Jones: United can still catch City

"[He was] good, solid, physically much better, mentally much stronger, tactically understanding much better the game and what we need from him in the different phases and circumstances".

Shaw has played eight of United's last 11 games including five in a row and his return to form and fitness has impressed Mourinho to such an extent that he has shelved his interest in Tottenham's Danny Rose.

While nothing is flawless in a club, Manchester United are run pretty much how Mourinho would want it to be.

Manchester United are close to reaching an agreement with manager Jose Mourinho over a new contract.

Mourinho omitted winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan from the squad amid reports that Arsenal were interested in him as part of a swap deal for Chile forward Sanchez, who is no longer a target for Manchester City according to British media.

Mourinho is now midway through the three-year deal he signed when he succeeded Louis van Gaal in May 2016. It's just a question of the club, the owners, the board, Mr [Ed] Woodward, [and what] they all want, [if] they all are happy with my contribution and they want me to stay beyond the end of this contract.

Mourinho already earns a reported £15m per year and will remain the highest-paid manager in world football on the same financial package.

The former Chelsea boss initially signed a three-year deal with the option of an additional 12 months when he replaced Louis van Gaal back in 2016.

Seven minutes before the interval, United's French winger Martial made it 2-0 with a sweet first-time finish after being set up by Paul Pogba.

Manchester United defender Phil Jones remembers his team's title meltdown six years ago and believes rivals Manchester City's 12-point lead in the Premier League title race can still be overhauled.

Sanchez, who has been at Arsenal since 2014, was left out of the English Premier League game against Bournemouth on Sunday because of the speculation over his future.
