For a change, Manchester United make the headlines.

"I don't think he will manage in England", Alain Migliaccio told Le Journal Du Dimanche.

United found themselves 2-0 down after just nine minutes thanks to goals from Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto but roared back in the second half to claim the win courtesy of Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Sanchez.

Leader Manchester City and second-place Liverpool meet on Sunday, the same day as Chelsea faces Southampton, and Arsenal plays London rival Fulham.

The build-up to the game was dominated by reports suggesting Jose Mourinho would be sacked over the weekend with fans at Old Trafford voicing their support for the Portuguese boss even when they were trailing in the first half. They scored a great goal and then they put [Marouane] Fellaini, they put Alexis on.

After Alexis Sanchez's last minute victor had given him some breathing space, Mourinho admitted he was wrong to pick youngsters Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay for the game.

Cardiff were reduced to 10 when Joe Ralls was sent off in the 58th minute at Wembley Stadium.
