Even though it was only pre-season, United's 4-1 defeat against Liverpool in Ann Arbor, Michigan - in front of a 95,000 strong crowd - really stung the manager and properly unravelled Mourinho's frustration and general negativity in a rather revealing press conference.

Tottenham Hotspur v Crystal Palace Preview | FA Cup 5th Round

We are in for a feisty London derby when the North meets South at White Hart Lane in an FA Cup fifth round encounter on Sunday.
