Juan Mata Signs Contract Extension As He Receives Praise From Jose Mourinho

Mata extends Manchester United stay

England worldwide Rashford has enjoyed a meteoric rise under Mourinho and bagged his 10th goal of the campaign in the FA Cup win over Yeovil, with new signing Sanchez providing the assist.

"We can not buy [Lionel] Messi and Cristiano [Ronaldo] - these are the best players of the last decade", Mourinho said, as quoted by ESPN.

"The kid is having a hell of an experience at every level so an fantastic future waits for him", said the manager. "It's there in midfield where we need to - I'm not saying improve - but we need to get a player to compensate the situation of Michael".

Mata has particularly impressed over the last month and although the arrival of Alexis Sanchez sparked rumours of a move to Valencia or Inter, he has stated his desire to remain a United player.

The Portuguese said: "Spurs are one of the top teams in the country - not a title contender because they are too far away, but I say honestly they are a Champions League contender".

Pochettino would not put a timescale on when Spurs would begin to challenge their rivals but he warned: "In football sometimes you need to be patient and wait a little bit". I think he's used to it.

"I still feel very happy and very proud to be part of this club", he added.

With Badou Ndiaye's move to Stoke City close to completion the Turkish side are in the market for a midfielder to replace him, and AMK say their prime target is Fellaini. In attack we have an wonderful group of players. He is another one, big story when I arrived one and a half years ago - "Mata in trouble, in trouble, in trouble". What a game we have in store for us as one of the iconic Premier League fixtures takes over BT Sport.

While both teams possess huge quality, Jose Mourinho's track-record in encounters against other big six sides suggests we may be in for a low-scoring game.

Hugo Lloris and Christian Eriksen could return after missing the last two games.

Spurs have been handed a number of injury boosts ahead of their encounter with United, with as many as four players returning to contention.

Toby Alderweireld is another expected to be available for Spurs, although an ankle injury could keep Harry Winks out.
