Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has praised Alexis Sanchez following their 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup on Wednesday morning, and also hailed four stars for returning from holiday sooner than expected.

The Chilean has looked in good touch for United in pre-season so far, having scored twice already, which has pleased his Portuguese boss, while four players, who are supposed to still be on holiday, have also decided to return sooner than expected, although midfielder Paul Pogba is not one of them.

"We start the Premier League in nine days," Mourinho said, according to the Daily Express.  

"These are the players that we have, plus Victor Lindelof, who started training two days ago.

"Plus we have Rashford, Jones and Lukaku because they gave to the group and to the team three days of their holidays, so they're coming back three days early to try and be available for the team.

"And with the fantastic spirit we have in the majority of the players, I repeat: in the majority of the players, we have a fantastic spirit, we go with everything we have to go to the Premier League.

"Alexis Sanchez is fresh, the way the man is running, I think he is in fantastic condition so let's look at it from a positive side and wait for Lindelof, Rashford, Lukaku and Jones.

"They're not prepared, but they will be back and that's the spirit we need, because our first two or three weeks in the Premier League are going to be really hard for us because we didn't prepare for that."
