Mourinho doesn't know best team - Phil Neville

"Arsenal are a fantastic football club and they play fantastic football but I always think that over the last 10 years, at the most important moments in seasons or in games, they've always failed", said Neville who was speaking to promote his new book "Class of 92: Out of our league - our journey back to the heart of the game".

But by then, he'd picked up a knee injury during England's 3-0 win over Scotland the night before, causing him to miss Tuesday's match against Spain, and Rooney is now doubtful for the Arsenal game.

Asked about Ibrahimovic's unavailability, Wenger instead focused on the man who will be looking to prevent Arsenal getting their first league win at Old Trafford in a decade.

He said yesterday: "In the Premier League - just Premier League - tomorrow is a match between two managers with the best record". Arsene Wenger and the lads have also answered a few questions and proved wrong some doubts that were being aimed at us by the football press, like when we changed tactics and played on the counter attack to win a game against a big rival way to Man City. Mr Wenger has that respect from all of you, I don't think I have, especially because my last Premier League title was 18 months ago, not 18 years ago. I don't think about previous records, we have some injuries but I'm not crying about the players we have or don't have. "Not 18 years. I don't get that respect".

Mayweather says he has no hunger for a ring return
Retired former world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. met with the president-elect of the United States, Donald Trump . But Mayweather, as he said before (this phrase clearly being one of his favourites!) is enjoying life as a promoter.

Marcus Rashford is in line to start for Manchester United when they welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford on Saturday - but this time Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will know all about the England forward. For Wenger, he has looked towards the usually contrasting principles of respect for people and respect of money to build his club.

In the same period, Mourinho has won only nine, drawn six and lost 12 of the 25 League fixtures he was in charge of his before the complete capitulation at Chelsea, which led to his sacking last season and since his stumbling start during his early reign at Old Trafford. I had lots of offers. I won in domestic competitions. I waited for this chance. I won cups with every club. I want to win here. "It takes time for a group of players to assimilate". Sometimes players come back stronger than when they left because something positive happened. Other times frustrations because they didn't play, because the result was bad. Arsenal have been on an excellent unbeaten run since the opening weekend of the season while United have been hugely inconsistent so it's hard to know which way this one will go, however, I have a feeling it will end in an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Mourinho refused to talk about the England centre-back, who it is reported may not be play again before Christmas having broken a toe so badly in two places.

"Chris Smalling you can not ask, you can not ask because you have your sources, you trust your sources, you believe in your sources, you write what your sources tell you and you did that for 15 days".
