It's good to see how we can do against them.
The man who labeled himself a "special one" when introducing himself to English soccer at Chelsea in 2004 said guiding United to a second-place finish in the Premier League last season, 19 points behind rival Manchester City, was "one of my greatest achievements in football".
Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs has urged the club's fans to get behind under-fire manager Jose Mourinho. You do what you want, I do what I want.
"Only the players know exactly how you are as a manager".
The Red Devils have lost two of their opening three Premier League games for the first time since 1992 to leave them six points off the pace in the race for the title this season.More news: Sony unveils the Xperia XZ3 with a Bravia OLED display
"They've got a presence where teams are terrified of playing them, the kind of presence that Man United used to have and no doubt wish they still did".
"We've got a really good group, a good group of hard workers and wonderful talents everywhere you look on the field".
According to stats, the defeat was United's heaviest home defeat since 2004, and some of the club's players believe the Portuguese tactician might be shown the exit door if he fails to get the result against Burnley.
Meanwhile, Burnley boss Sean Dyche has had his say on respect for Mourinho, who, as well as the Premier League three times with Chelsea, has also won the top flight in Spain, Italy and Portugal, and the Champions League twice.
"Two seasons ago we had a fantastic season winning the Europa League, this season and last season everyone thought Atletico Madrid were awesome".
"We've played in the same sort of shape with the same sort of players as we did past year, there haven't been many changes, so we know what we're good at, we just haven't done it yet".
And United would need to prove they are the best club for him to start the next stage of his career at to fend off their competition.
