D.C. United's Wayne Rooney thinks he still has Premier League quality

Manchester United will collide against Fulham at the weekend and have a great chance of moving into the top four as Chelsea play Man City on Sunday.

Rooney was the embodiment of Sam Allardyce's stodgy Everton era; a slow-paced player for a side who needs more dynamism than that.

England worldwide Jones could return and replace Bailly to partner Lindelof in the central defence.

Higher up, there should be a return to the starting XI for Anthony Martial after Alexis Sanchez struggled to have a serious effect on proceedings having got the nod at Leicester. Marcus Rashford ought to be selected as the focal point in attack, although Romelu Lukaku stands by just in case the England man can not recover from a dead leg. I've supported United for many years since I went home. My fans will be happy seeing the players fight for every ball.

Since his appointment in the late December, the 45-year-old has transformed Manchester United into an unstoppable force to reckon with in the Premier League.

Iraq's president also rejected Trump's remarks, saying the US does not have permission to use the country as a listening station. Votel said the USA withdrawal from Syria would be cautious and deliberate, and noted that IS are still not beaten.

In addition to Solskjaer's impressive run as temporary manager (10 matches played, nine wins, one draw) providing a strong case for the former United striker, it's thought that the Red Devils' hierarchy are fearful of getting their preferred targets - thus putting Solskjaer as the leading candidate for the job.

The Gunners will face Belarusian side BATE Borisov in the last 32 of the competition starting with the first leg next week.

Pogba has netted six goals and five assists in the eight Premier League games since Mourinho was dismissed.

It was a remarkable turnaround for a club that won three-of-the-first-four MLS Cups after the league launched in 1996 but had fallen on tough times in recent years. It will be shown on NBCSN in the United States, and on various channels around the world.
