Jose Mourinho "angry" over Premier League scheduling?


Henrikh Mkhitaryan has suggested that Jose Mourinho has ditched last season's tactic of publicly criticising his Manchester United players.

In his own press conference, the boss refused to confirm whether Mkhitaryan would start against CSKA - stating he had merely selected the player for media duty because he is fluent in Russian.

"I'm not saying that Mkhitaryan starts tomorrow". I try to make life easier for you, especially the Russian media.

Mkhitaryan was asked whether he had an explanation as to why his form in Europe is better than his domestic form.

His bright start is in contrast to last season when he struggled to adapt to the demands of English football. "This season is different", said Mkhitaryan. Work hard in every game, do the things we need to do in the right way and wait for the other teams to lose points along the way.

"Maybe because of that I could give more assists in the last 15 minutes". City travel to Italy to play Napoli on the first Wednesday in November but they do not then play Arsenal in the Premier League until the Sunday afternoon.

However, when it was suggested to the 28-year-old on Tuesday that his form in domestic games does not match those in Europe, he insisted that will not be the case this term.

By contrast, Liverpool play Spartak Moscow in the Russian capital on Tuesday but then do not face Newcastle United at St James' Park until 4.30pm on Sunday, which gives Jürgen Klopp's side nearly 50 hours more respite than United, which has left Mourinho exasperated.

However, rivals Manchester City's Prem match against Watford that preceded their trip to Feyenoord was the only other fixture to be scheduled for the same time on a Saturday following a Wednesday Champions League game.

And he also made it clear that United were not simply making up the numbers in this season's Champions League. "Of course the Champions League is not the same tournament, the Europa League is a bit different", Micki said.
