Benitez: I'd rather Newcastle beat relegation rivals than Man Utd

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho to sit down with Anthony Martial and give assurances over future after difficult spell

Hello good afternoon, the week 27 fixtures of the English Premier League continue this afternoon with Manchester United taking on Newcastle United at 14: 15 pm (GMT).

Matt Ritchie's 65th-minute goal consigned the Red Devils to their fifth league defeat of the season.

Mourinho has lost half of those matches and hopes to belatedly triumph in the north east when going toe-to-toe with old foe Rafa Benitez at a stadium that holds a special place for the United boss given his association with Sir Bobby Robson. "I like to go there and like the feeling of going to (former manager) Mr (Bobby) Robson's home". He was composed and that gave confidence to the team.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils made just one signing in the winter window, Chile global - Alexis Sanchez, despite never scoring against the Magpies, Sanchez usually performs particularly well, and alongside the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and the ever-controversial Paul Pogba, you would expect the Red Devils to pick up a comfortable win against relegation-threatened Newcastle. "(Rafa) Benitez knows how to get points so I think it is going to be hard".

"They gave their lives to keep a clean sheet", he added.

United were guilty of wasteful finishing with Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez the chief culprits and were denied a stoppage-time equaliser when the outstanding debutant keeper Martin Dubravka prevented an own goal from close range.

"(It) Means you have to defend well, have the physical conditions to go to the other box, where you have to be good at scoring, creating, heading and then, when your team loses the ball, you have to go to the other box.

Mourinho states Pogba's case for the defence
For me, it was preparation of the games. "I've settled in well and am keen to help the team climb the table". Mourinho spoke well of Benitez ahead of the game as tensions between the pair seemingly continue to thaw.


Marcus Rashford is an early doubt for Sunday's game after reportedly suffering a muscle injury against Huddersfield.

Jose Mourinho is still without Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marouane Fellaini through injury.

Poll Who was your Man of the Match?

What a win for Rafael Benitez's relegation strugglers.

"I think to an extent he is bound to be targeted by defenders because he is a talented player and an obvious danger to opponents". He brings an element of surprise to the home side which will pose some challenges on Sunday to the visiting team and whether that could influence the outcome remains to be seen.

Mark Lawrenson believes Paul Pogba's season has been derailed by the Manchester United midfielder's hamstring problem back in September.
