KXIP vs KKR Live Score

United will also be without Daley Blind this weekend as Mourinho has confirmed the Dutchman is still nursing an ankle problem that's hampered him in recent weeks.

"We're always ready and prepared and, what's more, we have the squad to cope with the amount of games, so it's an exciting period ahead".

"It means that you have to defend well in this box, you must have the physical condition, the desire, the intensity, the stamina to go to the other box and in the other box you have to be good - scoring, creating, heading and so on and so on". You have to be good in this box and have to be good in that box.

"And when your team loses the ball you have to go to the other box". That's not a box to box. "That's a box in the box and stay in the box and doesn't move from the box!" I think this country produced a lot of box to box players. "I think nowadays, with some pundits, some agents, some family members, I think the concept of the box-to-box is changing a little bit". Box-to-box are not my words.

Joselu could also return after missing the draw against Crystal Palace last time out due to a virus, per Lee Ryder at the Chronicle.

The 22 year old has been forced to play out on the left wing despite his preference to play as a striker which is understandable due to Romelu Lukaku being the first choice in that position. On Monday, former United captain Wayne Rooney described Pogba as a "classic box-to-box player" who can "do a bit of everything really well if he has that freedom where he doesn't have to think too much about his defensive role". When people ask his best position: he's a midfield player. It doesn't matter the tactical system the team plays.

"Between me and Paul there are no confusions - he is a midfield player and that's it".

"Paul had a very professional behaviour and this week was not different to what Paul is every week", said Mourinho, which suggests that the £89 million player is set to be recalled for tomorrow's game away to Newcastle United. "It;'s hard to play a midfielder with more potential than Paul".
