Jose Mourinho Gave One Bristol Mascot A Brilliant Momento Before Kick Off

It may not be right and the FA should do something about fixture congestion but it's delusional to believe that Manchester United will be the only team who will suffer due to their festive schedule.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has talked up the qualities of Leicester City who his side meet in the Premier League on Saturday.

United highlighted their "fixture frenzy" by publishing research on their website showing that "United have a harder time of it than our rivals towards the top of the table".

"We are not the only ones", he said.

"United have won their last three away from home in the league but have actually conceded in their last five and I think there will be goals in the King Power", Owen told BetVictor.

He added: "We did the simple objective study on that and there is a big gap, a really big gap between some clubs and other clubs".

It was, dare I say it, a performance that much closer to some of last season's away performances rather than the efficient, cut-throat displays seen against Watford and Arsenal in recent weeks. "You want me to be punished, right?"

The United boss is already on thin ice with the Football Association for comments made in press conferences.

The Championship promotion challengers set up a semi-final with Manchester City after toppling the holders with Smith's victor rocking a star-studded United side.

The second placed Reds can not afford City to build any bigger cushion, but the gap has not seen motivation dip in their manager's view.

Jose Mourinho's side have little time to recover from their shock 2-1 defeat at Bristol City on Wednesday in the Carabao Cup. Then do we have an FA Cup final or Champions League final to play?

"Nothing more than that we can promise". Depicted by league statistics, United have played 1,176 long balls and stand 12th in line for the most number of long passes played this season. We are not the only ones. So we move on and we move on quickly because tomorrow we have another match.

Apart from that, Michael Carrick and Eric Bailly will assuredly not play a part in the match while it is still doubtful whether or not Fellaini will make a return to first-team action.

City's Jamie Paterson collected the game's first yellow card just two minutes after the restart for a rash challenge on Pogba and United, attacking a packed away end, nearly broke the deadlock when Rashford's deflected free-kick tested Steele.

Midfield: Paul Pogba returned from his suspension last night and the French worldwide should retain his place in midfield but he may play in a slightly more advanced role this weekend. He could be ready to start the match. Bristol City entered this game not being intimidated by one of the top teams in England who has multiple players making more money in a week than Bristol City's entire team.
