No agreement between Premier League clubs over overseas TV money

The Foxes failed to earn their first win since a 2-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion on August 26; they are now in 17th place with just five points.

The worldwide break brings an end to another excellent period for the Red Devils, with United further solidifying their credentials as title contenders with seven wins out of eight in all competitions since the last break.

But after seven games, the spiky Portuguese - who, despite winning three trophies last season, probably looks back and rues the mistakes made more than he relishes the success.

United's midfielders have chipped in with more goals than City and their defensive axis - led by summer signing Nemanja Matic - has made more interceptions.

The Red Devils looked very good against their rivals with four goals netted in six different matches.

Also quizzed about the good Premier League form, Mourinho said: "Nothing happened yet". Romelu Lukaku has the potential to be the best but he needs to keep doing what he's doing to get there.

Mourinho took the Manchester United job last May, replacing Louis van Gaal despite the Dutchman scooping the FA Cup.

If you had to name all the teams Manchester United have faced this season up to this point, you would not find many names of great football clubs.

Jose Mourinho described Fellaini as a "strong character" for overcoming his early troubles at Man United to establish himself as a key player at Old Trafford.

Man City beat Chelsea on their home ground.

United return from the global break with a trip to Anfield to take on their bitter rivals. But there is no getting away from the fact that they face a crucial run of fixtures after the worldwide break with games against three of last season's top four in the space of 23 days.

Liverpool have struggled slightly of late.

But they haven't played anyone!

Harry Kane is now scoring goals for fun and he will most certainly test Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and maybe even Victor Lindelof.

Last season, Mourinho's preferred tactic when playing away against the top teams was to sit back, soak up pressure and try to push for the draw.

But if the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager wants to send a message of his own, like Pep and City did against Chelsea on Saturday, then United must go to Anfield and win.
