Jose Mourinho to limit Antonio Valencia's Man Utd game time this season

Jose Mourinho to limit Antonio Valencia's Man Utd game time this season

The midfielder repaid his manager's faith with two of United's most outstanding individual performances of last season - one in the 2-0 win over champions Chelsea at Old Trafford and another in the Europa League final against Ajax. Before the November worldwide break, Man United will play against Benfica once more before visiting Chelsea's Stamford Bridge.

While this United side might not play the most attractive football throughout the season, they will surely be tough to crack down.

Tenders for the next three-year period - 2019 to 2021 - go out later this year but deals for Brazil, China, sub-Saharan Africa and the United States have already been agreed. Manchester City and Manchester United lead the way, but can expect to have Tottenham and Chelsea pounce on any potential slip up over the coming weeks.

United, City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham have always been credited with a serious interest in overhauling the current distribution system of overseas TV revenue, arguing that they are the driving force of the Premier League's appeal outside the UK.

"We have to wait for them", Mourinho concluded.

A proposal by Richard Scudamore, the Premier League's executive chairman, for 35 per cent of the overseas TV money to be split according to where a club finishes in the table failed to gain the necessary support at a meeting of the 20 top-flight chairmen in London today.

"I think they've taken a stride forward, I really do".

They face World Cup qualifiers against Chile and Argentina during the global break. "It's not a good situation for us but moaning doesn't help". Even Marouane Fellaini, long maligned by United fans, has been getting in on the act.

Fans can bring their official club shirt to be printed with a Premier League player's name - for free.

The question of who has the upper hand right now between the two Manchester clubs is no doubt answered by the fact that United are yet to be properly tested, and also the fact that City have been tested, and have come away unscathed. Having said this, it would not have escaped Mourinho's thoughts that it was the teams lower down the league that United had most issues with last season, notably when playing at Old Trafford.
