Jose Mourinho slams THREE Man United defenders after top-four slip up

Jose Mourinho slams THREE Man United defenders after top-four slip up

Swansea City can survive in the Premier League after a 1-1 draw with Manchester United, says Gylfi Sigurdsson.

David Moyes' Sunderland got relegated to the Championship in what Moyes called his "worst day in football".

I don't see anything out of the ordinary there in the number of games played.


"If you're a Manchester United manager you want to play nine games in April because it shows you're performing, you're still in competitions, you're still going for things".

Mourinho has deployed a "cautious" approach in several away games against teams in the top third of the Premier League this season, with the 0-0 draw at Liverpool back in November another example of the former Chelsea manager diluting the attacking intent of his opponents.

"It's about the philosophy and mentality around them", he said of Jones and Smalling after they were ruled out of last week's Manchester derby. "We've got a lot of tough games but as long as we're prepared I'm sure we can go and get the points that we need".

John Higgins clinches victory over Barry Hawkins to reach final
Wilson fell at the same stage to Mark Selby a year ago, and admits it felt a lot like groundhog day against Higgins. Selby can claim his third world title and has cruised through the early rounds of the competition.

Bills select Tre'Davious White in first round of 2017 NFL Draft
With the 37th pick, the Bill addressed a need and selected wide receiver Zay Jones from East Carolina. It wouldn't be surprising if the Bills pick another corner at some point in this draft.

Portland Metro Friday Weather: Sun, here it comes
Rain is likely on Saturday , Sunday and Monday in the Harrisburg area, according to the National Weather Service in State College. Wind will be from the north-northeast at 10-15 miles per hour , making it feel more like the upper 40s at times.

In the attacking front, the mercurial Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who Mourinho bought for free, has scored 28 goals so far - a far better return over Anthony Martial - who scored 17 in his debut season - a year ago.

With four league matches left, United are yet to play second-placed Tottenham Hotspur and sixth-placed Arsenal but can also book a Champions League spot by winning the Europa League.

"It could have gone either way I think but thankfully it didn't cost us too much".

United also lost fellow defender Eric Bailly ahead of Thursday's Europa League first leg semi-final visit to Celta Vigo. The latest setback for Shaw could spell the end for a player who will only have one year left on his contract at the end of the season and it is perhaps best for both parties if Shaw moves on from the club. It does become a worry for you, the sharpness of the team is dropping off.

Meanwhile, The Sun report that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has undergone successful knee surgery and has started his rehabilitation, with his injury not considered career-ending. It was easy to see that and it was easy to see many players in trouble.
