Man United 'punished' by Premier League festive fixtures - Jose Mourinho

It was a tale of two cities on Wednesday night, as Bristol City sensationally dumped Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup with a 2-1 triumph - then drew Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in next month's semi-final.

Jose Mourinho has claimed that Manchester United's shock defeat at Bristol City will not decide the future of some of his fringe players.

If anything, Manchester United should revel in the festive period because they have the resources and the players to be able to change up their squad and not be horrendously weak.

United highlighted their "fixture frenzy" by publishing research on their website showing that "United have a harder time of it than our rivals towards the top of the table".

Papa John's, which lays claim to being the nation's third-largest pizza chain, could not be reached immediately for comment. Schnatter owns roughly 25% of Papa John's, and will stay on as chairman after stepping down as CEO in January .

United manager Jose Mourinho felt Bristol City had been a "a bit lucky" to prevail in the game, but described their win as a "beautiful day for football".

The Championship promotion challengers set up a semi-final with Manchester City after toppling the holders with Smith's victor rocking a star-studded United side. From now until early January, teams will be competing in four Premier League games over the next two weeks and that may include one or two extra games for League Cup and FA Cup play.

"I don't know, you say, you are the ones, not me", he added. "There are other teams in the same situation as we are and Leicester is one of them". We are not the only ones.

"If we don't, it's finished but until last match of the season we have work to do".

Meanwhile, Hill is 14th in the league in punt return yards and is one of four players in the AFC with a return touchdown. It's the second straight season he's been given the nod after making it last season as a member of the Baltimore Ravens.

The FA also said that Mourinho will face no sanctions following an investigation of comments he made before the derby. Their scoring record on home turf is eye-catching though - their defeat against Crystal Palace only the second time since February that the former champions have failed to net at the King Power Stadium.

Fulham have indicated it would take a bid in excess of £30 million (€34 million) to tempt them into selling their prized asset, with Slavisa Jokanovic admitting on Thursday he is unsure whether Sessegnon will remain at Craven Cottage. They have also been victorious in each of their last three Premier League games with the Foxes - winning 3-0 and 2-0 in their two meetings during the 2016-17 campaign.

Looking back on his time at Manchester United, David Beckham spoke in glowing terms of his relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson despite a "couple of wobbles".
