Zlatan Ibrahimovic nears return as Manchester United vow to keep fighting

11 February 2018

Asked if Pogba was injured, Mourinho told Sky Sports: "No, no, no, nothing".

It was also a victory for his rival, Rafael Benitez, which lifted Newcastle, who had not won a home game in the league since October 21, out of the bottom three after slipping into the relegation places earlier in the day thanks to Huddersfield's 4-1 win over Bournemouth.

"I think it's hard".

"In relation to his best position, I had a few laughs over the past few weeks because I heard, I watch, I had the chance to read a few things and I'm not English but I think I understand English enough to understand what you want to say with box-to-box".

The former Liverpool midfielder, now TV pundit, feels the Frenchman can provide a lot going forward but is "absent" when the back four needs protection.

"I like the stadium".

"Now I prepare myself and I am very happy, I am not free of losing my temper or my control in one match". They are good, enthusiastic crowd.

"It was not just up to them, it was also the gods of football, but I repeat it's a attractive thing to win a match the way they did". I heard it for the first time in 2004 when I arrived [in England].

"I hope tomorrow the result is different, but I know that the characteristics of the game are not going to be different. Clearly I know we lost the duel in the air and it's hard to accept that".

Mourinho spoke well of Benitez ahead of the game as tensions between the pair seemingly continue to thaw. What I know is we missed a challenge in the air and missed the second ball. Failing to win their last eight matches at St. James', this is the second worst Premier League run in Newcastle's Premier League history.

Failure to beat a Manchester United side who have lost on just one of their past 13 visits to St James's Park would see the hosts post their worst home run for nearly 19 years. A positive display, providing good support for Gayle upfront. I can remember many of them, some of the best ones in the country - Benitez another example - so it's hard to understand. It's shown in games this season, where the transition from defence to attack has been poor at times, and in big games like Chelsea away at Stamford Bridge or Tottenham Hotspur away at Wembley and Manchester City at home.

"I think a point was what they had in mind".

Defenders Eric Bailly and Daley Blind are both expected to return from ankle injuries before the end of February, although midfielder Marouane Fellaini will not make his comeback until March as he recovers from knee surgery.
