Mourinho: Me And Wenger Are Like Borg Vs Mc Enroe

Nemanja Matic a Doubt, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Marouane Fellaini Out vs Arsenal

Jose Mourinho was unable to give assurances over Nemanja Matic's chances as it relates to playing against Arsenal on Saturday, but told reporters that the Serbian will be travelling to London with the rest of the squad.

On Thursday, England boss Gareth Southgate spoke about Jones, saying he had "massive empathy" for Mourinho, while also stressing he had "every trust in our medical team that they make the right calls". If they play with the vigour and confidence and the pressing game they played against Spurs, they should beat United.

Jose is well-known for playing for a draw away at his Top Six rivals, but Wenger shrugged off any talk of Mourinho "parking the bus" "No, I don't expect anything special." he said.

Arsenal never used to have a good record in games against Mourinho, but we have now won our last two fixtures at the Emirates against them so we shouldn't fear the Portugese big mouth any more. "I think it's the way to do it", he told a news conference on Friday. It's hard enough to be focused on other things.

It was then suggested to him that he was like McEnroe and Wenger like Borg, to which Mourinho replied with a smile: "No".

"I haven't seen them a lot and it is not down to me to judge the way they play". I would go for the game one game at a time and I would go for the most important game now. "I don't play tennis".

Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Marouane Fellaini will miss Manchester United's trip to Arsenal due to injury.

"It depends what you think about risk", he said. Because everybody has to defend and attack, especially in modern football.

The United manager, meanwhile, could be without Nemanja Matic for the match at Arsenal, after the midfielder asked to be substituted in the second half of Tuesday's 4-2 win at Watford with a muscle injury. "Let's see the feeling before the match, let's see the warm up, I hope he can (play)".
