"Matic is injured but will play for sure, I'm telling the truth but he will play for sure", Mourinho declared towards the end of a lengthy injury update.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino may have accepted his team are not in the title race anymore, but Wenger has not and I think you could argue that Arsenal have deserved more points this season while the spuds have got just wjhat they deserved.

The France global was a shock inclusion in the 3-1 defeat to the Red Devils after Wenger had categorically stated he would miss the game after limping out of the midweek victory over Huddersfield at half-time. Leave him at home?

"I thought he wouldn't play".
