Manchester United target Spurs boss Pochettino to replace Mourinho

Dec.12 Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho looks out from the bench prior a Group H Champions League soccer match between Valencia and Manchester United at the Mestalla Stadium in Valencia Spain

Manchester United have sacked Jose Mourinho after Saturday's defeat at Liverpool left the club 11 points adrift of the Premier League top four.

Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho goes to shake hands with Liverpool's German manager Jurgen Klopp after the English Premier League football match between Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield in Liverpool.

Carrick joined Mourinho's coaching staff following his retirement in May and could be appointed caretaker manager until the end of the season.

United have made their worst start to a league season in 28 years and were beaten 3-1 by arch-rivals Liverpoool on Sunday in what was Mourinho's final match in charge of the club.

May 21, 2017 - Ends Premier League season with home win against Crystal Palace as United finish sixth, 24 points behind champions Chelsea.

Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal as United boss in 2016 and won two trophies in his first campaign after leading the club to Europa League and League Cup success.

Despite Mourinho leaving United in a sorry state after just over two and a half years at Old Trafford, the club thanked him for his service in a club statement after breaking the news of his sacking.

Liverpool will take on fellow five-time winners Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions League, while Jose Mourinho's struggling Manchester United face French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

With Liverpool getting frustrated at 1-1 and running out of ideas in the final third, the introduction of Shaqiri turned the game on its head, upgrading one point into three.

Oil surges as OPEC+ is said to agree on cuts
Production cuts or embargoes by OPEC have led to huge increase in petroleum prices in the past, which have been termed oil shocks. This followed a notable rise in export levels the previous week, and therefore reflects a normal variation for many OPEC states.

April 7, 2018 - Paul Pogba scores twice and Chris Smalling gets the victor as United come from two goals behind to win 3-2 at Manchester City and prevent Guardiola's side securing the Premier League title in the derby.

The former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan manager left the club after two and a half years in charge of the Red Devils.

Only then, under a different coach, might we get to see the best of Pogba at United.

"I'm always pleased because he always plays on his limits", Mourinho told United's official website.

"Liverpool just have the edge but there isn't a massive gulf in the quality of players Liverpool have compared to Manchester United".

Roberto Firmino was at the center of Liverpool's maelstrom, hustling and harrying opposition players while delivering cutting interventions going forward.

"They were the toughest team we could get".

"I would like to play on Wednesday, but I can't, so we have to wait for February", City sporting director Txiki Begiristain said, noting Schalke has a three-week break coming up.

It is understood players and staff were not happy after a disappointing and unsettling period.
