Jose Mourinho predicts 'amazing' period for Manchester United


Refraining on commenting over his relationship with Conte, Mourinho just called him a "very good manager".

When you have to play these massive games, you must hope to have all players available.

"I don't want to speak about it, not at all", Mourinho said of his previous spat with Conte during Friday's pre-match news conference.

From the moment Conte's Chelsea thrashed Mourinho's Manchester United 4-0 to kickstart their 2016-17 Premier League title charge, a simmering tension has existed between the pair, who both won the Premier League in their first season in England-and both with the London side.

Jose Mourinho forecasts an "amazing" period for Manchester United as he prepares for a glut of home matches across various competitions.

"About this player I can talk only really well because he played with us last season", said Conte.

Manchester United manager José Mourinho has confirmed that Ander Herrera could be out of actions for up to six weeks as a result of a recent injury that was picked up in Sevilla.

Chelsea trio David Luiz, Ross Barkley and Tiemoue Bakayoko have been ruled out of Sunday's Premier League match against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has hailed Pogba's professionalism amid reports of rising hostility between them.

"De Gea is a very hard goalkeeper to beat but we'll try to get past him in the return leg", said the defender.

Sevilla, however, have lost every away game to Spain's top four this season and during 2017's Champions League campaign were eliminated by Leicester City when they lost the second leg away 2-0 after a 2-1 success at home.

But Mourinho claimed before the Sevilla game he had "doubts" about Pogba after he had ruled himself out of last weekend's FA Cup win at Huddersfield with a mystery illness.

The Frenchman is now undergoing a hard time at the Red Devils, where he has recently found himself on the bench due to poor form. Soon a defeat against Watford and Bournemouth followed, but the Blues eventually picked up the pace and went on to score eight goals in the next three games, conceding just once.

Scott McTominay knows how to play the game, and has duly gushed about the boss that is giving him so much time in the first team.

"I think he has a bad injury".

"Some details are details and some players take five minutes to be ready to play". They don't have shin pads, strapping, they don't have this or that.
