​Mourinho will enjoy Man Utd's visit to Newcastle

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been reflecting on travelling to Newcastle the team who used to be managed by his mentor Bobby Robson.

"I like to go there and like the feeling of going to Mr Robson's home. I like the stadium, I think it's really nice and the atmosphere. They are good and enthusiastic. I lie the Geordies. I lost and drew a few times.

"I hope the result is different but I know the characteristics of the game are not going to be different. They're a good team, they have a very good transfer window with Kenedy and Slimani – two players I know well and who can improve their team. Benitez knows how to get points."
