This Saturday, in the late kick-off, Manchester United welcome Newcastle United to Old Trafford for a Premier League fixture.

If, as we hope, Manchester United avoid defeat, a new record of 38 matches unbeaten at Old Trafford will be registered,

That figure exceeds anything the legend that is Sir Alex Ferguson achieved.

However, at his pre-match press conference ahead of the clash with a Rafael Benitez managed Newcastle, Jose Mourinho played down setting that milestone, remarking,

‘We don’t play for records. If we concede a goal and we score two at least I am happy. We defend as a team. Our numbers show exactly that.

‘The objective is to win, not to not concede. It is not an obsession. We lost the last match at Chelsea. We need the points, we have a difficult match. We have to try and get the points we need.’

And set that record Jose in the process, yes?
