Jose Mourinho has outlined how his Manchester United team have been preparing for Saturday’s big game against Tottenham Hotspur.
Mourinho's men made the long trip to Bournemouth on Wednesday night, beating the Cherries 2-0. But, instead of returning to Manchester, the squad travelled directly to the capital and have been using Championship club Fulham’s training ground in west London.
“First of all, to thank them [Fulham] because they let us use the best facilities,”Mourinho said.
“Yesterday [Thursday] they let us use the stadium Craven Cottage and today [Friday] I asked for a pitch on the training ground [Motspur Park] and Jokanovic, the manager, gave me their best pitch so I have to thank Fulham and Joka for that.

“I think it’s just good for us after the Bournemouth game, instead of travelling back to Manchester, getting the plane, then go back home, come back the next day, train to London again. But we just came here [to London], we’re here together, training quietly, preparing for the game the best we can.”
