Man Utd news LIVE updates: All of the latest from Old Trafford

Saturday December 2

Mourinho on Lukaku

08:30: Jose Mourinho insists he’s not worried by Romelu Lukaku’s goal drought for Manchester United.

The Belgian has failed to get on the scoresheet in 10 of his last 11 appearances for the Red Devils.

But Mourinho is not putting any pressure on him to hit the target when United face Arsenal today.

“No, he’s going to score soon,” he said.

“No problem. If it’s Saturday, if it’s Tuesday, it’s it next week, I don’t know. 

“But he’s going to score soon and no problem at all.”

Arsenal vs Man Utd prediction

7:40: Liverpool icon Mark Lawrenson has tipped Arsenal and Manchester United to play out a draw today.

“This is a huge game, between two sides in the top six who are in good form, so you know what I am going for here – a 1-1 draw,” Lawrenson told BBC Sport.

“The Gunners, in particular, are flying but I am still waiting for the moment where they slip up.

“United are on a good run too of course, but it is the sort of fixture where you look at the way Arsenal are playing and think Jose Mourinho would take a point.

“That is what I think he will play for and I don’t think Mourinho will care if a draw means Manchester City extend their lead at the top of the table.

“He will look at this game in isolation, and see a point as a good result.”

Pogba Arsenal revelation

6:55: Manchester United star Paul Pogba has admitted he used to support… Arsenal.

“In France, they were very big – they had a lot of French players,” Pogba told BBC’s Football Focus.

“I was a big fan of Arsenal, Thierry Henry, I was watching him.

“I was a little fan, not a crazy fan, but I was watching a lot of Arsenal games.

“They have always been a great club.”

Ozil transfer plan

06:10: Manchester United want to sign Arsenal star Mesut Ozil when his contract expires at the end of June 2018.

That’s according to The Telegraph, who say Jose Mourinho sees the German as the ideal man to play No 10 at Old Trafford.

Ozil will enter the final six months of his Arsenal contract in January and is unlikely to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Mourinho is said to be keen on a reunion with the playmaker having managed him at Real Madrid.

United are unwilling to stump up a £25m-plus fee for Ozil in the new year but are planning to snap him up on a free in the summer.
