Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that the natural outcome of Luke Shaw's impressive performances of late is that he will be offered a new contract.

Manchester United will be looking to cement their position in second place with another win when they take on Newcastle United at St James' Park on Sunday.

Slimani is confident his new side can turn the tide by extending Mourinho's six-game winless run in the league on Tyneside.

We started the season well, had a few problems, and you could see for the rest of the teams, like Huddersfield, Brighton, you can't just win games in a row, it is hard.

"I'm serious, I prepare myself, I'm really happy".

Last season, United won the League Cup, as well as Europe's second-tier Europa League competition, securing a slot in the cash-rich Champions League for the current season. Otherwise, it'll be yet another long afternoon at St. James' Park.

"I've seen other teams with one line on the penalty spot and another on the edge of the box". Instead, Mourinho built his own managerial legacy and the rest is history.

The visitors have the best defence this season as they have conceded only 18 goals in 26 games.

The following campaign, a late Titus Bramble goal downed the Blues but again, the league title had already been wrapped up.

United said an exceptional "accounting write off of £48.8 million" had been made with the U.S. corporate tax rate to tumble from 35 percent to 21 percent following Trump's substantive enactment of USA tax reform in December.

"We have showed that we have the quality and conditions to fight until the end of the season", Valencia added.

"We know where we are in the league, so all the players are focused, working hard and concentrating on this game".

Newcastle are hoping Islam Slimani will be available after thigh trouble prevented him from making his debut against Crystal Palace last weekend.

Mourinho must now be keen on the chance to put this hoodoo to bed once and for all.

They last collected three points at St James' against Crystal Palace on October 21 and now sit just a point clear of the relegation zone, although their manager insists there is no need for panic.
