Newcastle United Hero Martin Dubravka Tackles Permanent Magpies Switch Talk

Jose Mourinho

"And if you're asking me what I prefer, three points against Manchester United or against another team, I would say another team because maybe we talk about a six-pointer". "It's just about that".

Newcastle have won just twice in 28 Premier League meetings, most recently at home in 2012 (D7, L19).

"The goal is a mistake".

"I'm more happy with the points than which team they came against", he said.

And, after holding United at bay for the opening 45 minutes, Newcastle were rewarded for their valiant efforts shortly after the hour mark, when Chris Smalling's ridiculous dive near the halfway-line saw the hosts awarded a free-kick.

Newcastle United's Scottish midfielder Matt Ritchie celebrates after scoring the opening goal during the English Premier League football match between Newcastle United and Manchester United at St James' Park in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, north east England on 11 February 2018.

"I am fully committed to win the award this season of the best-behaved manager on the touchline", Mourinho told reporters on Saturday ahead of Sunday's clash with Newcastle. "Newcastle fight. I loved the way Newcastle fought for 90 minutes and I loved the way my players fought for the last 25 minutes to change the result".

'I like to go there, I like the feeling of going to Mr Robson's home. I like the Geordies, I like to go there. I think now it looks like we are going to a different concept of box-to-box.

Man United start as the warm favourites as you would expect as they look to stay in front of the race to finish 2nd, whilst the Magpies remain right in the thick of relegation trouble and a win for them today would be massive as they look to extend their stay in the Premier League. Rafael Benitez knows how to get points.

Despite his departure, Alexis fondly remembered Arsenal: "There are lots of big clubs, and having played for Arsenal, they are also one of them".

Put to the United boss that it is not easy to manage Newcastle, he said: 'I believe but I am not the person to say why because what I know from the club is the incredible army of fans, a city that lives for the club and supports the club.

"It's really far from the goal, clearly the positions were and the players know the positions they have to be, but we missed the challenge in the air". Benitez hopes such predictions come true, and has outlined how hard the challenge has been.

You buy a flash auto and people say that you're a show-off.
