Mourinho: Martial Has Learned His Role

I've been a player and if I'm in that game, on the pitch and as close to incidents like that as you can get, it's not a penalty.

But United held on to manage just their second win in seven games to alleviate some of the pressure on Mourinho.

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial scored either side of the break to earn United their first league win since the global break, but it was not entirely straightforward as Gylfi Sigurdsson's late strike created a nervy finish at Old Trafford. That's how I know to take penalties.

"But for us in this moment it is is nearly impossible to keep a clean sheet even with the phenomenal goalkeeper we have".

"The thing I like is the desire to take it", Mourinho said.

Jamal Khashoggi: Turkey demands Saudi Arabia reveals whereabouts of journalist's body
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on the Saudis to admit who ordered the killing and where the body is. The Middle East Strategic Alliance (MESA) is meant to serve as a bulwark against Iran and extremism, the U.S. says.


At least Mourinho currently has Martial, who is in the middle of contract talks with United over an extension, enjoying his best form under the current manager with four goals now in his last three Premier League games.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba's unique run-up while taking a penalty has become quite the talking point this season.

"Paul wants to take and that for me is fantastic". He can take 62 steps if he wants.

"The keeper is also a good penalty saver so lets give credit to him".

"We have on us that extra factor that we are Manchester United, but we have to be strong enough and courageous enough to know that it's a game that we can win".

India Test squad for Australia tour announced; Rohit, Vijay, Parthiv return
The two put 79 runs for the second wicket and it seemed as if India may be cruising towards a second win in the series. The two wicket-keepers in the two T20 squads announced Friday are Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik .


The World Cup victor also failed to convert in the victory at Burnley in September and admitted he may have to reassess the heavily debated approach. The last game against Chelsea, we should have won this game, we missed two points.

Fans were disappointed with the result and the performance they saw from some of their players, however, one man appeared to standout for more criticism than others on social media.

"His performance today without the goal would be a good performance, and what I want from him is exactly that".

In a unusual twist, Ramsey is wanted by United but the chances of a New Year swap deal involving Mata - as happened with Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan last January - are looking unlikely with so many other interested parties.
