Jose Mourinho told what Alexis Sanchez problem is ahead of Arsenal clash

Jose Mourinho told what Alexis Sanchez problem is ahead of Arsenal clash

The pressure is again mounting on Mourinho, whose United side are winless in three Premier League games and sit eighth in the table. "We don't need to waste points where we don't need to waste".

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at the two managers ahead of the clash at Old Trafford.

"I don't know if I said [that] or if I didn't, but if I used that word it is not what I feel at all".

Mourinho refused to respond to reports he had branded midfielder Paul Pogba a "virus" in the dressing room after United's 2-2 draw at Southampton on Saturday and, asked if he believed his squad were still behind him, he claimed only "dishonest" players would not pull for their manager.

I said my hopes and targets were by the end of December to be in that position [in the top four].

In an explosive rant, Mourinho also said Pogba kills the mentality of his teammates when he plays games. The player's colossal showings at the back have played a key role in the Partenopei's rise in recent seasons, and he is now widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the world.

"The investment Everton made was phenomenal, and obviously there was a great improvement in that team from last season in relation to this, but I don't think Everton will be in front of Manchester United at the end of the season", he said. Or how? I don't play that game.

In comparison, Liverpool spent £167m, Chelsea £128m, Arsenal £68m and Manchester City £63m while Tottenham did not sign a single new player.

"I disagree totally with that question".

Both sides have shown their battling qualities this season, displaying them as recently as last week, Arsenal coming from 2-1 down to beat Spurs and United coming from behind again, this time at Southampton to get a share of the points.

The draw at the weekend away to Saints, who then sacked Mark Hughes, coupled with Arsenal's win against Spurs left the Red Devils eight points behind the top four.
