Height matters for Jose Mourinho's Manchester United

The fans are some of the most passionate around and I am really looking forward to meeting some of them on Saturday.

The Premier League's "big six" clubs have suffered a significant setback in their efforts to claim a bigger share of overseas TV rights.

Mourinho and his "stifling" philosophy might be a contradiction, an antithesis, in modern day football where more and more top teams are opting to play quick, dynamic football using diminutive players, but there is no denying that he has been successful playing football the way he wants.

United will return to action after the worldwide break with a stern test of their credentials, with Mourinho's men due at Anfield on October 14 to face old adversaries Liverpool. "After that, the opponents are good too, but we are going to try". Even Marouane Fellaini, long maligned by United fans, has been getting in on the act.

The death toll has now risen to 59 with over 500 injured after suspected lone gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire from a hotel room window.

Herrera has felt more appreciated since Mourinho took over and when there was talk of a move to Barcelona in the summer to link up with his former Bilbao boss, Ernesto Valverde, it was quickly dismissed. My colleague Harry Brooks is extremely high on Marcus Rashford, and his performance against Crystal Palace at the weekend makes it very easy to see why.

The fact that Rashford is keeping Anthony Martial on the bench for the most part is a great sign for England as well as United, but the option to bring Martial on makes United's left flank one of the most unsafe entities in football.

Watford have conceded 10 goals so far this season, although 60% of those came in a single game - the 6-0 home defeat to Manchester City earlier this month.

It certainly looks to be getting tougher from here on out as United will take on bitter rivals Liverpool upon their return to domestic football, United suffered their only dropped points of the campaign in the 2-2 draw with Stoke City after the last worldwide break and Mourinho admitted that he doesn't "welcome the break". Struggle and their position atop the league becomes far more questionable. Herrera was man-of-the-match in, according to Mourinho, United's match of the season.
