Mata joins the Manchester United walking wounded list

02 April, 2017, 01:06 | Author: Evan Mason

Mourinho, meanwhile, said he wanted an easier job after United when asked if he would be interested in coaching the Brazil national team once he moved on from Old Trafford.

Allied to the new injuries for Smalling and Jones, United must also do without Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimovic for Saturday's Premier League clash against West Brom at Old Trafford.

"I'm smiling because he [Pulis] is my friend".

It is injuries to Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Juan Mata over the break that cut even deeper.

Jones suffered a toe injury in a training ground incident with team-mate Smalling, who has since been spotted with his right leg in a brace.

It is certainly no time for an injury crisis, with United facing a truly pivotal fortnight. As long as United can keep West Brom out from set pieces, I think they'll ease to a 2-0 win.

"We have things still to play for", Mourinho said ahead of Saturday's match against West Brom.

What Mourinho has achieved so far is making United hard to beat.

This fixture has all the makings of a frustrating home draw masterminded by Tony Pulis. "In the Premier League one more victory we are in the running, one defeat maybe you are not in the running anymore".

The proposed assistance does not include putting U.S. military forces on the ground in this operation, the official said. Human rights monitors say the coalition air raids are to blame for the majority of civilian deaths.


"But it was not hard for me to overcome these difficulties as I knew that sooner or later I would get my chance and I would use that". The 24-year-old, who is now out with a hamstring injury, has taken time to settle at United since returning in August and has yet to justify his massive transfer fee.

"But I'm sure that we are going to do something interesting and to improve our team for next season". Chelsea are on holidays.

"One team had the ball, one team didn't".

"Every match now for us is a big match", he said. We are very solid - we defend very well - we create a lot, but then we don't have consistency in the last third.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says it is not too late for Arsene Wenger to save his relationship with Arsenal's fans and remain in charge at the Emirates Stadium. It is the kind of test for which Mourinho was recruited.

It really is undesirable situation that faces Mourinho; however, with Zlatan approaching the twilight of his career, when people start to cash in their Videoslots Bonus Code, and having two young talents chomping at the bit to make their name's at Old Trafford.

They failed to score against a resolute West Brom side today despite dominating almost the entire game; it was like a deja vu of the Bournemouth game and many others. Pulis' side has done it playing some decent football as well, albeit in a low-scoring outfit that has lost 10 games in the league campaign.

Mourinho's side managed 18 shots but only three on target as they found their attack blunted by West Brom's strong defending, and David de Gea nearly spilled a Darren Fletcher effort into his own net in the closing minutes to compound United's disappointment.
