Three Manchester United players out for Newcastle trip

Jose Mourinho

GETTY Jose Mourinho has never won at St James Park

Jurgen Klopp's side sit fourth as they head to St Mary's, with Tottenham's 1-0 north London derby win over Arsenal sending Mauricio Pochettino's men third in the table - and fifth-placed Chelsea are just a point behind Liverpool. I try to feel English football has some cultural thing with tradition and there are some qualities I really like in the game but maybe I have to cry a little bit and protect my players.

"Kenedy is a winger that can play as an offensive full-back when we need".

"In this country, the intensity and the aggression are a great things and the referees are there to sort the good aggression from the really unsafe situations".

On any other day, Pogba's continued run of poor form might quite rightly be held up as United's key problem, but in truth we had just seen the latest reason why they are still a long way short of title material. You buy a flash vehicle and people say that you're a show-off.

"I don't think he is a holding midfielder". No, they have to protect them equally. To let the top players play with freedom?

This comes after City boss Pep Guardiola called for more protection for his players following a slew of risky challenges, particularly the tackle from Cardiff's Joe Bennett on Leroy Sane that has left the German sidelined for six weeks with ankle ligament damage.

"The week was not different from what Paul is every week, he is a good professional and likes to train", Mourinho said, according to the club's official website.

Against Newcastle on Sunday afternoon, the United that Mourinho is not too fond of turned up at St James' Park.

"I can imagine that Benitez is more than pleased with the effort of his players".

"Alexis has a level of experience in the Champions League that my attacking players don't have", he says.

Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark (knee) and midfield man Mohamed Diane (knock) have both been passed fit but full-back Jesus Gamez (ankle) is still not ready to return for the Magpies.

After 33 minutes, Dubravka made a great stop to prevent the visitors from going ahead, thwarting Anthony Martial in a one-on-one after the striker had been played through by Nemanja Matic's superb pass.

Jose Mourinho's side had chances to equalise but could not find a way past a committed Newcastle team that gave their survival hopes a big boost by claiming all three points.

However, Mourinho insisted the more talented players on show at United or City should not get special treatment.
