Jose Mourinho impressed with Anthony Martial's attitude

Burton were beaten 5-0 but it earned the club more than £500,000 ($680,000, 565,000 euros) when they were Conference part-timers and in their first season at the Pirelli Stadium.

Jose Mourinho's side are level on 13 points with Manchester City while champions Chelsea are three points behind.

United have had a hard few years since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement but Mourinho is starting to help the club get back to their former glories.

Mourinho watched his Manchester United team begin their defence of the trophy with a comfortable 4-1 win over Championship side Burton Albion at Old Trafford.

Last season failed to deliver an epic title clash between Mourinho and Pep Guardiola but this season doesn't look like it will disappoint.

The Red Devils are unbeaten on their last nine trips to St Mary's Stadium. The 21-year-old attacker has already scored four goals and provided two assists in all competitions despite not all always starting.

Virgil van Dijk could make his first start of the season after coming on as a substitute against Crystal Palace last week.

Martial's compatriot Paul Pogba will continue to miss out this weekend, however, and Mourinho remains no clearer on how long the former Juventus star will be out for.

"Speed in football is about speed of your brain, the speed of your decisions and with the quality of our players we are trying to implement that fast football".

"The next round, if somebody is better than us and they beat us... then okay, we're finished".

English Premier League champion Chelsea, 5-1 victor over Nottingham Forest on Wednesday, will welcome Everton to Stamford Bridge.

The pair have been duelling it out for the left-wing spot following the arrival of centre-forward Romelu Lukaku and Rashford says they are driving each other on. The Belgian striker is the favourite in this market at the best odds of 6/5 at Coral.

Anthony Martial has often replaced the England global in the second half of their fixtures and has benefited from Rashford tiring out his opponent.

We are going for less than 2.5 goals in this market, and you can back this tip at the best odds of 17/20 at Betvictor.
