Jose Mourinho refuses to disclose team news to MUTV

Jose Mourinho refuses to disclose team news to MUTV

Dixon believes the United boss is under intense pressure but will stay until it's impossible for the Old Trafford outfit to qualify for the Champions League.

Mourinho has made Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof his first-choice pairing this season but Koulibaly is a better defender when compared to the two.

Mourinho's injury problems are not restricted to his defence, with Alexis Sanchez sidelined because of a hamstring tear and Marcus Rashford doubtful because of an ankle problem.

Four Wednesdays - and three Premier League games without a win - later, that fire is raging once more, amid stories of Mourinho's own rage after another comeback from defeat at Southampton.

He added: "I doubted us [against Spurs] but I'm not going to do that again ever, especially under Unai". If you're going there as an Arsenal fan and you're not confident we're going to beat them, I don't know what you're thinking.

"Valencia is not playing".

United's 2-2 draw with Southampton over the weekend left them eight points behind the top four, and the Red Devils have to beat the Gunners to close the gap. "At the end of the season the top six will be done by the six teams we all know have that responsibility to finish in the top six".

United host Arsenal on Wednesday in a game with huge stakes, so it's a wonder whether Mourinho will start Pogba or not.

In comparison, Liverpool spent £167m, Chelsea £128m, Arsenal £68m and Manchester City £63m while Tottenham did not sign a single new player.

"It's a very hard match for us", admitted Mourinho.

Memorably, United did finish 6th in Mourinho's first season in charge of the club.

Mourinho does seem to be trying everything to get us back into the groove of things.

"A football player is paid - and very well paid - to be a football professional".

"He also told him 'you don't play, you don't respect players and supporters and you kill the mentality of good, honest people around you'".

"I disagree totally with that question". Were they dishonest players?
