Deschamps unfazed by mounting Pogba-Mourinho feud

Manchester United named a strong starting line-up for their Champions League clash with Valencia

Stories in the press have irritated Mourinho significantly and after weeks of intense questioning the coach appears to have taken a measure to get back at them.

There have also been public disagreements with star player Paul Pogba and, this week, club legends such as Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand, who have been critical of the team's performances.

'The results they had against the top teams didn't get them points, yet this season but gave them very close results and very hard matches for the opposition.

"The decision is up to the manager and you've got to respect it".

Chilean global Sanchez, who was part of a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan going to Arsenal in January, has endured a horror start to his Old Trafford career.

Zinedine Zidane is the 8/11 favourite to be the next Manchester United manager, with Antonio Conte at 8/1 and Arsene Wenger 10/1.

"I'm not confident and the market closes today so it is time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed, so I will have to focus on the players I have".

The players attempted to show a united front before kick-off by breaking with tradition and taking part in a pre-match huddle.

With only four goals in seven Premier League matches so far, nobody will be more surprised than Newcastle fans if Rafa's team manage three goals. And they're getting away with it.

While the Portuguese was pleased with the commitment levels of his attackers, he felt his midfield trio of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Marouane Fellaini were too slow in possession and lacked the creativity to break down Valencia.

"If they lose on Saturday evening, particularly if it's a bad loss, there will be a decision made on Jose Mourinho's future very quickly".

"We are in a position that we can do much better than that and to do that we need points, points that we lost especially in the last two Premier League matches with one point out of six".

"The signs are not looking good for him".

"There's what's happening at their clubs but that doesn't just depend on them", said Deschamps.
