Stage left we had Mourinho accusing Manchester City of a lack of class and respect in their exuberant celebrations following Sunday's derby that prompted him to stick his nose around their dressing room door and sparked the fracas between players and coaches.

It has been claimed milk and water were thrown at Mourinho after a reported confrontation with City goalkeeper Ederson, leading to an altercation involving up to 20 players and staff in the crowded corridor leading to the dressing rooms.

He said: "Bye. Bye".

Bournemouth arrive at Old Trafford having picked up just three points from their last four league games and they sit 14th in the table so Eddie Howe will be desperate for a positive result this evening.

The City players had been celebrating their well earned victory rather loudly, and the Portuguese boss took it upon himself to give them a reminder about respect.

The inflation numbers also exceeded RBI estimates that retail inflation numbers will remain within 4.2 per cent to 4.6 per cent. In November, the Bank of England raised its key interest rate for the first time in more than a decade from 0.25% to 0.5%.

"I think it is a serious injury and it has come from the last time he was with his national team", said Mourinho after the 1-0 win over Bournemouth.

When a reporter asked Mourinho if he feared punishment over the brawl, he responded: "I think you work for another club and not for the press".

"I said we play match after match and the next we have to try to win, we have a hard one at West Brom and we try match after match".

Shifting to the other side, City boss Pep Guardiola issued an apology over the manner in which his side celebrated. We won a derby, what do people expect we don't celebrate? But I also know that he really likes me as a person, so there's no issue about the discipline being for the wrong reasons.

The former Monaco wonderkid had the ideal opportunity to double Manchester United's advantage in the second half but somehow failed to hit the target from five yards. "We have to enjoy those moments". "No respect for their players?"
