This Sunday, in the early afternoon fixture broadcast live by Sky Sports, Manchester United face Newcastle United in a Premier League fixture.

Although Jose Mourinho is looking for his side to take the three points on offer, a visit to Newcastle is always something special for Jose.

At his pre-match press conference, ahead of the trip to the north-east, Jose spoke about returning to the home of the late Sir Bobby Robson, somebody who assisted Jose so much with his managerial aspirations, the Geordie people and the January transfer window signings Rafael Benitez has made, remarking,

‘I like to go there and like the feeling of going to Mr Robson`s home. I like the stadium, I think it`s really nice and the atmosphere. They are good and enthusiastic. I lie the Geordies. I lost and drew a few times.

‘I hope the result is different but I know the characteristics of the game are not going to be different. They`re a good team, they have a very good transfer window with Kenedy and Slimani – two players I know well and who can improve their team. Benitez knows how to get points.’

But Manchester United will win this one won`t they!
