Southampton Confirm The Sacking Of Mark Hughes

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will always have a place in his heart for Southampton his first English club. But for today he is focused only on ensuring Spurs win to keep pace with the top four

Hughes, who signed a three-year contract in May, won just five of his 27 games in charge at St. Mary's and leaves following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

Goals from Lukaku and Herrera in the 33rd and 39th minutes respectively brought United back to the game as both sides headed into half-time level.

In a largely lifeless second half their only shot on target was a tame overhead effort from Paul Pogba, and Mourinho's already stretched squad saw Luke Shaw and Lukaku limp off late on, while Ashley Young picked up a fifth booking of the season which rules him out of Wednesday's league game at home to Arsenal.

Two early goals from Stuart Armstrong and Cedric Soares put the hosts ahead in the 13th and 18th minutes of the meeting.

With Chris Smalling injured, Mourinho deployed three central defenders but the Portuguese refused to blame his system for United's sluggish start.

"The players don't understand that simplicity is genius".

Putin says Russian Federation 'satisfied' with oil at $60
Saudi Arabia benefits by drilling the cheapest oil in the world because of low capital spending and absence of gross tax on oil. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a key Trump administration ally, wants prices at $80 or more for his economic reforms.

"With all the respect, we don't have many mad dogs that bite the ball and press all the time we don't have many people with that spirit".

Mourinho felt United were the stronger side but seemed to be happy that they got their point after The Saints had raced into a two-goal lead in the first 20 minutes. I don't think it would be wise to even consider anything after that.

"We just have to try and win every game".

The United boss supposedly hauled his players into an 11am team meeting at the Hilton Ageas Bowl.

Despite the fight back, Mourinho was left to lament the dropped points.

One fan said: "This is really the ideal clip to show how frustrating Pogba can be", while another mentioned: "First 2 seconds fantastic, last 2 seconds bad". This is double standard (@wabbillionaire)It makes so much sense to sack #Mourinho now, no meaningful champions league for a while. we aren't going to win the league, best we can hope for is top 4, and that's looking remote.
