Man Utd boss Mourinho axes Martial: Alexis must play

Manchester United's Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot controls the ball during the UEFA Champions League group H football match between Young Boys and Manchester United at The Stade

Manchester United secured successive Premier League victories for the first time this season with a 2-1 win at Watford last weekend. Jose Mourinho has galvanised his troops well and he'll be looking to get back to winning ways at Old Trafford too. Asked whether this was down to the Lindelöf-Smalling partnership, Mourinho said: "No, I think the team as a team is resolving the defensive problems better than before".

Nuno - who shares the same agent, Jorge Mendes, with Mourinho and is actually his oldest client - is achieving that at Wolves who have collected eight points, and lie ninth in the Premier League, after being promoted from the Championship, which they dominated. Rojo did play for the U23's last week but is still not ready for first team action just yet. I'm confident they will take points off our competitors.

"To all the players that were in the squad [at the time] - he was a big inspiration".

The plaudits have been coming thick and fast and I'm not surprised.

Maybe they have had a chat in the dressing room, maybe the players have upped their game but the manager has done something to change the mindset of the players and he seems to have galvanised them. On all the evidence to date, Wolves are far from relegation fodder and I can see why they're odds-on to finish inside the top-ten.

The 19-year-old full-back impressed observers with the composure and confidence he showed on his debut for Manchester United, but Mourinho explained his reasons to leave him out for Saturday's home game against Wolves.

Under right terms, Kavanaugh accuser may testify after all
The Democrats, all of whom served as prosecutors or state attorneys general, noted that President George H.W. Brett Kavanaugh's accuser is allegedly at fault for not coming forward sooner, according to Donald Trump .

Everyone has had their say on all the issues that were there at the club, everyone had their say on Pogba and Martial and Shaw, and whether that's a case of the manager saying to those players "go out and prove me wrong" it seems to be working.

City missed Guardiola's presence on the sideline this week, and for all the talk in the early part of the season that Mourinho was a distraction and a problem, whatever he has said, he has that team behind him now.

"I think the happiness, the confidence, the self-esteem was what pushed him to play the first match nearly without training against Leicester and played a very good match".

But Jimenez says Wolves will travel there with the full belief that they can earn all three points. They haven't been taking their fair share of chances at the other end though.

"It's an honour that he speaks about me, but it's not about me it's about Wolves against Manchester United".

This has the potential to be an extremely entertaining game but I don't expect to see a glut of goals so odds-against about under in the Over/Under 2.5 Goals market makes some appeal.
