Pep Guardiola: Gabriel Jesus could feature for Manchester City against Arsenal

• Brazilian expected to play in FA Cup semi-final after return from injury
• Guardiola confirms John Stones will be absent from Wembley

Pep Guardiola has revealed Gabriel Jesus could start Manchester City’s FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal in a return that would be nearly a month earlier than the original prognosis regarding his metatarsal injury suggested.

However, it is understood that if the Brazilian is in the starting XI at Wembley it would represent a surprise and he may have to settle for a place on the bench.

Manchester United 2-0 Chelsea: five talking points from Old Trafford | Jamie Jackson

Mourinho puts one over on Conte, Rashford and Lingard offer United vision of post-Ibrahimovic era and Hazard’s lack of hunger whets Spurs’ appetite

At times José Mourinho has been cast as a fading force. Not after this. By the end Antonio Conte stood in rain in the technical area looking clueless. Manchester United’s victory derived from Mourinho’s tactical masterclass with the attacking axis of Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford, and Ander Herrera’s man‑marking of Eden Hazard. It is the ideal boost before the Europa League quarter-final second leg against Anderlecht on Thursday, with the tie poised at 1-1. Before this match Mourinho posited there was “no emotion” in meeting his former club despite two previous defeats and the abuse received during those visits to west London. Do not believe him.

José Mourinho blames Manchester United’s forwards for Anderlecht draw

• Leander Dendoncker heads home late equaliser for home side
• Henrikh Mkhitaryan scores away goal in Europa League quarter-final first leg

José Mourinho said Manchester United’s defenders should be “upset” with their attackers for not finishing off Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-final first leg, the manager naming Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcus Rashford, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial as those culpable.

United led through Mkhitaryan’s 10th of the season after he struck on 37 minutes and, until Leander Dendoncker’s equaliser three minutes from time, Mourinho’s men were in charge. However, despite their superiority, they could not capitalise.
