Jose Mourinho Press Conference Previewing Arsenal (Video)

Manchester United travel to Arsenal for what is the weekend’s biggest fixture in the Premier League. It’s a clash between the second and fourth placed teams in the table. Jose Mourinho met the media a couple of hours ago to hold his weekly press conference and we have the video for you, via YouTube, embedded below. The gist of the session revolved around injury updates and the widely held belief that Mourinho will in fact park the bus tomorrow.

The Portugese answered a reporter question about people who believe that he will be ultra-pragmatic in his approach on Saturday.

There was also talk about tennis, and a movie about Bjorn Borg, which Mourinho recently watched. Mourinho also shot down the narrative that this is a must win game in order to keep pace with Manchester City and stay in the title race. We also learned that Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are not available.

Nemanja Matic is reportedly a doubt.
