Peter Crouch reveals what he thinks of this Manchester United side

"I think for both of us, in the years gone past we've been sat in opposite dugouts - not in this stadium - but in other stadiums".

West Ham United captain Mark Noble has confirmed he bears no grudge towards Paul Pogba after their on-pitch "fight", Mirror reports.

"If a player gets sold in summer, they wouldn't leave Manchester United crying".

On the plus side, with one match still to play United have nine more points than they accumulated last season, and second spot is the highest they've finished since winning the title in 2012-13.

The Spaniard has been preferred to England goalkeeper Joe Hart in recent games and he repaid David Moyes' faith in him by shutting out Manchester United.

However defeat in the first Manchester derby saw United slip behind the Blues, who have since gone on to open up an incredible 19 point lead after breaking three Premier League records this week.

The former Manchester United boss has guided the club to survival - yet there remains serious doubt over his position ahead of next season, with the club already starting to identify possible replacements.

The Red Devils did win the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho's first campaign in charge last season.

If United win the FA Cup, it doesn't make or break the campaign in same way the Europa League did past year, but silverware is still vitally important and means those who have been criticising the club and manager throughout 2017-18 have limited weight to support their argument. "They have done a good job".

"I was wrong but we were positive in the game. They don't want to be a club flirting with relegation, and that's understandable", he said.

This was while Martial and Rashford, two of the hottest prospects in football sat on the bench, with rumours they are ready to quit the club circulating.

On one hand, you look at City and see that their four best players from this season were already at the club when Pep Guardiola took charge.

Of course, next season will be crucial on how United judge Mourinho and this side.

While their displays have often left a lot to be desired, one man simply can't understand why everyone is picking on United.
