Phil Jones expected to be fit for Manchester United's clash with Huddersfield

Phil Jones expected to be fit for Manchester United's clash with Huddersfield

Mourinho told BT Sport afterwards: "We were in control".

"I brought Scott McTominay who is the same age as Benfica's kids, but the Premier League is a different story".

Mourinho was just as strong when it came to defending Benfica teenager Mile Svilar, saying the Champions League's youngest goalkeeper is a "phenomenon" - despite being culpable for Marcus Rashford's victor.

Conte lashed back out at Jose, essentially telling the United manager to mind his own business and to focus on his own players.

Bereft of cutting edge up front or creativity in midfield without the injured Paul Pogba, United won thanks to a freak Marcus Rashford goal and a solid defensive display.

To be sure, Svilar had also done well to deny Matic and Anthony Martial, as United produced nearly a carbon copy of last Saturday's safety-first display in their 0-0 EPL draw with Liverpool.

Said the Belgian: "I played a good game but could have done better with the goal".

MSU's LJ Scott cleared to play after resolving license issue
Chad Connelly of the East Lansing Police Department said Scott appeared in court Friday to try to get his license issues resolved. Scott admitted a red plastic cup in the center console that contained alcohol belonged to him.

"We had a little bit of a strategy, especially on set-pieces to make him uncomfortable".

"So at corners we tried to crowd him and put him under pressure, and from free kicks we knew he risks a lot".

"Marcus is one of those players who - I have been to Old Trafford a couple of times this season - as soon as he gets the ball you can feel it in the crowd".

Surely the Red Devils will all be laughing now at the Italian for falling for their manager's usual trick and Nicholas believes the Portuguese relishes the mental aspect of the game.

United are second in the Premier League two points behind arch-rivals City and have made a good start in Europe's elite club competition, having won their opening two Group A games against CSKA Moscow and Basel.

"They are getting results, clean sheets and that gives you the foundations to go on and win trophies".

Although he can be hard to work with at times, as Matic has revealed, there is no doubt that his methods bring great success to any club he manages.
