Man Utd fans delighted at Jose Mourinho's contract decision for Luke Shaw

And the Old Trafford faithful are delighted with Shaw's potential new contract.

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

And Mourinho says Shaw is doing to enough to earn a new deal.

"Luke is not about changing my mind, it's just the evolution or no evolution of his potential", Mourinho said on Friday afternoon. "It's just about that. I hope the result is different [on Sunday] but I know the characteristics of the game will not be different".

Mourinho also went on to add that he is pleased with the improvement in Shaw's play and stated that the 22-year-old will have a long future with United. "But I try and I make an effort and I'm happy with the way things are going".

"So, I think the natural effect is that he will have his [new] contract and he will be a Manchester United player for years".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says there is "no way" Sunday's opponents Newcastle will be relegated this season.

Benitez said: "I was watching the TV, analysing some tactics from Huddersfield, Burnley, West Ham, Stoke, Leicester, a lot of teams playing defensive against Man City ... that is what you have to do with a team who has 80 per cent possession".

Manchester United are expected to be welcomed by another capacity crowd on Sunday and Ritchie admits he loved playing in front of the Newcastle fans during his playing days due to their passion. I like the Geordies.

Only against Sir Alex Ferguson (8) has Rafael Benitez lost more time in the Premier League than he has against Jose Mourinho (6 - level with Arsene Wenger).

Benitez has brought the best out of Atsu, who has been one of Newcastle United's stand-out players so far this season.

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. What I know of the club, it has an incredible army of fans, a city that lives for the club and supports the club.

"Great atmosphere, but sometimes that atmosphere puts that little bit of tension in the players because they want to do so well".

However, Benitez admits ultimately even the best-laid plan can be ripped apart by individual brilliance, and he is acutely aware that Mourinho has more of that at his disposal this time around. It's hard to understand.
