into the global break and have conceded just five goals in seven games, in part due to the centre-back partnership for Mee and Tarkowski.

"Without Zlatan we can not rotate the striker", Mourinho admitted ahead of Saturday's win. They have dismantled their opponents, with an off-day against Stoke the only blemish on their Premier League record.

At least Herrera is used to biding his time at Old Trafford. And the added height, the lack of which was lamented by Luis Van Gaal during his tenure as United manager, has been a big aiding factor.

Fast forward to the beginning of the 2017/18 season and the club are already on their third permanent manager since Ferguson's departure following the dismissals of both David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal in 2014 and 2016 respectively.

Mourinho has stressed on several occasions that it would take Lindelof time to fully acclimatise to the vicissitudes of Premier League football this season.

When your team is doing really well the last thing you need is for your players to be going off to far foreign lands where they aren't even under your control, just ask Pep Guardiola with Sergio Aguero last week. It is a chance to prove their title credentials.

Victor Lindelof has spoken out about his relationship with Jose Mourinho and the criticism being sent his way by the media. "Especially because Marcus Rashford is playing also in other positions." . He will remember, too, how the Spaniard suffocated Eden Hazard in that win over Chelsea like a smaller, more polite, Roy Keane, but with less frothing at the mouth and more Iberian gesticulating. "I feel more mature".

It is not out of the question that he could do the same job on Philippe Coutinho at Anfield on Oct.14 or against Hazard again at Stamford Bridge three weeks later.

After the European champions, Everton is the biggest side to have played against Man United.

When the Premier League resumes it does so with a bang as Liverpool host Manchester United in the early kick-off on Saturday. Eight have ended in wins. They are now averaging 0.66 goals a game.

Herrera's spell on the sidelines may not last much longer.

This is the Manchester United that has been missing at Old Trafford.
