EPL: Feud with Jose Mourinho is over, says Antonio Conte

Paul Pogba's poor attitude is at least partly behind his poor run of form at Manchester United - that's according to Jamie Redknapp, at least.

Pogba did not start against Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League, with Mourinho opting instead to field young Scott McTominay.

Jose Mourinho is likely to reinstate Pogba to the starting eleven due to that injury to Ander Herrera which could keep the Spaniard out for up to six weeks.

But Conte would not be drawn on questions about his relationship with his predecessor as Chelsea boss at his press conference ahead of Sunday's match.

"We have just started to play these massive games". To be on the bench and to come on without warming up and getting to the pace of the game is not easy.

"He responded in a very professional way both times he was on the bench".

'Billy Graham Finished Faithfully': Lawmakers Mourn the Loss of 'America's Pastor'
We mourn his passing but I know with absolute certainty that today he heard those words, "well done good and faithful servant". White said she had had the opportunity to meet the late pastor and that she has gotten to know some of his family.

The Spain midfielder's absence may be keenly felt this weekend given his superb man-marking job on Eden Hazard when United won last season's Old Trafford encounter - an important role Mourinho had faith in Herrera to carry out.

United were criticised after Wednesday's goalless draw at Sevilla as the Spanish outfit were unfortunate not to secure a surprise victory.

Asked to sum up the campaign, he said: "I think my season, that is the club who judges the season". "It is not about the manager trusting the player". It's as simple as that.

Antonio Conte was full of praise for the Frenchman saying: "We are talking about a top player, about a fantastic player".

I think this one is nearly impossible to call.

"The board know that the relation with me is always good, with the players I don't have any problem, any regret and stone on my shoes, no problems at all, and the fans, fans are fans".

And only one company in the country produces the high-quality aluminum alloy used for military aerospace purposes. Trump said the USA steel and aluminum industries "are being decimated by dumping and from many countries".

He said:"Our performance against Barcelona can give great confidence to our players, and at the same time it shows that if we work hard as a team, it is very difficult to play against us".

Sports looks at the best of Mourinho and Conte's war of words. For sure, Old Trafford misses knockout Champions League.

Mourinho has indicated he is willing to bury the hatchet and Conte said: "In the past both said things".

Winning the return leg at home also seems to have an additional benefit, as five of the seven teams to do so in the round of 16 have reached the final.

January was dominated by the tit-for-tat public argument between Mourinho and Conte.

"At Juventus, he had the experience of Andrea Pirlo to guide him, but he needs to take charge of this United team".

"We have to play in a similar way". Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have more than played their part when chosen as United's centre-back pairing in the league this season.
