Jose Mourinho won't 'celebrate like crazy' if Man United win at Chelsea

I don't think so.

"If you look at my situation in the past year and a bit, you'd have thought this could have been impossible".

Luke Shaw has signed a bumper new five-year contract at Manchester United believed to be worth £195,000-per-week, representing an astonishing and admirable turnaround for the 23-year-old.

Shaw's struggles dated back to his horrific leg break against PSV Eindhoven in a Champions League game in September 2015 which kept him out until April of the following year and at times left him wondering if he would ever play again. "We have an fantastic group of players and the talent we have is scary, there are a lot of young lads that are hungry for trophies".

Mourinho has condemned Shaw's attitude and focus in the past while he questioned the tactical awareness of the defender following an FA Cup win over Brighton in March.

"I think I will try always to control myself and to respect the stadium and supporters that were my supporters and my stadium for many years".

You can see why that would be grating for one of the Premier League's top attacking talents; a player like Sanchez is hardly going to feel appreciated if he's being praised for being a workhorse more than for what he's good at.

But Fultz's play was so bad last season, that he wasn't good enough to convince a team to give up their unhappy star for him. The Celts shot 36.5 percent in the first half, which allowed the 76ers to hang around at least numerically for a while.

Shaw had been linked with a reunion with his former Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham, but he now looks set to be part of United's long-term plans after signing a deal that reportedly included a hefty pay rise.

"He stayed behind in Manchester because I'm playing with Daley Blind, with Marcos Rojo, with Matteo Darmian, and all of them are playing the way I like a full-back to play", the manager said.

United trail Premier League leaders Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City by seven points after eight games with speculation surrounding how long Mourinho will keep his job.

The youngest player in England's 2014 World Cup squad appeared to have turned the corner courtesy of an important part in rescuing a last-gasp draw with Everton in April 2017, only for Mourinho to sensationally claim Shaw only played well because he was telling him what to do.

"Luke, in the first half, every time they went in his corridor the cross was coming and a risky situation was coming, so I was not happy with the performance". He tells people he's the best coach, so he should now prove that.

"Mentally, physically, he is stronger".
