Mourinho hits back at his critics

Mourinho hits back at his critics

Marcin Wasilewski is banned after his midweek red card against Chelsea, while Nampalys Mendy will not be risked.

Ranieri has mainly remained quiet but did launch a defence in 2008 when he said he did not need trophies to be sure of himself.

"[Drinkwater] signed a new contract and everything is normal". But the champions haven't started well on their travels this season, losing at Hull and Liverpool.

"Rooney's form is like Man United's form".

However Rooney's reluctance to hand in a transfer request or publically declare his desire to leave meant the move broke down and Mourinho was made to wait another three years to finally coach the forward.

Ander Herrera, one of the goalscorers against Northampton who is expected to keep his place against Leicester, said: "We are more positive and more optimistic". Why are we scared to go there? I am helping so many people.

"I'm a bit surprised that Pogba went back", Nani said. It is very bad show.

Herrera said: "We had a bad week and we want to be positive".

The comments will add a certain piquancy to Arsenal trip to Old Trafford on November 19 for Wenger's first meeting with Mourinho as manager of Manchester United.

Leicester's solitary win in the last 16 competitive meetings came in September 2014 when they triumphed 5-3 at home in the Premier League.

However, as he prepares to take his side to Old Trafford for Saturday's league meeting, Ranieri has dismissed the idea that there is any lingering animosity between the two - though he is keen to avenge August's Community Shield defeat at Wembley.

"The cup games against lower-league teams can be hard", explained Rooney. "I'm very pleased with them and we think we can do a very good season this season", he said.

"Why? Do you remember in the summer when we had the Soccer Aid, I managed the Rest of the World team against Jose's English side". "It was a hard match, but overall a positive performance". "We had a bad week, a bad eight days where we've lost three games, and it's important now we react well to that and come through that".

The Portuguese boss has been involved in a number of high profile incidents during his reign in the Premier League and Rob Beasley, author of Jose Mourinho, Up Close and Personal, has chronicled a number of the events in a new book.

Jamie Vardy has scored in three of his four games against Manchester United in all competitions.
