Jose Mourinho believes youngster will stay for years to come

Jose Mourinho believes youngster will stay for years to come

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez has suggested that he is prepared to copy the overly-defensive tactics used against Manchester City last month in this weekend's meeting with fellow big boys Manchester United. There are too many teams involved.

"I thought it could be a massive achievement (even in September), but watching the teams and the differences between the teams, the experience of the different clubs, now you realise it is even more hard. Well, if there were two or three teams that were much deeper down the pile perhaps it could be better".

Speaking to MUTV at the Aon Training Complex on Friday, Mourinho revealed there were "no fresh injuries" following the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town last weekend.

At the back, January signing Dubravka has had a week to settle in at St James' Park and despite a debut against Manchester United being something of a baptism of fire, he was brought to challenge for the starting XI and he can be expected to start behind an unchanged back line.

Newcastle United are on the verge of the relegation zone and in dire need of points.

Asked if he had come to Newcastle to prove himself all over again, Slimani said: "Yes, that's true, I hope I can show what I'm capable of".

Slimani, who joined the Magpies on loan from Leicester City until the end of the season on transfer deadline day, has been unable to fully train with his teammates this week as he continues to recover from a minor thigh problem.

United will travel without Daley Blind, Marouane Fellaini, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly.

Man Utd have kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 matches (Premier League).

Benitez and Newcastle will take confidence from Mourinho's dismal record on Tyneside, which has seen him draw three times and lose three times following his two spells with Chelsea.

Midfield: Paul Pogba was surprisingly dropped for the win over Huddersfield but the Frenchman should see himself recalled to the starting eleven against Newcastle on Sunday.

Last month's defeat to Tottenham is the only blemish on United's 2018 to date, with no goals conceded in their other six league and cup games so far this year, all of which have been won.

Is this it? Will Jose Mourinho finally overcome his St James' Park Curse?
