Date of Manchester derby at the Etihad rearranged

Posted March 20, 2017

United's cruel April fixture list sees them host in-form teams West Brom and Everton in quick succession, before travelling to Sunderland on the 9. Ramirez cuts inside, jinks past Bailly and curls a shot destined for the top corner but De Gea does well to get a strong hand to the ball and palms it away for a corner.

Sunday's convincing win had far more talking points than just all three points, though.

Belgium worldwide Marouane Fellaini headed them in front after nearly half an hour's play for his first league goal of the season and Jesse Lingard scored the second just after the hour mark from 20 metres.

Eric Bailly and Rudy Gestede were involved in an altercation when the latter reacted badly to Bailly's physical style of marking at a free-kick.

"I heard what Jose Mourinho said and what the pundits think about it", Klopp told reporters.

United prevailed on the night thanks to a 70th-minute goal by Juan Mata, who finished from close range after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had flicked Henrikh Mkhitaryan's cross towards goal.

After being eased into life in Ligue 1, the 23-year-old has since hit cruising altitude, and his stunning long-range strike against Toulouse FC last weekend was the high point of his nine top-flight appearances to date.

Warming to his theme, Mourinho suggested the compression of matches meant United were likely to lose at struggling Middlesbrough, who on Thursday sacked his former Real Madrid assistant Aitor Karanka. "Maybe we won't win the Europa League, so we have to fight to try to finish fourth".

Lingard joked he had to do the celebration as Marcus Rashford, within earshot, fluffed his lines on Teesside.

James Ward-Prowse pulled a goal back after the break but Tottenham held on for a 10th successive home league victory - their longest run since they won 14 in a row in 1987.

United will obviously not win the Premier League, as it looks like Conte's Chelsea is clearly the dominating team in the Premiership. It lifted Paris Saint-Germain to a 5-0 win in a Champions League group game.
