Jose Mourinho has had a flying start to his Manchester United career, something which was not enjoyed under his predecessor, Louis van Gaal. The Portuguese tactician guided the Red Devils towards a win over Leicester City in the Community Shield.

That was followed by victories over AFC Bournemouth and Southampton at home. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been the star player so far for United as the Swedish striker has bagged four goals from three appearances.

Ibrahimovic will be hoping to continue his goal-scoring form and another summer signing Paul Pogba is likely to retain his place in the starting lineup for his side's trip to Hull. Mourinho will be looking for nothing less than a win when his side takes on the Tigers on Saturday.

Hull have seen their manager Steve Bruce leave the club, which has allowed Mike Phelan to be appointed as the caretaker manager. He has guided his side to three wins in all competitions.

The Tigers started the campaign with a 2-1 win over Premier League champions Leicester City, followed by a 2-0 victory over Swansea City. In the last fixture, Hull beat Exeter City 3-1 in the EFL Cup as they progressed to the third round of the competition.

What managers say

Mike Phelan (caretaker-manager): "It would be wrong to say I haven't been frustrated. There are times when it has been more frustrating, but from a football sense on the training ground with the players, that's not frustrating. The other side can be – being at the other end of a phone call, how people sometimes deliver details to you makes you wonder what is going on. But my job right now is to prepare this club for a match against one of the best teams in the league and it doesn't come any better than that."

Jose Mourinho: "I hope he [Mike Phelan] gets the job, but loses the match.It is not fair to make a decision on the manager because he loses or wins a match."
