Before the November global break, Man United will play against Benfica once more before visiting Chelsea's Stamford Bridge.

To win away at the champions' home ground, especially against a team who in mid-week recorded a fabulous win away to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, is a feat that mustn't be underestimated.

The north London side will make the trip to Pep Guardiola's all-conquering Manchester City side at the Etihad Stadium in November before the Gunners host Manchester United at The Emirates in early December.

Tenders for the next three-year period - 2019 to 2021 - go out later this year but deals for Brazil, China, sub-Saharan Africa and the United States have already been agreed. However, they have dismantled their opponents so far with a mixture of classical Jose Mourinho defending and brute power up front.

He was booed by supporters back in December, but those boos have now been replaced by cheers, particularly after his brace against Crystal Palace on Saturday, his two-goal salvo at the weekend his first in the Premier League since February 2013. "It's not a good situation for us but moaning doesn't help".

They face World Cup qualifiers against Chile and Argentina during the global break.

Spain to send extra police to Catalonia if independence referendum goes ahead
The " Mossos " - as they are often referred to in Catalonia - are the largest police force in the northeastern region. Colonel Diego PĂ©rez de los Cobos has been put in charge of Catalan police forces in the autonomous region.

The issue has been simmering for years and former Liverpool CEO Ian Ayre has led calls for clubs to be able to sell their foreign rights on an individual basis which would allow the big ones to cash in more on their global marketability. They also have the form of Marouane Fellaini - once booed by United fans - to be thankful for.

Valencia has been consistently one of United's best-performing stars over the past few seasons.

But any change in the current format would need a two-thirds majority or 14 out of 20 Premier League clubs.

The Foxes failed to earn their first win since a 2-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion on August 26; they are now in 17th place with just five points.

Mourinho has stressed on several occasions that it would take Lindelof time to fully acclimatise to the vicissitudes of Premier League football this season.
