José Mourinho has vowed to clear his name by fighting an FA charge for swearing into a TV camera in Portuguese after Manchester United's win over Newcastle United this month. We lost Alexis with Chile, we lost - who else?

Alexis Sanchez again looks set to miss out against Everton this weekend, while Phil Jones, Diogo Dalot and Marouane Fellaini could also be absent once more.

"And some of them, the national teams they were very professional with us and they send the players back and we could start the process early". So when the players arrived here two days before [the] Chelsea [game], we have no idea of what is going on, but we have to deal with this and now we're trying to resolve problems a little bit step-by-step.

Sanchez's last goal came just before the global break when he headed the last-gasp victor in Manchester United's dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle.

United return to Premier League action on Sunday with the visit of Everton.

Here are three things we learnt from the match.

That almost as much as what was sold Saturday ($3,213,995), the first drawing after the top prize hit ten digits. Here's how Mega Millions used to work: Players picked five numbers from 1 to 75 and a Mega number from 1 to 15.

The Spain global has been ever-present for United this season, playing in all nine of the club's Premier League games, though he has conceded a total of 16 goals.

"I think he's the kind of player that needs to be really sharp to play his best game".

"Then he felt in an impossible situation to play football, so now he's going back and to do the work to try and be 100 per cent.

When I say quality I don't just say creative players - Chiellini and Bonucci, it is absolutely handsome to see".

"One day it will be, he will score and one day his confidence levels will be back to normal, which clearly they are not there".

Ibrahimovic, meanwhile, has also distanced himself from a move back to United as he wants to properly recover after his first stint in Major League Soccer.
