Bjorn Borg inspires Jose Mourinho's pursuit of Manchester City

Bjorn Borg inspires Jose Mourinho's pursuit of Manchester City

Jose Mourinho was unable to give assurances over Nemanja Matic's chances as it relates to playing against Arsenal on Saturday, but told reporters that the Serbian will be travelling to London with the rest of the squad.

Instead, he has taken inspiration from the recent Hollywood movie about the great tennis rivalry of the late 1970s and early 1980s between Swedish star Borg and John McEnroe of the United States. 'I play a game at a time and is the way to do it.

"I don't know if he can play", Mourinho admitted. It's just Arsenal. Focus on this game'.

'It's hard enough for us to be focused on other things.

Since becoming United boss, Mourinho has not won a single game away from home at one of his top six rivals. "So we must focus on this".

It was then suggested to him that he was like McEnroe and Wenger like Borg, to which Mourinho replied with a smile: "No".

In short, the BBC spread what it acknowledged to be a mere "claim" based exclusively on an unnamed "Western intelligence source". The report was based on intelligence from "Western security sources", the report said.

United are second in the table ahead of the showdown between Mourinho and his old foe Arsene Wenger. "I don't play tennis". "I love tennis, but I don't play tennis".

However, he has rejected claims that he is too conservative with his tactics in big away matches.

'It depends with what you think about risk.

He said: "When we have the ball we are going to attack with 11 players because the goalkeeper knows what to do when we have the ball and when Arsenal have the ball we will defend with 11".

Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Marouane Fellaini will miss Manchester United's trip to Arsenal due to injury.

The Belgian global sustained a knee problem on worldwide duty in October but returned to action against Chelsea last month and had featured in each of the Reds' subsequent three games prior to Tuesday's 4-2 win at Watford, which he missed through injury. "They are a risky team, they have made fantastic results so to beat a team like that you need to be at your best and that's what I want to focus on". "I want him to, he wants to, but I can not guarantee".
