Cape Town - While he admits it is unlikely, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho revealed he wants his side to win every match they play this season in all competitions.

The former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss has already claimed his first piece of silverware for the season in the Community Shield and has clearly made some interesting signings, not least of which being the £89 million capture of Paul Pogba on Monday.

Arsene Wenger's Invincibles team of 2003/04 is the only side to go unbeaten through an entire Premier League season and Mourniho wants to better them this term.

And speaking after the 2-1 win over last season's Premier League winners Leicester, where new boy Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the winning goal in his first competitive match for the club, Mourinho said he intends to continue his winning ways at Bournemouth.

He said: "My ambition is a stupid ambition, I have to confess, because it is an impossible ambition. My ambition is to win every game, so my ambition now is to win against Bournemouth.

"That will be very difficult. Can we win? We have to think about that. After Bournemouth, it doesn't matter about the result, we will play against Southampton and we want to win.

"We want to win every game. It is a very stupid motivation but if you look in a different perspective then it is what we have to do - improve, improve, improve and every match we will try to win."
