Don’t compare my United side to greats of the past - Mourinho

Manchester City's David Silva encouraged Unai Emery to take a job in the Premier League according to a report on Spanish radio. "We are going to look at when he can come back with us".

"Coming off the World Cup, I played a lot of games over the course of last season and it kind of paid a toll", the 25-year-old said.

The Gunners are back in action three days on from a 2-2 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford that saw them slip out of the top four.

"Jose is a fantastic man, he was the first to send me a message to say, "Welcome back", Ranieri said in his Press conference today.

"United find themselves languishing in eighth position and 18 points adrift of leaders Manchester City after 15 games as pressure mounts on Mourinho, who tried to distance his current squad from the club's great teams of the past amid the Red Devils' inconsistent form".

One impressive trait that United have managed to display this season is an ability to come back, which they twice did to secure a point against Arsenal.

De Gea redeemed himself with two fine saves from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan also had a late Arsenal goal ruled out for offside. That's what we want. "This draw yesterday is only good if we win against Huddersfield".

"At the moment we have a good feeling after a good result, but we needed to close [the week] with a victory on Saturday", Emery said. "It's not easy, because when you stay at the bottom of the table, it's hard for confidence to be 100 percent".

"We were unlucky because we started to play good in the first half, but we had two injured (players, Rob Holding and Aaron Ramsey) and we had to change so it was not easy for us".

Defeat for Chelsea allowed Tottenham to climb into third place - six points behind Liverpool - after a 3-1 win over Southampton.

'The first pretty much 20 seconds, it got the crowd up on their feet and it kind of gave us a buzz after that.

Given United's failure to go on a run this season - Mourinho's side have yet to win three league games in a row and have repeatedly struggled in games they are expected to win - that is a huge gap to make up.
