Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho addresses problem with Newcastle and backs Rafa Benitez

'Here for Years' - Jose Mourinho Publicly Backs Luke Shaw for Long-Term Future at Man Utd

Manchester United recorded their 15th clean sheet of the campaign, and their fifth in six fixtures, last weekend against Huddersfield.

Asked about rumours having English worldwide left-back Luke Shaw (22) leave next summer, Manchester United boss, José Mourinho: "I know Shaw since he started playing Premier League for Southampton". Ahead of their latest meeting on Sunday, The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at the encounter.

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez has suggested that he is prepared to copy the overly-defensive tactics used against Manchester City last month in this weekend's meeting with fellow big boys Manchester United. "Hopefully Newcastle stay up, the takeover happens, Benitez stays and the club can become established in the Premier League once more and not a yo-yo team".

Ciaran Clark and Mohamed Diame have recovered from knocks sustained at Palace and are available, while Benitez is pondering a change between the posts.

The club are 12 points behind league leaders Paris Saint-Germain and finished bottom of their Champions League group without recording a single win in the competition.

The Brazilian played a key role in Monaco's title-winning 2016/17 season in France, and according to the Mirror's Football Spy was linked with Jose Mourinho's Red Devils in January. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is back in training but the 36-year-old isn't in contention just yet.

Mauricio Pochettino Very Happy To Give Harry Kane A Break
I haven't seen it yet because I always prefer to be focussed on the game and then see what happens in the next". At a press conference, the 45-year-old told reporters: "Yes, it's important to have all the players fresh".

Mourinho added: "Paul had a very professional behaviour and this week was not different to what Paul is every week". Instead, he is likely to be given a free role in the hole behind Romelu Lukaku, tasked with wreaking havoc with his constant movement and passes through the half spaces.

Newcastle return to action on Sunday afternoon when they entertain Manchester United in a huge clash at St James Park. In fact, Rashford has played in nearly every Premier League match this season - missing only last month's loss to Spurs.

"They are a good, enthusiastic crowd, I like the Geordies". I like to go there, but I couldn't win, I lost and drew a few times.

A fine start in the northeast.

An exhilarating five-goal thriller lit up the London Stadium as Newcastle snatched all three points to put an end to their woeful run of results.
