Jose Mourinho hopes his side will serve up a Red Devils victory as a tribute to the victims of the Munich air disaster

Manchester United will look to bounce back from their disappointing defeat to Tottenham when they host Huddersfield Town at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Red Devils were soundly beaten by Mauricio Pochettino's side at Wembley on Wednesday, picking up their fourth league defeat of the season in a 2-0 turnover.

In Huddersfield, they come up against another side who has punished them this season, the Terriers having won 2-1 in the corresponding fixture back in October.

While revenge and a desire to bounce back will be on their mind, it will also be a solemn occasion for the club as they commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Munich air disaster.

GAME PREVIEW


Marcus Rashford Romelu Lukaku Manchester United

Jose Mourinho is hopeful that his players will rise to the occasion against Huddersfield on Saturday as Manchester United honour those who lost their lives in the Munich air disaster.

The club is getting ready to mark the 60th anniversary of the tragedy and there will be a minute's silence ahead of the game against the Terriers.

"I think it should affect [the players] in a positive way," Mourinho told MUTV.

"If we believe they are watching the match I think it's one more reason for a happy day and for a good performance and a manifestation of United colours.

"So yes, of course a minute of silence for them and for the families, but I think they would love happiness, joy, a Manchester United victory, points, goals... I think they would love that."

A Man United victory may not be so straightforward, however, considering Huddersfield upset the Red Devils already this season.

Nevertheless, there will be a heightened appetite for glory, particularly in light of their capitulation against Spurs earlier in the week.
