Manchester United back Jose Mourinho despite 'mixed start' to Premier League - Ed Woodward

Steve Nicol and Craig Burley examine Manchester City's dominance of rivals Man United in a 3-1 derby win that showed the gulf between the two sides.

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has said the club are fully behind manager Jose Mourinho despite the "mixed" start to the Premier League.

United are eighth in the Premier League after 12 games following Sunday's 3-1 defeat against Manchester City, and sit seven points off a top-four spot.

"On the pitch we remain well positioned in the Champions League and although we have had a mixed start to our domestic campaign, the squad and the manager are fully united in their determination to regain our momentum in the Premier League," Woodward said while announcing first quarter revenues of £135 million.

Woodward also said United have the "financial strength" to get back to contending for the biggest trophies at home and abroad.

The club have not won the Premier League title since 2013 and have not made the Champions League semifinals since reaching the final in 2011.

But ahead of the January transfer window -- and while negotiations continue with star players David De Gea and Anthony Martial over new long term contracts -- Woodward insists the money is there to help get United back to the top of world football. 

"Our financial strength enables us to continue to attract and retain top players and to invest in our academy, as we look to drive the success on the pitch that the club and our fans expect," Woodward said.

"We remain on track to deliver our record full-year revenue guidance, underpinning our long-term, strategic plan to create sustainable growth across all areas of the club."
