Martial on verge of new 5-year deal at Old Trafford

One of those add-ons was triggered when he scored his 25th goal for United - something he achieved by the end of his second season at the club - but after scoring 17 goals in 49 appearances in his first season in England, Martial has only scored 19 in 87 over the last two years.

United visits Burnley on Sunday after losing at Brighton 3-2 and at home against Tottenham 3-0 in its last two games.

Jose Mourinho says he is still "one of the greatest managers in the world" as he faced up to the crisis that has engulfed him at Manchester United.

He said: "I am the manager of one of the greatest clubs in the world but I am also one of the greatest managers in the world".

But fresh from reminding everyone how many league titles he has won after Monday night's Spurs defeat, Mourinho was in self-promotion mood again this lunchtime when asked what it felt like to manage one of the world's great football clubs.

"Do you ask that question to the manager that finished third in the PL or fourth?..."

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll excited about addition of Brett Hundley
Through three preseason games, Hundley has completed 23 of 37 passes for 263 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Hundley was originally drafted by the Packers in the fifth round (No. 147 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft out of UCLA.

The 22-year-old was fined £180,000 last month after reportedly leaving United's pre-season tour of the U.S. without permission to attend the birth of his second child. "Did you read any philosopher?"

His agent claimed in the summer that the player wants to leave and despite Mourinho wanting to sell the Frenchman, Woodward is believed to have overruled the manager.

He was at Burnley's Europa League defeat to Olympiakos on Thursday and said the Lancashire side were unlucky not to win, given the number of chances they produced.

And when it was confirmed to him that Jurgen Klopp had been asked about his own failure to win the league, Mourinho said: "Because he never won anything in global for example..."

City have won two and drawn one of their opening league games but Guardiola feels the real test begins after the global break. "It was cup final they had a big dream to go, a title they had a big dream to win, because they don't win many".

Fans also took aim at Jones for his performance with the United supporters in disbelief that Mourinho chose to play both England internationals in such a big game against Tottenham.
