United take advantage as Manchester City held at Burnley

Guardiola's men cruised to a 3-0 win over West Brom on Wednesday, while Manchester United's 2-0 loss at Tottenham left City with a dominant 15-point advantage at the summit.

What Mourinho could not dispute, though, was the fact eyebrows had been raised by his selection of a 21-year-old Academy graduate at the expense of one of the world's most expensive players, who had been dragged off for an erratic performance in the 2-0 defeat to Tottenham.

City were made to pay for an extraordinary miss by Raheem Sterling as they dropped points for just the fourth time in the Premier League this season in a 1-1 draw at Burnley as Johann Berg Gudmundsson's equaliser eight minutes from time cancelled out Danilo's spectacular opener for City. I prefer to look at it in the lovely way of a little kid that arrived here with his mum at nine-years-old for the first training session, 10 or 11 years later the kid is playing in a Manchester United shirt in an important match in the Premier League at home at Old Trafford, so I prefer to look at that perspective. I prefer to look at that perspective. "He was fundamental for us in the way he gave us the desire to recover the ball".

"Paul is a fantastic player". You have to open space by playing simple, so it was a decision to play the kid'.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho compared Huddersfield Town's defence to the "Berlin wall" on Saturday after the Red Devils' 2-0 victory.

"If he can be back by the end of March, I hope we have a big April and a big May still to play in more than one competition".

While Apple suppliers have seen little drag on earnings so far, many expect the full impact to hit in April and beyond. Apple has reportedly slashed its production target for the iPhone X by 50 percent following poor holiday sales.

Sanchez was then fouled by Huddersfield defender Michael Hefele to win a penalty and the Chilean, a January signing from Arsenal, stepped up to take the spot-kick.

Sanchez was exhausted when he returned the dressing room, but his constant running and creativity was appreciated by the home crowd, one criticised by Mourinho for being "quiet". He is a humble guy who doesn't forget where he started and when he was plying in Chile he had hard places to play and hard opponents. It was not the goal of his dreams, but it is a goal.

It was a comfortable afternoon for United, who didn't allow Huddersfield a shot on target.

Pro-Russia Zeman wins Czech Republic election
The Czech constitution gives presidents limited executive powers, but President Zeman has not hesitated to test the boundaries. The 73-year-old defeated pro-European Union contender Jiri Drahos proving popularity of his tough stance against immigration.

There have been suggestions the latter will soon be on his way out of Old Trafford to join Major League Soccer's Los Angeles Galaxy - reports Mourinho had nothing to offer on.
