Pep Guardiola backs Jose Mourinho to turn things around

Posted September 02, 2018

"If it can happen there, and he's won the league, why can't it happen at Man United where he hasn't?"

"I think we have learnt a lot". It was United's highest finish (2nd) and best points tally (81) since Sir Alex Ferguson retired - it was also a tally that would have won the Premier League title in 2010/11, 2012/13, 2014/15 and 2015/16. That's why on one side it happens because you have something special to win titles but the other side managers are so good it is not necessary to win because good clubs, good players sustain you.

While Dalot isn't obviously the first choice right-back at United, it is imperative that he keeps fit in case senior statesman Antonio Valencia picks up a knock or needs a rest.

Manchester United will be aiming to get back to winning ways in the top flight when the Red Devils take on Burnley away from home on Sunday afternoon.

Jose Mourinho has found himself under intense pressure already following his side's lacklustre displays against Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur.

Martial has been less involved than Shaw, playing only 60 minutes in this season's Premier League, but reports have indicated the forward will soon sign a new long-term contract.

Doing so, Whitbread said, would "provide headroom" to further expand the Premier Inn budget hotel chain in Britain and Germany. In 2006 there were 10,000 coffee shops in the United Kingdom ; there are now 24,000, according to Allegra World Coffee Portal.

According to BBC Sport, Mourinho said: "I am the manager of one of the greatest clubs in the world but I'm also one of the greatest managers in the world".

After Mourinho stormed out of a press conference on Monday after a 3-0 defeat to Spurs demanding respect from the media, the questioning ahead of this weekend's trip to Burnley appeared to be more poking from reporters in the hope of another explosive response.

"It was a cup final".

"I think you saw a team that wanted it to carry on considering how many have been saying that "no-one wants it", but that is the mentally here, we want to win every game that we play", said Dyche. "Juventus are always a big candidate in the European competitions but the investment they made shows they want to win it this time".

"They don't hide", he said admiringly, having previously gone public with his own disappointment at United's failure to land more than one of his transfer targets.
