United beat FC Rostov on Thursday to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League but lost Paul Pogba to injury.

Making matters worse for Mourinho, Paul Pogba and Daley Blind suffered injuries in the win over Rostov. Every other country gives its support to teams playing in Europe but I don't think the Premier League gives an "S".

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini ended a 30-game Premier League goal drought with his headed effort against Middlesbrough on Sunday. The Russian Premier League side beat the likes of Bayern Munich and Ajax earlier this season, but posed little threat to United over the two legs. Or are the authorities happy to have just one English club in the Europa League and one English club in the Champions League?

"That gave me energy to score", said the Spaniard, who started and finished the best move of a heavy night for a tired United as they struggled to overcome the Russian side.

In an apparent reference to United's domestic fixture schedulers, Mourinho complained: "We have lots of enemies". We can not even sleep on Sunday morning.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss has won the Community Shield and EFL Cup in his first season at Old Trafford, while his side are in the last eight of the Europa League and favourites to lift that trophy.

At one point, Arkansas' Jaylen Barford appeared to step on Isaiah Briscoe after the United Kingdom player tried to take a charge. Then Fox drained a 17-footer to put United Kingdom up 13-9 at 12:34 only see Arkansas bounce back to tie.

"But today the players have trained well and we look forward to the weekend".

"I think he deserves to be sacked", he said.

Anderlecht president Roger Vanden Stock said the United tie was "the hardest possible draw for us" but believes his side can pull off an upset.

"We were just looking at some of the cup fixtures they've had". Manchester United have gone off the boil in recent times while Middlesbrough must keep winning matches.

Mourinho said Pogba would be out for around three weeks, ruling him out of the trip to Middlesbrough and France's forthcoming games against Luxembourg and Spain. I've been Harry Robinson building you up to this game, I'll let Brandon Sayer take over from here and we'll here intermittently from Danial Kennedy, our man at the Riverside today. "He was one of the players who never had a rest, because he played every game".

"It has allowed that difference in power to be slowly diluted, in a way that Manchester United stopped being the all-powerful Manchester United, and became part of a group of five, six, seven very powerful clubs".
