Manchester United superstar set to reject Barcelona and sign new contract

Manchester United eased in to the fourth round of the League Cup with a comfortable 4-1 victory over Burton Albion at Old Trafford this evening.

Leading 3-0 at the break, United's players visibly took their feet off the gas during the second period, and only managed to score one further goal.

Seven months after winning the League Cup, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted English football would be better off without it.

Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough says there are similarities between his father Brian and Jose Mourinho as he prepares for a daunting trip on Wednesday to face Manchester United in the League Cup.


Manchester United have won four of their opening five Premier League games to leave them joint top of the table alongside bitter rivals Manchester City.

Mourinho was not alone in his call for the check on the Carabao cup as Spurs chief Mauricio Pochettino also claims that neither domestic cup was a priority this season.

"We are hearing that around the Premier League table but we're also hearing that from a European perspective as well, in terms of interest in the Champions League and in Europa rights".

"So we just want to win it, and while the result was open we did it in a strong way".


Known more for his defensive strength and aggression, Herrera was a surprise creator for United last season.

Ethan Ampadu became the first Chelsea player born this millennium, a week after his 17th birthday, on a night when Eden Hazard shone on his first start of the season after his broken ankle. "If we don't win it it's because the opponents are better than us".

"Year-on-year, BT are closing the gap in regard to number of live games but the data shows that regardless of who you support, Sky are likelier to televise more of your team's matches".

"I think just the way they go about it and the way that they deal with things in such a no-nonsense manner", he said. Jose Mourinho's men have been in a fine form this season and now share the top spot in the Premier League table with rivals Manchester City.
