JOSE’S JOB 

Mourinho has claimed HE could have played as well as David De Gea in goal against Young Boys.

But the Special One did admit De Gea’s 70th minute wonder save was probably out of his reach.

WRITHING IN AGONY

Alexis Sanchez has been ruled out for six weeks after he suffered a hamstring injury during training on Thursday.

SunSport have exclusively revealed that his scream after the incident left his team-mates shell-shocked.

DIO-GO GET ‘EM

Mourinho revealed that Diogo Dalot is back from injury and fit to face Southampton. 

The 19-year-old has not played since the Reds crashed out of the Carabao Cup at the hands of Derby County in September.

ZLAT PREM SNUB

SunSport have exclusively revealed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic snubbed a move to Man City eight years ago.

Pep Guardiola desperately tried to flog him from Barcelona despite his £56.5million transfer fee the year before.


PLANE SAILING 

Manchester United stars flew to Southampton on Friday – after an irritating wait at the airport.

The Reds were unable to take off immediately because a Manchester City plane was blocking them in.

JOSE’S DEF-INCE

Paul Ince has hit back at pundits that criticised Jose Mourinho’s reaction to Marcus Rashford’s miss on Tuesday.

The ex-United midfielder claimed that Sir Alex Ferguson would have also hammered his players for it.

NO DIEGO 

Mourinho believes that Morouane Fellaini is now getting the credit he deserves. 

The midfielder scored the winner against Young Boys – but the boss was quick to joke that he “is not Maradona.”
