The equipment was live tracking him down the touchline after his side's 3-2 comeback win in the English Premier League at Old Trafford earlier this month.

Manchester United chiefs are prepared to veto Jose Mourinho's transfer targets for a second transfer window in a row despite the Portuguese coach's criticism of the club's summer business, sources have told ESPN FC.

Mourinho, it seems is on borrowed time at United but a run of strong results could release the pressure off the Special One.

"We estimate that by around 10pm this evening, [Paul Pogba] will move on to the stutter-steps stage", a Manchester United statement to FourFourTwo reads.

Jose Mourinho said on Friday that he is confident United will break into the top four this season.

Asked if he is confident Martial will stay, Mourinho said: 'I don't belong to the discussions of contracts.

"I don't think as a player you could do that, you've got to respect the club and the fans, and also respect your teammates".

The US plane maker said in a statement: "The Boeing Company is deeply saddened by the loss of Lion Air flight JT 610". Relatives are desperate to find traces of their loved ones, but so far only body parts and debris have been found.

The Reds have kept just one Premier League clean sheet this season - only Fulham have a poorer record in terms of shut-outs.

"I think is very hard for example to go to Stamford Bridge and do better what we did in terms of performance, we had three points in our pocket and left with only one".

"I think when you are top four, which I believe we are going to be, then when you..."

Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard were back on the bench against Everton last weekend and Mourinho says the duo are now fully-fit and in contention to start tomorrow afternoon.

Kick-off time is 1:30pm. How many players are having these kind of opportunities to develop their potential?

The Cherries have managed to keep three successive clean sheets to go unbeaten in their last four games and hoist themselves up to sixth place in the table. United have scored in each of their last five on the road and they've scored at least two in each of their last three games so even with Lukaku misfiring, they're still finding the net, but will that continue unabated on Saturday?
