Jose Mourinho talks up 'happy Manchester United camp'

He never mentioned that to me.

By the end of his time at United, he did neither.

If he makes his league debut for United, he could become the third player to score against Spurs for different clubs in the same season (Eric Cantona in 1992/93 and Benito Carbone in 1999/00).

Spurs are coming off a disappointing pair of results, drawing with Southampton in the league and League Two Newport County in the Cup.

That was nearly a month ago.

Mauricio Pochettino will lead his men out against Manchester United on Wednesday and will hope to defend his home turf against a formidable Red Devils attack now boasting Chilean hotshot Alexis Sanchez.

"Until now, he has played in a wide role", Wenger said, "but he can certainly absorb that role in a kind of winger or playmaker".

Eggert said she had told a few close friends about the allegations at the time, but "they didn't have a good reaction to it". Eggert, who claims that Baio began molesting her when she was just 14, recounted the disturbing allegations to Kelly.

It comes as the Ministry of Defence is under pressure to avoid cuts that could be coming from the Treasury. In a few years time there will be eight million homes that would be dependent.

And reports claim the club have tried to tempt Fellaini to stay by offering him a new two-year deal on £130,000 a week - over £30,000 a week more than what the player now earns at Old Trafford.

At least that is what his national team coach thinks.

"I'm happy with his contribution, he is being a great professional for us", the United manager added. Their recruitment of players has been very good, and largely from these islands, with a spine that was made up of Butland, Shawcross, Whelan, Allen and Crouch.

And lastly, Mourinho says that Marouane Fellaini wants to stay at United. "There will not be so much pressure on him defensively".

The 24-year-old, who netted his first goal against United at White Hart Lane last term, has had the most shots of any player in the Premier League this campaign (133) and the Reds defence will need to keep him quiet. When I arrived one-and-a-half years ago, [they said], "Mata is in trouble, in trouble, in trouble", and now he's getting an extension of one more year. Spurs, meanwhile, has picked up just three points from its five games against the league's other big six members this season. It's also our 50th match at the national stadium overall, with the record to date standing at 22 wins, 12 draws and 15 defeats - scoring 73 goals and conceding 55 in the process. Arsenal is a fresh start.

Sanchez returns to north London as he makes his second appearance for United, with the travelling party given a boost by the January signing of the ex-Arsenal forward.

He put in a man-of-the-match performance on his debut in a 4-0 FA Cup victory over Yeovil Town at Huish Park on Friday night. A much sterner test awaits in the form of Tottenham in the league on Wednesday, but it was still encouraging for Sanchez. United were porous against Burnley and prevailed only via an Anthony Martial starburst.
