José Mourinho pulls out stats sheet to defend use of Marcus Rashford

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho waves to the fans after United's 2-0 win against Burnley on 2 September 2018.

Javi Gracia names an unchanged Watford team to the one that beat Spurs before the worldwide break.

A relaxed-looking Mourinho singled out Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini for praise. "Performances with England, of course I'm happy, he played well, he competed well, he scored and especially in a period where he comes with some sadness after his suspension it was very good that he did that". "I'm very happy with the spirit, I'm very happy with something that represents for me the spirit of the team - which is a Lukaku sliding tackle after 50 metres running back to help the team".

Mourinho finished off adding, "The most important thing of all is that the kid is a good kid, a good player, knows what Manchester United did for him, starting in the academy, then Mr Van Gaal's support, my support, the club's support, a new contract, new shirt, and selected for every single match".

Seahawks to sign ex-Eagles LB Kendricks
He and Sonoiki were charged with one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of securities fraud. Besides the legal trouble, Kendricks could also be facing a potential punishment from the NFL .

The defender scored a spectacular goal from a well rehearsed corner routine to give United a two goal cushion at Vicarage Road this afternoon.

United's efforts finally paid off when a free-kick eventually saw Young deliver another cross towards the far post and Lukaku was alert as he got ahead of the Watford defence to put the ball into the net with his stomach.

Paul Pogba, who had three first-half chances, almost doubled two minutes later, but his attempt was pushed over the crossbar by goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Video of the embarrassing gaffe has since flooded social media, but the United boss laughed it off during his pre-match press conference for United's trip to Watford in the Premier League.

Hurricane Florence: Giant, slow-moving storm causes deluge as it makes landfall
It will likely take until Monday, however, before the threat of significant heavy rain is over, and it will still rain at times. About 9,700 National Guard troops and civilians have been deployed, with high-water vehicles, helicopters and boats.

Watford went close to breaking the deadlock when Troy Deeney forced David de Gea to tip over just after the quarter-hour mark.

Matic was sent off for a second yellow card but Watford did not have time to make their extra man count, with De Gea pulling off an outstanding save to tip away a Christian Kabasele header in the dying seconds.

But from the first whistle United looked like the team in form, dominating possession and territory early on even if they seemed to have little threat in the final third as the home side defended compactly and left the Reds depending largely on crosses from wide positions.

Mino Raiola who is the agent of Paul Pogba is said to have assured Barcelona that they have the chance to sign his client in January 2019.
